Scripture… As We Live It #45

Posted by on Mar 15, 2009 in as we live it, scripture | 3 comments

Here is the 45th installment of “Scripture… As We Live It“:

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained separated from the world. (James 1:27 re-mix)

    We do seem a little too eager to separate ourselves and live in a Christian bubble instead of going out into the world.

    Matthew 28:19-20 tells us to go, not wait until the world comes to us.

    i must so associate ‘unstained’ with separated in this passage that at first i couldn’t see what you had changed. reckon that’s why my mind needs to be renewed by the word. thanks

    Andy,

    That’s a great way to look at Matt 28:19-20!

    Anonymous,

    I understand what you’re saying. These “As We Live It” passages are often in your face, but some are subtle.
