Discussion for Proverbs 1

  • A disciple
    Brandie; It is so glaringly apparent that the Churches are teaching FALSE DOCTRINE! God was not more severe to the people of old time under the first covenant, than to the people from the time of Christ's first coming; but for Jesus' sake He waits for the fullness of the Nations to come in.
  • Brandie Burleson
    In response to Sinner82, this is the old testament before Jesus came. God's judgment was harsher before Jesus. He did not enjoy destroying the wicked, that's why He sent His son to die so that sinners like us would no longer be destroyed, but have a way for forgiveness.
  • A disciple
    Sinner; Perhaps you should try and read the chapter again a few times, slowly; and take note. It is not about God taking pleasure in bringing evil upon you, as you blasphemously suggest; but about men, as God's sons, should hear their Father's instructions, and take a course in life after His good character; and not be a defiant sinner and heathen; in the end good for nothing but to be destroyed.

  • Sinner82
    I thought He took no pleasure in the destruction of the wicked.....this doesn't add up

    Verse 10: Those who are doing bad things may try to entice others to join them in their bad course but here we are warned not to follow them and consent.
