    Verse 25: We want to build a solid spiritual foundation so that when the winds of various trials blow we can remain grounded.

    Give not which is holy unto the dogs Jesus said Be ye Holy for I am Holy I am the vine and you are the fruit. We are nothing without Jesus as our vine neither a good tree can never produce a good fruit where a corrupt tree will only produce evil fruits. God has given us life to choose to follow him for he is the only rock and my salvation in him there is no darkness I will praise you Jesus forever
  • A disciple
    "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." This verse has long been a favorite 'go to' saying about not speaking to those who show themselves unworthy and incapable of receiving the Word, because of their brutish and or Satanic nature. This goes with how the Lord warned in another place, to "Beware of men, for they will deliver you up.." But Read the whole portion in its context, and you'll see that the warning is used, not BECAUSE they are unfit to hear, so much as it is for us not to cause ourselves unnecessary hurt and danger BY HYPOCRISY. The precious and holy things we bear in our preaching and teaching, are known and read of all men alongside our character and behavior. Although in a very grave sense they "know not what they do " God has nevertheless given it to them to see the "City Lights which He has set on a hill " and demands that our witness be true and faithful, agreeing with the Spirit's convictions He has ordained and uses through us and our words.

    Ruth (cont.); Just wanted to say, that I agree with you! I don't mean to 'nit pick' (and I wasn't 'finding fault' with what you wrote at all!); but I wanted to emphasize that the idea of one having to belong to a Church and subject himself without thinking, Is this right? is misleading, and a potentially terrible dangerous snare. Birds of a feather flock together. People flock to those they like!
