Have you ever stubbed your toe? Or, hit your thumb with a hammer? Maybe you burned yourself playing with fire? When you do so, you feel an immediate, unpleasant sensation. It’s that little thing we call pain. This helps you know that something is physically wrong. A good conscience is a little like that. When you do something morally or ethically wrong, a good conscience will cause you a certain amount of moral or ethical pain. . . .

Digital Library

The Mt. Vernon Church of Christ is building a digital library to aid serious Bible students in their study.  When possible, we will be adding new volumes.  We are grateful to the many sources from which we draw these volumes for making these available.  We take no credit for them ourselves.  We do not necesarrily endorse everything in every volume.  We simply provide them as aids to Bible study.  This week:

 

Systematic Theology (I) - A. H. Strong

No man should go to the Bible, or the God of the Bible, to teach him what man is, or what he should be; but he should go to the Bible to learn what he is, what he ought to be, and what he ultimately shall be.  He should not go to the Bible to show what it should teach, but to learn what it does teach, for to this we shall all come in the end, whether it is congenial with our desires or not. We intend, therefore, to maintain it as it is, whether the number in favor of it is small or great. We intend to maintain the old distinction between saint and sinner, vice and virtue, good and bad, with the same meaning attached to them, regardless of all consequences. We shall speak of men being saved and lost, happy and miserable, justified and condemned with the same ideas attached to the terms as heretofore, and sustained by all sound rules of interpretation, whether it shall be considered sense or foolishness. . . .

Golden Thought

Sweet shall be your rest if your heart does not reproach you.
- Thomas a Kempis

There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience.
- French Proverb

REFLECTION

I looked into a mirror
And saw myself so clear
Every little blemish
Was made now to appear.

My hair a bit disheveled,
Some dirt upon my brow.
A smudge or two upon my face
Was made apparent now.

I took a little water
And washed my hands and face
I looked again into the glass
And saw everything in place

I looked into the Bible
And saw myself so clear
Every little failure
Was made now to appear.

My life was out of order
There was sin upon my soul
God's word made me understand
How I came to stoop so low

So I took a little water
And washed away my sin
Happy now, I can rejoice
For my life is whole again.



Eric L. Padgett - Oct. 30, 2019

Bible Question of the Week

How did Paul exercise himself?

LAST WEEK'S QUESTION AND ANSWER
Besides being just and loving mercy, what else does the Lord require of us?
