THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A little boy of 5 was spending the weekend with his grandmother.
He decided to show his love for her one morning by bringing her coffee to the bed.
The coffee was only lukewarm, and had grounds floating on top.
But grandmother sipped it because it was given in love.
Then she noticed a green soldier in the bottom of the cup.
When she asked why, the boy replied, "Grandmother, don't you know 'the best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup'?"
Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
The real truth is the Word of God.
The Word of God is real truth.
The Word of God is "the power of God" to teach us truth so that we do not "err."
Peter said that "scoffers" "willingly are ignorant" of the fact that
God formed the heavens and the world by His "Word." (See 2Peter 3:3-5)
There is so much error in the world!
And most of it is because people "willingly are ignorant" of the Truth!
It's amazing what we put in our minds everyday.
Watching television and movies, and reading magazines, we supply our minds with filth from every corner.
Once I read a movie review that had this line: "..the plot moves rapidly down the sewer."
Today, many commercials express the theme that nothing can be sold without sex.
Other commercials express the theme that one cannot have fun without alcoholic beverages.
Violence and sexual promiscuity are the very basis for most television shows and movies today.
The world intends to pollute our minds with "grounds" and "soldiers" in our cups!
Learn the Word of God!
It will keep you from "err!"
