Scripture… As We Live It #19

Posted by on Sep 14, 2008 in as we live it, discipleship, discipline, ordinances/sacraments | 4 comments

Here is the 19th edition of “Scripture… As We Live It“:

These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, looking after themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever. Therefore, stop having love feasts altogether. If people are going to come in and spout heresy, then it is much better to cut out that kind of fellowship. Or, if you want to have fellowship and feasts, make sure that you tightly control who can speak. It is much easier to keep everyone from talking than to deal with the ones who cause trouble.(Jude 12-13 re-mix)

    I think you may need to change the format of the remixes with your new theme. The light blue is hard to read on the white.

    Oh I think you should keep it very light blue, maybe go little more aqua perhaps. Just in case people think that it is what it really says. Ugh. And if you keep tight control on everyone how do you discern those who just need to be pulled from the fire?

    Love feasts and those messy dishes.

    Just kidding about the light blue – it is a little too light.

    Lew,

    Since you changed your font size for me, I suppose that I can change my font color for you. Seriously, thanks. I wrote these about a month ago, when the background was still dark blue.

    Lanny,

    Exactly… messy dishes and messy lives. We don’t want either one as part of our church meetings, now do we?

    Alan,

    So true! Didn’t know you knew me thirty years ago! Can be very painful once ones eyes are opened!
