Discussion for Psalms 10

    We see/experience the trouble caused by the wicked and,in our impatience,cry to God for justice,now.The wicked exist only in the mercy of God, as he withholds judgement,as with believers also.Known only to God is his plan for every person. "I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."Rom9:15 Having grace we ought to pray,thy will be done.
  • A disciple
    "Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined." We thank the LORD for the hedge of protection that He's put around us. But as it went with so many of brothers and sisters before us, we too may soon be called upon to prove our faith by patient endurance.
  • A disciple
    Jesus came NOT to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. All manner of sin shall be forgiven the sons of men and blasphemies howsoever they have blasphemed; but the blasphemy of the Holy Ghost has NEVER forgiveness, neither in this world, nor the next. Love thy neighbor as thyself! Pray for those in authority, that we may have a quiet and peaceful world to live in all honesty and piety.
  • A disciple
    "The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken." Psalm 37:14-15 The tree is known by its fruit. If the Righteous elect a man who wants to do good for the Country; who are they that violently oppose and contradict and accuse?
  • Son of David
    God will not forgive workers of iniquity, which is so widespread as to be commonplace even in the Church. Look at the leaders the so called Christians helped elect. Are there no judges of character, no moral understanding of what God is plainly telling us in the Bible!. Lies are evil!
