Discussion for Proverbs 6

    Would the signing on a marital license of an already married man be baring false witness ?

    Spreading lies that you know not to be true to harm someone would this apply as well ?
  • Mishael on Proverbs 6:19
    Babies born alive after attempted abortions have been left to die. It's sickening and must be stopped.

    We've seen laws considered or passed in New York and Virginia that could allow infanticide. Congress has refused to require lifesaving protection be provided to babies who have actually been born.

    But the President recently signed an Executive order in an effort to change all of this. It's a massive step in the right direction for life. As President Trump said, he was "signing the born alive Executive order to assure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty."

    It is absolutely our moral duty, and something for which we at the ACLJ have been aggressively fighting for years.

    Every baby deserves a chance at life. Every baby deserves medical care and legal protections. But the abortion lobby is doing everything it can to block these protections.

    We're fighting to protect babies - born and unborn. But we need you to take action with us.

    ACLJ to sign the Petition

    Mishael,

    Great information.

    The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is a great website.

    Good job POTUS.

    Went to website, couldn't find petition for abortion, but did sign petition for Supreme Court Justice nominee Barrett.

    Thanks.

    We are in a battle till our last breadth. A spiritual battle that we need the armor of God. Receiving the Holy Ghost and being in Christ. Resisting lusts of the flesh and foul recesses of the heart that defile us such as: evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness, anger, wrath, malice, lewdness, filthy communication out of your mouth, uncleanness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, lie not one to another, etc.

    Be ready to be hated by the world and looked upon as fools. Those who are lead to the Truth are the minority in this world. Continually being persecuted and tortured.

    "If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

    "As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter."

    "He said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

    For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it."

    Only God truly knows evrything in our hearts. He sees what no other man sees, knows what no one else knows. Don't be afraid if you are still battling with sin as we all are. Show God how much you love Him by striving to follow Jesus Christ and repent from sin. Some of us will have fights harder than others will. "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."

    God Bless us everyone! Love one another as He loves us!

    Thank you Richard for that important word to encourage us. Indeed, the spiritual battle will go on & on & continue to rage, as those who are the children of Light & Truth continue to wage was against the enemy of our souls. And I've learnt that even by reason of age, the battle does not become any less severe or relentless. And we are not on our own in this warfare, for "greater is he that is in (us), than he that is in the world." 1 John 4:4.

    It is very deadly wrong to defend sinning in any way .
  • Richard in Christ on Proverbs 6:19
    Hello my brothers and sisters,

    "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use and persecute you."

    "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy."

    "For with the same measure that ye mete with it shall be measured to you again."

    "Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

    The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

    I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

    And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

    I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted."

    "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."

    Praise the Lord! "In all thy ways acknowledge Him." God Bless!

    How and where did Peter die?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 6:19
    We understand the the apostle Peter died by martyrdom during Emperor's Nero's reign & persecution of Christians. This was approx 67 or 68 AD. His death was also confirmation to what Jesus had told him in John 21:18, 19:

    "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me." And, 2 Peter 1:14, where Peter himself spoke of his upcoming death: "Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me."

    We are not told how Peter died, though tradition says that he was crucified like His Saviour, but elected to be hung upside down so as not to resemble Jesus' crucifixion. An early Church father & theologian, Origen, said: "Peter felt himself to be unworthy to be put to death in the same manner as his Master". However, there is no certainty on the manner of his death. And the place of his martyrdom is also said to be in Rome, where the apostle Paul was also martyred by beheading.
