What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
How does a Christian combat the pernicious ways of social media and fake news, the right hand of America's leftist regime? False teachers privily bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, but Peter's second epistle is resolute that through the knowledge of God, and Jesus our Lord we have all things that pertain unto life and godliness (2Pet 2:1-3, 1:1-11). Via Noah Webster's 1828 assistance Peter says to add to your “substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” virtue; and to “Strength; that substance or quality of physical bodies, by which they act and produce effects on other bodies” knowledge; And to “ A clear and certain perception of that which exists, or of truth and fact” temperance; and to “Moderation; particularly, habitual moderation in regard to the indulgence of the natural appetites and passions; Patience; calmness; sedateness; moderation of passion” patience; and to “The suffering of afflictions, pain, toil, calamity, provocation or other evil, with a calm, unruffled temper; ... without murmuring or fretfulness; i.e. The act or quality of waiting long for justice or expected good without discontent” godliness; And to “a careful observance of the laws of God and performance of religious duties, proceeding from love and reverence for the divine character and commands” add brotherly kindness; and to “ Good will; benevolence; that temper or disposition which delights in contributing to the happiness of others” add charity. And the Bible itself defines charity even better than Noah (1Cor 13). Peter goes on to say that “if these things be in you and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Don't lack here, “for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall” (1:9-10). May God Bless your Memorial Day.
