    I was feeling very depressed and I read I Corinthians 3 about envy and strife and it was as if the LORD was speaking directly to me because there has been a lot of both envy and strife in my home. I am glad that I know my LORD and SAVIOR and that I can find comfort in his words. Amen
  • A disciple
    "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ." A newborn baby is a beautiful miracle of life and regeneration. The family looks with wonder at the little tiny hands and fingers and feet and toes, and the little face; and has to take very gentle care for this most helpless little person. Thank God we don't stay babies for long!

    Eternal truths-So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.

    Ray321, You just corrected yourself. With the scripture u used.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Ray: Romans 7 is past tense, Paul is telling us who he ((was)) under sin. Paul uses the law of divorce and remarriage to show us that death is the only way to be remarried, in this case death is the way to separate from from the devil sin and be married unto Jesus to righteousness. 33 times Paul uses the letter ((I)) to show that you are in trouble if you are walking the way he did in sin.
