Discussion for Proverbs 1

  • Bro WIlliam
    No man can teach you except by the Holy Ghost. But beware of false brothers and avoid them. You need not that any man teach you because the Anointing which is the Holy Ghost teaches all men to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts. To live soberly and righteous in this adulterous and perverse generation. Flee fornication. Pluck out the eye beholding abominations. Cut off supplies to fulfill your lust

    Thank God for sending His Son Jesus Christ for our sins and giving us His words that we can obtain the knowledge and understanding of His words to live our daily lives and will not stray from His laws. He Loves us so much , He gave His life for us . What more do we want to know how much He loves us, and He still give us His words and Laws to live our live by.

    I believe ultimately it doesn't really matter what I think/ don't think about Proverbs. What ultimately matters is God's intention purpose in writing it and plans then my take away and the way I implement it matters most
