Sunday Scripture — I Thessalonians 4:1-7

Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

  1. Personally, I've always found Luke 9:27 more enlightening: “But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.”

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't the disciples all been dead and buried now, going on 2,000 years? And still no Kingdom Come. So was he lying, or is that whole “omniscience” thing just a bunch of hooey? And either way, how can you trust anything he said? At the very least, it was false prophecy–and aren't they the dudes you're supposed to stone, not worship?
