Discussion for Proverbs 1:26

    Anthony once a person gets born again what We have been given is perfect in an imperfect body, so the potential to sin is always there. Read Romans 8 about walking by the spirit. The true God does not want us walking around afraid of Him why would He as a Loving Father want to harm His Spiritual Children, thats like saying if you have a child who doesn't listen then one day he changes and desires to obey all the time you still think bad of the child, doesn't make any sense. Hense God is almighty but also a tender loving merciful and forgiving father, also in Romans its the goodness of God that leads us to repentance. Endeavor not to think about the past, and look towards your future with your True Father and His Son. Good Day.

    Don't laugh at other people's calamities.
  • Marcus Ffrench on Proverbs 1:26
    I believe it aligns with Psalm 2 and Romans 1.
  • John Juai on Proverbs 1:26
    The Word of God is truth because what may be known of God is manifest in them,for God has shown it them. "Because I have called and you refused. I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way."
    "Can two walk together unless they are agreed? If there is a calamity in the city, will not the LORD have done it? (Amos 3:3,6)"Who has made man`s mouth...Have not I the LORD? (Ex.4:11)"And did not choose the fear of the LORD." (Prov.1:29)
  • Evalena Jacobs-Latham on Proverbs 1:26
    What a mighty and loving God we serve who willingly gives wisdom to those who asks. How sad for those who don't.
  • Katherine on Proverbs 1:26
    Not only will others laugh when the purposeful sinner distresses, but God will as well. Since the sinner will not accept Godís mercies when they were freely given, the mercy will turn into contempt.
