Some of the essays are written in the format of a question or statement followed by scripture for answer or support. 

Some are written with scripture references, which are listed in order in their entirety at the end of the essay.  I often get more out of reading the scriptures as listed on their own than my own commentary… thus, the essays were written as so.

The essays are… just how I see it when I wrote them… I’m still learning… subject to correction… checkout the scriptures in context to verify for yourself.

These essays are subject to updates.  As I continue to study, I come across scripture that makes sense in context of an essay… so… sometimes I’ll add it to an updated version.

17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.  Proverbs 27

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.  Colossians 3

26 What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. (NASB)  1 Corinthians 14

27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. 28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.  Psalm 73:27-28
