Question about the "Cruel Messenger"

QUESTION RECEIVED: Who or what is the cruel messenger in Proverbs 17:11?

Proverbs 17:11
An evil man seeks only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

A rebellious man seeks only evil, So a cruel messenger will be sent against him.


I read a funny sign this week that said "I hope karma is true so I do not have to feel sorry for the people I have been mean to since they had it coming." Of course karma is a teaching of

Can Christians Vote For A Mormon?

This blog has been reserved to glorify Jesus, answer questions about the Christian faith and also sometimes just have some fun. We do not have issues that are about controversy for the sake of attention. Politics and faith do interact. How they do is to be carefully evaluated.
I was approached by a reader Janis Hutchinson about being a guest blogger. She is a former Mormon with a Christian ministry in the American Northwest. She was a Mormon for over thirty-four years. She has a Christian Education media ministry.
A question that has been suggested by the

When Is It Time To Leave A Church


I am trying to make a decision on leaving my church and joining another one. I don't feel like I belong at my church anymore and that I can't grow there because the members for the most part do not want to learn they are stuck on tradition. The only reason I still go is because I am the Sunday school teacher after that I leave and go to the church I am thinking about joining where

Tebow Haters -gotta love/laugh at them

Tebow Haters Do Not Understand Why So Many Folks Like Him
Here is why-

1. He is a pro athlete who always gives maximum effort.
2. He plays the game not in the scripted robotic way of the many teams not in the playoffs, who all have the "right/same" playbook of most NFL teams .
3. He is not the cookie cutter combine throwing quarterback who has the right specs and no performance in games.
4. He displays character and praises God win or lose. Christ is still more important than football.
5. It is fun to hear hear the know-it-all haters who despite Tebow's National Championships [2], the Heisman, being a first round draft pick, and a leader who wills his team to many pro victories; just know he is no good despite the facts of his success.

Christianity's Cancer - In our Church and Gospel Presentation

(From 7-25-11 with amendments)

Christianity has a horridly deadly great problem. It is not some intramural snit concerning worship practices. It is not Calvinist vs. Armenians. It is not about spiritual gifts or women in ministry. The problem is that the church has a cancer in it called Universalism, or the belief that salvation will happen for all people, no sins need forgiven, no judgement, no Hell. Sometimes this is just implied by good meaning Christians that just do not like to think about people in hell and are scared to share that we need "to flee the wrath to come" as told by John the Baptist in Matthew 3:7. Often Universalism comes from somewhat honest liberal "Christians" who then wonder why a gospel that does not save (or apparently does not even need to save)is so poorly responded to. The wrath of God is the bad news that unrepentant sinners receive. The Good News is that through the love of Christ, sinners will flee from the wrath of God, be forgiven, be saved from God's wrath by God through Jesus Christ crucified, have peace with God and become citizens of Heaven. Universalist of all kinds refute and trash the Christian's "Great Commission" of Matthew 28:16-20. Therefore, the cross of Jesus Christ is even called by some Universalist as "divine child abuse" as it served no purpose. So their so called good news is that this is really as good as it gets.
People are then left in their filth and destruction by these religious people.

When we look at the church, "The Body of Christ", "The Kingdom", "The House of God", "The Family of God", we must love her because God declared her, and us, to be worthy
for Jesus Christ to die and

Salvation For Sinners? How?


It's from a reader. Male 18-30 Africa
"What do you think about the Bible viewpoint of salvation? Does obeying the law (Moses) guarantee your salvation?


Does obeying the law, you ask, guarantee salvation? NO!
Depending on the law for justification or salvation is a recipe for damnation eternally and a horribly frustrating time while you are
