Please NOTE that we derive our English word "SCANDALIZE" from this Greek word-"SKAN-DAL-ID'-ZO!"
And sadly, We Americans and CHRISTIANS too, LOVE a good scandal!!!
HERE COME THE JUDGE:
I often think of the AGAIN sad TRUTH:
"A FRIEND DOES NOT NEED OR REQUIRE ANY EXPLANATION AND AN ENEMY WILL NOT BELIEVE OR DESERVE ANY EXPLANATION!!!"
Much of today's "news" may not ever be truly discerned correctly as true or false until that great Day of Judgement!!
OUR Bible correctly sums this FACT up:
Proverbs 20:6 (KJV)
6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
Even Pilate, a learned and well seasoned POLITICIAN cried out in exasperation:
John 18:38 (KJV)
38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
WHAT IS TRUTH!!??
"According" to one "media/news" site over 90% of the "news" we read, hear, and see daily is CONTROLLED by 6 corporations and 232 media executives!!!
SIX CORPORATIONS AND 232 MEDIA EXECUTIVES!!!????
I remember that BLESSED day exactly, MAY 7,2014-the DAY God DELIVERED me from NIGHTLY watching the Talking Heads" on prime time TV!
I spent last night watching NETFLIX-the show-"MOUNTAIN MEN."
Some of US today are REJOICING and sadly, some of US today are HURTING:
1 Corinthians 12:26 (KJV)
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
ALL of us would and do prefer the LATTER state as opposed to the FORMER state of being:
"ONE MEMBER SUFFER/ONE MEMBER HONORED!"
But, the TRUTH is, WE MUST "suffer with" and "rejoice with" both states of being!!!
OUR Bible wisely instructs US to be diligent to do both "SUFFER WITH/REJOICE WITH"
2 Corinthians 11:28 (KJV)
28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
"THE CARE OF ALL THE CHURCHES!"
And YES, dear brothers and sisters-"CARE MEANS CARE!"
WE MUST "CARE" ONE FOR ANOTHER!!!
And YES, WE ALL prefer the REJOICING part better!!
But; look among ourselves-there are hurting people EVERYWHERE!!!
1 Corinthians 4:5 (KJV)
5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
TODAY, may each of US attempt "TO JUDGE NOTHING BEFORE THE TIME, UNTIL THE LORD COME!!!!!!!!!"
God and God ALONE will RIGHTLY "BRING TO LIGHT THE HIDDEN THINGS OF DARKNESS, AND WILL MAKE MANIFEST THE COUNSELS OF THE HEART!"
TO GOD ALONE BE ALL THE GLORY, WISDOM AND HONOR!!
"JUDGE NOTHING BEFORE THE TIME!"
GOD BLESS YOU!
