Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

"Forget what you were taught. Don't trust what you're taught about the Bible, just dig into it yourself." - Candy, Keeping the Home


"You are not such wiseacres as to think or say that you can expound the Scripture without the assistance from the works of divine and learned men who have labored before you in the field of exposition . . . . It seems odd that certain men who talk so much of what the Holy Spirit reveals to themselves, should think so little of what he has revealed to others." - Rev. C. H. Spurgeon, to his students (Commenting and Commentaries)

2 Peter 3:16

and

Acts 8:30-35

I enjoy Candy's blog and glean much good from it, but there are times when she says something like that and I just want to...something. For someone with such love of studying Scripture you'd think she'd pay a bit more attention to warnings against things like that.

I must admit I have learned a great deal as a result of reading Candy's blog...but not always from her blog.... Plus, I did make an HMB! :-)

Reminding someone of the law is sometimes as necessary as sharing the gospel. We all jump the curb now and then.
