    In Mark 10 we learn from the Pharisees and from some kids on how we approach Jesus. Do we try to justify ourselves, or be justified by God?

    I can relate to this weekly TV series as there is an acknowledgement of our sinful selves, and attempts made to justify ourselves by doing something good or noble or perfectly just.

    TITLE: THE BLACKLIST SCRIPTURE: PROVERBS 6:16-19 I know this seems to be a strange passage to select on this MOTHER’S DAY. Usually we talk about –VIRTUOUS WOMAN – WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MOTHER – SELECT SOME TEXT SURROUNDING SOME OF THE GREAT WOMEN IN THE BIBLE. Can I ...read more

Plain lies, flat-out lies, and ...read more
