Morning meditation

28 Feb., 2020 On Our Stay Among “Believer Baptizers” We have enjoyed our fellowship and our membership in a church here in Ohio which baptizes only those who “believe” (confessing their faith) and excludes the children of those believers from baptism until such time as they “feel” saved and affirm the faith in which they […]

Against That Time

Against that time, if ever that time come,When I shall see thee frown on my defects,When as thy love hath cast his utmost sum,Call’d to that audit by advis’d respects;Against that time when thou shalt strangely passAnd scarcely greet me with that sun thine eye,When love, converted from the thing it was,Shall reasons find of […]

Not a “Homophobe”

Re: https://www.thoughtco.com/why-some-conservatives-oppose-gay-marriage-3303437 Nope.  Not afraid of  ’em.  Never thought sodomy was a good idea.  Never found it appealing, must less the right thing to do.  But more important than my sentiments are God’s opinions, sentiments, and His Declaration.  Indeed, it is not “my opinion” on which I rest my case and mind-set and orientation.  It […]
