Paul is Called A “babbler”

Acts 17:18 (KJB)   Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.

To many lost ancient people, the words and actions of Paul seemed strange.  They even called him a “babbler” because his words seemed “out of this world” to their spiritually shuttered ...

2 Timothy 2:22 (KJB)   Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Timothy, Paul’s friend and brother in Christ was a young respectable man.  The Bible tells us his mother Lois and his grandma Eunice (2 Timothy 1:5) raised Timothy up in great faith in God.

Paul was using a “teachable moment” with Timothy for highlighting the importance of fleeing wicked lusts which naturally rage ...

Paul’s Benediction Flattered God

1 Timothy 1:17 (KJB)   Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Paul, who considered himself the worst sinner, had nothing but a mouthful of great descriptive words for the purpose of spilling out great honor and glory for God.  Paul, for one, should have a great and intimate spiritual understanding of who God is and what He can and will do in changing ...

Will You Profit or Burn

Philippians 1:21 (KJB)   For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Christians should have a much different view of both life and death.

Paul was inspired of God to record in this scripture verse that living was about Christ and to die was to spiritually gain.

The natural man cannot possibly understand how he can profit in the moment of his death.  In fact, for many people death is perhaps considered quite a ...

Spiritual Angst

Acts 17:16 (KJB)   Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

Living a Christian life and actively preaching about God to others is not a life of ease and luxury.  It can be heart rending and downright spiritually brutal at times.

The Bible tells us that Paul was stirred in his heart as he walked through the city of Athens.  He was moved to ...

Unity in Christ

Ephesians 4:4-6 (KJB)   There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Unity in the church is the main thought at work these verses.  God inspired Paul to record a series of “one’s” for use in developing and maintaining godly servants and a ...
