    There's little bits of info in the genealogies that match with stories of people's lives. I'd miss huge gaps in Genesis until I slowed down to literally read at a snails pace.

    Keep 'Cliff' in your Bible and pray for him to turn back to God.

  • Jesse - in Reply on 1 Timothy 5:18
    Carl,

    There are two pieces of scripture here that Paul uses to back up what he is saying. First of all, Deuteronomy 25:4 says thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treads out the corn.

    In 1 Corinthians Chapter 9, Paul says you don't think that God was talking about oxen do you? If you have an oxen treading the corn, you got to feed that oxen too or else he's not going to be around to tread the corn for you.

    The second scripture is Luke 10:7, the words of Jesus where He says the laborer is worthy of his reward, or hire. So Paul is saying that we should acknowledge those who labor in the word, and in doctrine, and make sure that they're taken care of.

    This goes along with what Bendito is saying which I completely agree with!
