Today’s thought “Qualities and feasts of people” (December 14)

Today’s thought “A serious warning for teachers” (December 09)

Did you notice that James 3 begins with a pretty serious warning, telling that teachers will incur a stricter judgment.

Today’s thought “They would not believe it” (August 21)

Today we finished reading the Gospel of Mark. One needs to compare all the Gospels to appreciate the events after Christ rose from the dead.

Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)

Yesterday we mentioned the difficulties that we, Christadelphians, but also the Jeshuaists and Jews may experience in Belgium and France, and how we must always respond positively to that resistance. We must, above all, avoid the negativeness towards us through our positive, loving attitude. As Christadelphians, like Jeshuaists, are real Christians, or followers of Christ… Read More Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)

His friends might be the voice of the people. Job warns them that when they die, wisdom will die with them. (Job 12:1-2) In the previous… Read More Today’s thought “Not by man but With God is the sum total of all wisdom and of all power” (December 10)

Today’s thought “Teachers will be judged with greater strictness than others” (December 09)

James 3 Preaching and teaching the Word of God is a serious “job”.
