We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. 2 Corinthians 10:4 NLT
The Devil knows your name but calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but calls you by your name. [Unknown]
“There is no neutral ground in the universe. Every square inch, every split-second is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan” … C.S.Lewis
We hear a lot about the media’s bias on choosing which news to withhold and which to share with the public. Assuredly, their decision is often based on their political leaning. Even conservative journalists may choice not to reveal the “whole” truth.
The Bible is truly “fair and balanced” in telling the truth. It shares “the good, the bad, and the ugly” truth about people’s lives. David’s sexual ‘indiscretion’ was not excluded. 2 Samuel 11. Even the Apostle Paul’s fallout with co-worker Barnabus is recorded in Acts 15:36-41 And then there is Peter’s denial of Christ. John 18:15-27
So why share the “ugly” side of people’s lives? The Bible wanted everyone to know that failure doesn’t have to be final. Proverbs 24:16 says, “for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,…” Even the best of us have failed; “Everyone has sinned. No one measures up to God’s glory. Romans 3:23
“Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.” C.S. Lewis
