From Gary... Something to think about...





Please click on the link which I entitled:"Something to think about".  Early on in my life, I learned that I was "average".  Just another kid with a story to tell, quite ordinary in almost everything.  Then, I began to dream of possibilities and somehow became different.  Over time, this led to creativity and that served me well in the chemical laboratories that were to be my home away from home for decades.  Life is a progression.  We start out knowing virtually nothing (except perhaps how to suck or smile- things like that). Then over the years of primary and secondary education we develop into logical thinking beings (maybe).  By the time we complete college, we may have developed the ability for critical thinking; maybe.  Sooner or later though, we will come to the realization that we can't know everything about even just one field of study. That doesn't mean we aren't intelligent; it just means we have limitations.  And that little concept is what the video is about.  If we are fortunate enough to be introspective, then we will turn outward for answers and listen when we encounter truth.  Hopefully, we will absorb it and grow to realize that our shortcomings ARE OUR GREATEST BLESSINGS.  At this point, it would be a good time to review the passages from the Bible and look for a pattern to it AND a point...


Proverbs, Chapter 12
 15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
but he who is wise listens to counsel.


Proverbs, Chapter 1
7 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge;
but the foolish despise wisdom and instruction.



Matthew, Chapter 7
21  Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.   22  Many will tell me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?’   23  Then I will tell them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.’ 

  24  “Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock.   25  The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn’t fall, for it was founded on the rock.   26  Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn’t do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand.  27  The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”


1 Corinthians, Chapter 1
18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the power of God.  19 For it is written, 
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
I will bring the discernment of the discerning to nothing.”

  20  Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the lawyer of this world? Hasn’t God made foolish the wisdom of this world?  21 For seeing that in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom didn’t know God, it was God’s good pleasure through the foolishness of the preaching to save those who believe.  22 For Jews ask for signs, Greeks seek after wisdom,  23 but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews, and foolishness to Greeks,  24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.  25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  26 For you see your calling, brothers, that not many are wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, and not many noble; 27 but God chose the foolish things of the world that he might put to shame those who are wise. God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong;  28 and God chose the lowly things of the world, and the things that are despised, and the things that are not, that he might bring to nothing the things that are:  29 that no flesh should boast before God.  30 But of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption:  31 that, according as it is written, “He who boasts, let him boast in the Lord.”

Simple thought here: since our knowledge and wisdom is limited, why not listen to what is not hindered by such limitations and grow.  God knows more that we can possibly imagine- so why not listen???  Remember the message of the video?  Consider this... in the body of knowledge that you DO NOT HAVE, just might be a truth that will lead to an eternal blessing.  God sent Jesus to teach us what we need to know.... don't you think it is about time you listened???

The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.

Sept. 30
2 Corinthians 10

2Co 10:1 Now I Paul, myself, entreat you by the humility and gentleness of Christ; I who in your presence am lowly among you, but being absent am of good courage toward you.
2Co 10:2 Yes, I beg you that I may not, when present, show courage with the confidence with which I intend to be bold against some, who consider us to be walking according to the flesh.
2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we don't wage war according to the flesh;
2Co 10:4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the throwing down of strongholds,
2Co 10:5 throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;
2Co 10:6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience will be made full.
2Co 10:7 Do you look at things only as they appear in front of your face? If anyone trusts in himself that he is Christ's, let him consider this again with himself, that, even as he is Christ's, so also we are Christ's.
2Co 10:8 For though I should boast somewhat abundantly concerning our authority, (which the Lord gave for building you up, and not for casting you down) I will not be disappointed,
2Co 10:9 that I may not seem as if I desire to terrify you by my letters.
2Co 10:10 For, "His letters," they say, "are weighty and strong, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech is despised."
2Co 10:11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when we are absent, such are we also in deed when we are present.
2Co 10:12 For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are without understanding.
2Co 10:13 But we will not boast beyond proper limits, but within the boundaries with which God appointed to us, which reach even to you.
2Co 10:14 For we don't stretch ourselves too much, as though we didn't reach to you. For we came even as far as to you with the Good News of Christ,
2Co 10:15 not boasting beyond proper limits in other men's labors, but having hope that as your faith grows, we will be abundantly enlarged by you in our sphere of influence,
2Co 10:16 so as to preach the Good News even to the parts beyond you, not to boast in what someone else has already done.
2Co 10:17 But "he who boasts, let him boast in the Lord."
2Co 10:18 For it isn't he who commends himself who is approved, but whom the Lord commends. 

 
The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.

daring towards some who think of us as walking according to flesh.

confidence with which I reckon to be bold against certain reckoning us as
walking according to the flesh;

Do ye look at what concerns appearance? If any one has confidence in himself that he is of
Christ, let him think this again in himself, that even as he [is] of Christ, so also [are] we.

this let him reckon again from himself, that according as he is Christ`s, so also
we [are] Christ`s;

themselves. But they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing
themselves with themselves, are without understanding.

themselves; but these, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves
with themselves, are not intelligent.

commending themselves, but they, among themselves measuring themselves, and
comparing themselves with themselves, are not wise,

the God of measure has apportioned to us, to reach to you also.
and we in regard to the unmeasured things will not boast ourselves, but after the
measure of the line that the God of measure did appoint to us -- to reach even unto you;

for not as not reaching to you do we stretch ourselves overmuch, for even unto you
did we come in the good news of the Christ,

not boasting beyond proper limits in other men`s labors, but having hope that as your faith grows, we will be magnified in you according to our boundaries to abundance,
not boasting out of measure in other people`s labours, but having hope, your faith
increasing, to be enlarged amongst you, according to our rule, yet more abundantly
not boasting of the things not measured, in other men`s labours, and having hope
-- your faith increasing -- in you to be enlarged, according to our line -- into
abundance,
2 Corinthians 10 16
so as to preach the gospel even to the parts beyond you, not to boast in what someone else has already done.
to announce the glad tidings to that [which is] beyond you, not to be boasting in
another`s rule of things made ready to hand.
in the [places] beyond you to proclaim good news, not in another`s line in regard
to the things made ready, to boast;
2 Corinthians 10 17
But "he who boasts, let him boast in the Lord."
But he that boasts, let him boast in the Lord.
and he who is boasting -- in the Lord let him boast;
2 Corinthians 10 18
For it isn`t he who commends himself who is approved, but whom the Lord commends.
For not *he* that commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.
for not he who is commending himself is approved, but he whom the Lord doth
commend.
