Discussion for Luke 14

  • A disciple
    If we only go by what is the language of the Scriptures of truth, and forget for a few minutes all the things many teachers and pastors have SAID was the meaning; then we see that its not unlawful to actually be just, and therefore to claim that one is just. God gave us a whole Bible so that we would be just and true, toward Himself and toward each other. How else can we learn to discern judgment?
  • Servant of God
    The resurrection of the just, no man can claim to be just and on his own sit in the higher seats lest he be shown the door, so to speak. Or before we build we asses the cost lest we be mocked for the shambles we leave behind. Who is just then is whom God deems to be just and His message to us, the Bible, contains the criterion necessary, if we read daily and absorb the meaning thru tenacity
