“It is for their perpetual joy that in Christ Jesus ‘are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge,’ Col. 2:3. Admirable is the scheme, devised in fathomless love and immeasurable wisdom, whereby our resources are in another and not in ourselves. ‘For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell,’ Col … Continue reading A Never Failing Well-Spring
(Edward Payson, 1783-1827) "He who says he abides in Christ, ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked." 1 John 2:6 It was highly important and desirable that the Lord Jesus should not only describe Christianity in His discourses, but exemplify it in His life and conduct. In Him, we see pure and … Continue reading Living as Christ Lived

JOHN XIV. 4—11.
“And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
“Thomas saith unto Him, Lord, we know not whither Thou goest; and how can we know the way?

J. S. Bach / O Sacred Head, Now Wounded – Christian Hymn with Lyrics ( Classical Music / Choir )
Christian Hymns playlist: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list…
The hymn is based on a long medieval Latin poem, Salve mundi salutare, with stanzas addressing the various parts of Christ’s body hanging on the Cross. The last part of the poem, from which the hymn is taken, is addressed to Christ’s head, and begins “Salve caput cruentatum.” The poem is often attributed to Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153), but it first appears in the 14th century.
The last part of the poem was translated into German by the prolific Lutheran hymnist Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676). The German hymn begins, “O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden.
The hymn was first translated into English in 1752 by John Gambold (1711-1771), an Anglican vicar in Oxfordshire. His translation begins, “O Head so full of bruises.” In 1830 a new translation…

It has come to my attention as of late that Christians, so-called biblically saved Christians, are accepting and embracing what can be termed as Theistic Evolution. A simple definition of this term can be said like this: God used evolution to create everything. Why is this dangerous? Because if you embrace evolution at all, you … Continue reading The New Cancer Eating the Bride

Philpot (1869) To All Who Seek God
("Solitude Sweetened" by James Meikle, 1730-1799) Now that I am a father, and know the affection of a parent--would I not defend from every danger--would I not bestow every truly good thing--would I not implore every blessing--on my tender children? Would I not nourish their infant state--correct and educate their childhood--inspect, reprove, and admonish them … Continue reading Monsters of Cruelty!
