Sitting in Sunday School this morning, our teacher asked everyone to turn to 1st John, chapter three, verse four. I love this scripture, as it defines what sin is. Let me ask you, before you go further, what is sin?
Its clearly defined for us. My Pastor said “We should believe what Jesus says about the Word of God”., and he is right. My Pastor also said “When we contradict Yahweh, we blaspheme Him”, which is also true.
So what is sin, brothers?
Most people in your church, including you, likely do not know. Our Pastors teach continually the necessity of “not sinning”. We all know sin = bad. We all know we are sinners, yet as Paul said, we do continually obey our flesh and deny our minds, ultimately we sin. But sin can be avoided, because Yahuah tells us plainly each sin. In writing.

Armed Defense Is Double Commanded By Jesus
After church today I enjoyed several good conversations and one exceptional one. Once per month at our gem of a church, we all have lunch together within the church. We sit down, break bread and actually talk and get to know one another.

Remember when you first started using email, and sometimes you would hit the SEND key before you edited your fresh composition? Or maybe you wrote a real payback-is-hell email to your boss or wife or husband or friend, and it was mostly an exercise of “Oh I wish I could send this”, and you sent it?
I did that two minutes ago.
Not an email but a posting that went out to a whole bunch of subscribers. It is a piece about fidelity, respect, obedience from wives to husbands. I have some wonderful women who subscribe to me and I do try to be sensitive to “feelings”.
Nonetheless, Yahuah is no respector of persons, so neither should we be. And wrong is wrong. Sin is sin and we all need to love more faithfully.
I’d like to speak to Mr., now. Husband, father, son – the man. Commanded to love his wife repeatedly by Yahuah, what does that tell us about men? Continue reading “Loving Puts A Shine On Your Soul”
