Yesterday at 01:34 PM God’s Word Is Authoritative [by chestnutmare]
The Scriptures are the word of God. What title can there be of greater value? What may be said of them to make them of greater authority, than to say, “The Lord hath spoken by them? that they came not by the will of men, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost?” (II Peter 1:21) At the word of proclamation of an earthly prince we stand up and vail our bonnets, and give good heed to it; we are bound so to do, it is our duty: such honour belongeth to the powers that are placed to rule over us; for they are ordained of God. And whosoever resisteth them, resisteth the ordinance of God.

Yesterday at 11:32 AM Get humble and abasing thoughts of yourself [by chestnutmare]
Get humble and abasing thoughts of yourself. The humble is ever the patient man. Pride is the source of irregular and sinful passions. A lofty, will be an unyielding and peevish spirit. When we over-rate ourselves, we think that we are treated unworthily, that our trials are too severe: thus we cavil and repine. Christian, you should have such thoughts of yourself as would put a stop to these murmurings. You should have lower and more humiliating views of yourself than any other one can have of you. Get humility, and you will have peace whatever be your trial.

Yesterday at 11:31 AM Resist Temptations [by chestnutmare]
Rise mightily against the first actings of your distemper, its first conceptions; suffer it not to get the least ground. Do not say, “Thus far it shall go, and no farther.” If it have allowance for one step, it will take another. It is impossible to fix bounds to sin. It is like water in a channel—if it once break out, it will have its course. Its not acting is easier to be compassed than its bounding. Therefore does James give that gradation and process of lust (1:14-15), that we may stop at the entrance. Do you find your corruption to begin to entangle your thoughts? Rise up with all your strength against it, with no less indignation than if it had fully accomplished what it aims at. Consider what an unclean thought would have; it would have you roll yourself in folly and filth. Ask envy what it would have—murder and destruction is at the end of it. Set yourself against it with no less vigor than if it had utterly debased you to wickedness. Without this course you will not prevail. As sin gets ground in the affections to delight in, it gets also upon the understanding to slight it.

Yesterday at 02:40 AM Anger and Pride [by chestnutmare]
Be careful to keep a humbled soul that does not think too highly of itself, for humility is patient and does not exaggerate injuries.

A proud man considers things as heinous or intolerable that are said or done against him. He that thinks lowly of himself sees things done or said against him as of little significance. He that magnifies himself sees offences against him also magnified. Pride is a very impatient sin: There is no pleasing a proud person, without a great deal of wit, care, and diligence. You must take as much care around him as you do around straw or gunpowder when you are holding a candle [Proverbs 13:10; 28:25; 21:24; Psalm 21:24]. Humility, meekness, and patience live and die together!

Tue Dec 10, 2019 10:25 PM Galilean history [by John_C]
In reading a Bible dictionary book I have, the only thing it said about the Galileans during the time of Jesus was that many Jews migrated to Galilee during Herod's reign. I wonder why they moved?
