Bible Verse of the Day
Bible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

Romans 12:1 
1 "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."

Our bodies are the temple of God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). With that said, we should consume food according to the law of our Father, not things He disapproves of (Leviticus 11:7-11). 

15 Signs That We Live During A Time Of Rampant Government Paranoia

(Source: Economic Collapse Blog) - How does it feel to live under a government that is getting even more paranoid with each passing day?  Yes, we live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, but that is no excuse for how ultra-paranoid the federal government has become.  Today, every single one of us is viewed as a “potential threat” by the government.

As a result, the government feels the need to intercept our emails, record our phone calls and track our expenditures.  But they aren’t just spying on individuals.  The government keeps tabs on thousands of organizations all over the planet, it spies on our enemies and our allies, and it even spies on itself.  The American people are told that the emerging Big Brother police state is for our safety, but the truth is that it isn’t there to protect us.  It is there to protect them.

Bible Verse of the Day - 1 Peter 1:24-25

Bible Verse of the Day
Bible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

1 Peter 1:24 
"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:"

The point is the grass and flower grow and bloom, but that is their peak. They then wither away and die and eventually turn into nothing but dust and they become unrecognizable. This is an analogy for mankind. We grow in the same fashion and then at a point in our lives we start to show age and then our skin starts to wrinkle and eventually we will die just as that flower. But this does not have to be our end...

Bible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

Hebrews 4:12  
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

This verse goes very deep. We can read of this twoedged sword in Revelation 1:16. What does this sword do? 

Law Lets I.R.S. Seize Accounts on Suspicion, No Crime Required

Bible Verse of the Day
Bible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

2 Timothy 3:16
16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"  
17 "That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

Did it say man's words are profitable for doctrine, reproof and correction? Did it say we listen to the doctrines of churches? Did it say we do whatever our pastors and churches ask of us and question nothing?
