    Thank you so much, Tiger Lily, for keeping this thread going. When I need a lift, I know where to go to be encouraged - this very thread! All your hard work is such a blessing, and I am sure that the Lord is so very pleased!
    Luke 12:27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    Testing for truth

    -It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry. THOMAS PAINE

    On truth
    1 Thes 5:21-22 Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.
    2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
    1 John 4:1-3 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
    Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
    Titus 1:1-3 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness— 2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, 3 and which now at his appointed season he has brought to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior,
    John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    John 8:31-32 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
    2 Tim 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
    1 John 5:9-12 We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his son. Anyone who believes in the son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
    John 17:17 “Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”


    On those who teach error
    Matt 7:15-16b “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. . . . ”
    Jude 1:4 For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
    Rom 1:18-20 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
    John 8:44 "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
    2 Cor 11:13-15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
    1 John 2:22-23 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

    Stubborn people who refuse to listen

    -To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead. THOMAS PAINE
    -You can lead a buffalo anywhere it wants to go. Common saying

    Is 42:20 “You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen.”
    Ezek 12:2 “Son of man, you are living among a rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.”
    2 Tim 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
    Zec 7:11 “But they refused to pay attention; stubbornly they turned their backs and stopped up their ears.”
    Jer 7:24 “‘But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward.’”
    Prov 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
    Is 30:15b . . . “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.”
    Rom 2:4-5 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance? But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.
    2 Cor 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
    2 Pet 2:10-12 This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;11 yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.12 But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.

    Plain talking for effective communication

    -Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people. WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
    -Speak properly, and in as few words as you can, but always plainly; for the end of speech is not ostentation, but to be understood. WILLIAM PENN
    -Broadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all. SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL

    Eccl 6:11 The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?
    Prov 15:28a The heart of the righteous weighs its answers . . .
    Prov 15:2a The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright . . .
    Prov 17:27 A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.
    Prov 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
    1 Cor 9:19-23 Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
    Deut 32:2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
    1 Pet 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
    1 Thes 5:14b . . . encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
    Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
    1 Cor 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
    1 Cor 16:14 Do everything in love.
    Phil 4:5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
