    Lovetta But verse 9 says clearly what to do. Why are you just praying for him?
  • Lovetta St.John
    I am a former and present believer of Christ, Jesus our Lord and Savior.It is very hard being around doubters and very negative people but by knowing the word, you know the truth no matter what the nay sayers says. Unfortunately, I have the displeasure of working for a boss who tries to deter people from God's word but, I pray for him anyway because he is lost.
  • Perry
    To simplify this chapter..God and his word should influence us foremost.God is utterly stern concerning people negatively influencing others away from God 's ordinances. Influencing someone to trespass against God 's word is worst than the person trespassing on one 's own initiative. evil company corrupts good morals!

    fear of the word of god period i fear him but love him with all thy heart all thy strength all thy mind and all thy spirit

    Jesus allowed Himself to be cruxified and remained passive , so He die for mankind's sin. However He will not be passive the next time He sets foot on earth. He will come as a warrior and king. Many will die an earthly death as well as many will be judged and sent to hell. He does not want believers to be passive or weak physically in our faith.

    @Artiewhitefox,
    If you are sexually involved with animals, please, REPENT! If you die now you won’t be in heaven! REPENT and turn your life over to Jesus, please...
