    Where did the word "still " come from? I have always heard it quoted as such! But I cannot find that! We aren 't suppose to " add to " His Word so I 'd like to know.

  • Believer
    I came here hoping to get clarity......thank you all so much for confusing me a little further. The one thing you all agreed on is that God does not like chaos and confusion yet you all cannot agree, could that be that we 're all still trying to edify ourselves. God 's word is clear and concise if we seek understanding knowledge and wisdom from Him that given so freely. I believe I will now do exactly that and read this scripture again.
  • Deborah Perry for verse 33
    This is so comforting. Our God is a God of order. Disorder and confusion are Satans weapons.
