Let Your Light Shine

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Dec 6, 2011 - 1:59 am

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.



The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here.

The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here.

No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.

Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.

Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.

Evil Hypocrites Ensure You Die Then Mourn Your Death

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 - 3:38 pm

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.

In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous.

Poor Gives More

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sat, Aug 6, 2011 - 10:17 pm

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts.

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything — all she had to live on.”

Freedom for You

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sat, Jul 2, 2011 - 11:10 pm

A special 4th of July Message for the Prohibitionists and Drug Warriors.

 

Therefore, this is what the LORD says: You have not obeyed me; you have not proclaimed freedom for your fellow countrymen. So I now proclaim “freedom” for you, declares the LORD — “freedom” to fall by the sword, plague and famine. I will make you abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth.
