Discussion for Mark 6

  • A disciple
    "And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her." Just BEING SORRY is not repentance if there's nothing in the heart that would act on the Word of God and be converted. Sitting day after day in a stew of conviction, but never getting up and coming to Jesus to get right with God, will only add to the evil of a damned life.
  • A disciple
    "and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things?" How are people more readily inclined to believe evil! God means good to raise up His Saints from among the people, of their own children and their neighbors' children; but His love is scoffed at and wickedly maligned, and the one raised up and sent to them is a scandal to them! Woe to them who call good evil!
  • Obbie Beal
    WOW! In verse 11 above, Jesus mention those ancient /destroyed cities Sodom and Gomorrah, plus He warns us there is 'the day of judgement coming. WOW!
  • A disciple
    "..and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things?.." I think that people too easily excuse each other's faults and evil ways. We could just say about them, "Familiarity breeds contempt;" and let them go for their disbelief: but is that really the way God looks at them? If God raises up His servants from among any people; it is not for them to despise them.
  • Evangelist, Jessie
    Mark 6th Chapter!
    When I read how John was beheaded because he preached the truth. The word have not changed. John was not looking to please man . Therefore he became a true witness for Jesus Christ. We the people of God must never yield to the worlds ways. God has chose us to hold up his name amen.

    Verse 11 tells us how to react when people reject our message. We are simply to shake the dust off our feet and leave. There is no need to argue.
