Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    How Slow Is Your Belly?

    By Pastor Ricky Kurth

    “The Cretians are… slow bellies” (Titus 1:12)

    “Slow bellies” is a figure of speech that is generally taken to mean lazy gluttons, and that could be. But the Greek word for “belly” is usually translated “womb” by our KJV translators, and the word for “slow” is usually translated barren. And the Bible says that “the barren womb” is “never satisfied” (Pr. 30:15). Women who long to have children and cannot have them are often never satisfied with any substitutes.

    So in calling the Cretians “slow bellies,” it is possible that the Bible is saying they were never satisfied, that they were people who always desired more, who always wanted what they couldn’t have. The Bible calls that covetousness, and the law of Moses forbad it:

    “Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour’s wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour’s house, his field… or any thing that is thy neighbour’s” (Deuteronomy 5:21).

    This was probably the verse that the “vain talkers… of the circumcision” were quoting to Titus (Tit. 1:10), the men who were like those who had “turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law” (I Tim. 1:6,7). Men who teach the law believe that the only way to help God’s people overcome covetousness is to put them under the law that prohibited covetousness.

    But Paul says “we are not under the law, but under grace” (Rom. 6:15). The law cursed all who could not keep it perfectly (Gal. 3:10; James 2:10,11), and we can’t do that any better now than we could before we were saved!

    But you don’t need the law to help someone who is struggling with covetousness, for grace forbids this sin just as surely (Eph. 5:3). That’s why Paul agreed that the Cretians were slow bellies, but prescribed a different remedy for their covetousness:

    “This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith” (Titus 1:13).

    Rather than tell Titus to remind the Cretians that the law says “thou shalt not covet” (Ex. 20:17), Paul told him to rebuke them to “be sound in the faith.” And he defined what it means to be sound in the faith when he told Timothy,

    “Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me…” (II Timothy 1:13).

    Being sound in the faith means to hold fast the form of sound words that we’ve heard from Paul. He’s the apostle to whom the Lord gave “the dispensation of the grace of God” to give to us (Eph. 3:1,2). So in the dispensation of grace, being sound in the faith means being Pauline! Being unsound in the faith means anything “that is contrary to sound doctrine; according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God” which Paul says was “committed to my trust” (I Tim. 1:10,11).

    That means if you’re not Pauline in your theology, you’re not being Biblical! As the editor of the Scofield Reference Bible wrote about Paul, “in his writings alone we find the doctrine, position, walk, and destiny of the church” (Page 1252).

    So if you’re a covetous slow belly, don’t look to the law for help, look to Paul’s epistles! He’s the one who went on to tell Titus,

    “…the grace of God… hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world” (Titus 2:11,112).

    The way to deal with ungodliness like covetousness is to learn more about God’s grace, not beat yourself up with the law!

    Titus 1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

    Pr 30:15 The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:
    16 The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.

    Deuteronomy 5:21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour’s wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour’s house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

    Titus 1:10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

    1 Timothy 1:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
    7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

    Romans 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

    Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

    James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
    11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

    Ephesians 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

    Titus 1:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

    Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

    2 Timothy 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

    Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
    2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

    1 Timothy 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
    11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

    Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
    12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

So if you’re a covetous slow belly, don’t look to the law for help, look to Paul’s epistles!”

      In what is believed to be his final epistle, Paul reminded Timothy of the value of abiding in things such as “the sacred writings” known by Timothy from childhood (cf. 2 Timothy 3:14-15). Near the end of his ministry, Paul affirms their “being able to make you wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus”.

      It is notable that Paul then spoke of doctrine — variously translated as teaching or instruction (Gr. didaskalian, cf. Romans 15:4, Titus 2:10). Rather than the focus being turned to things Pauline alone for doctrine etc. per the posting’s assertions above, Paul again pointed not to himself alone, but beyond his own words to further writings where salvation as well as instruction / doctrine and more can be found:

      “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for instruction (Gr. didaskalian), for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, having been fully equipped toward every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

    Prophylaxis COVID-19 Management Protocol
    (updated 4-15-2020)

    While there is very limited data (and none specific for COVID-19), the following “cocktail” may have a role in the prevention/mitigation of COVID-19 disease. While there is no high level evidence that this cocktail is effective; it is cheap, safe and widely available.

    Vitamin C 500 mg BID* and Quercetin 250-500 mg BID*

    Zinc 75-100 mg/day (acetate, gluconate or picolinate). Zinc lozenges are preferred.
    After 1-2 months, reduce the dose to 30-50 mg/day.

    Melatonin (slow release): Begin with 0.3mg and increase as tolerated to 1-2 mg at night

    Vitamin D3 1000-4000 u/day (optimal dose unknown)

    *BID means twice (two times) a day.

    As bad as the virus is I think an even worse plague is the number of ‘experts’ who’re infecting us.

    I’m listening to ‘experts’ on the tee-vee telling me how many tests a day we need to ‘safely’ open the country up – so far the ‘experts’ range in the guesstimations from 150,000 to 5 million a day. At the same time I’m looking at studies put out by well known ‘name’ universities on the ‘dangers’ of a spike in viral infections due to a premature reopening. The guesstimations run from a few million to a sizable portion of the country BUT all have, to one degree or another, a statement that unseen circumstances can change the numbers heavily in one degree or another. We pay huge amounts to these universities for these studies when we could get a COVID-displaced tea leaf reader to do the same thing for pocket change.

      ICYMI – FYI – Vitamin D is necessary for the proper functioning of your immune system It has both anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory properties and is crucial for the activation of immune system defenses (By modulating the antiviral immune response). In humans, vitamin D is obtained from the diet or it is synthesized in the skin after exposure to UV B light. In addition enveloped single stranded RNA viruses tend to get damaged, ( particularly nucleic acids ) by heat, humidity, and UV light relatively easy within minutes to an hour. These weakened (attenuated ) viruses become natural vaccines ( naturally acquired herd immunity ).

        I would say a large part of that ‘encouragement’ comes from bureaucrats who, lacking any real knowledge of the threat other than that they get from advisors, resort to the ‘get the sheep back into their pens’ option. Of course they largely use ‘experts’ who can provide them with an acceptable dribble of knowledge they can easily digest and won’t hurt their polling numbers. Note they always leave the option open to blame the people for any failures, the old ‘if you’d just have listened to me’ assignation of blame.

        We’re also surrounded with medical experts who have never practiced medicine and (my local favorite) each local TV channel’s resident celebrity doctor who dispenses guilt, mild fear, chastisement and dilute vanilla advice.

        The vitamin/supplement regimen above above is in line with my regular one, I’ve always been of a mind that supplementation can’t hurt when done responsibly. My doctor tests for vitamins B and A, I found her after doing research on my diabetes, and not only wholey agrees with my regimen but upped my A to 5000 IU a day and found me a high-dose bioactive B12 mixture to boot. She’s a keeper, I’ve had other doc’s question the amounts but not dare question her. That tells me lots.

        In the end it comes down to whom do you trust with your life?

    If Biden won with her on the ticket (Anything is possible with control of our future in the hands of a corrupt media, the lawless Deep State led by the equally lawless DNC.), it would be an interesting wager to see who would die first. Biden has about 6 to 12 months and Stacy “I’m as big as an Abrams tank” Abrams has “The Sugars”. When she steps on a scale, it reads out, “To Be Continued”.

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the risen Lord Jesus:

    1. How He appeared to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, and how they did not recognise Him.
    2. How their hearts burned within them while He spoke with them, and how they only knew Him in the blessing and breaking of bread.
    3. How the Lord disappeared suddenly from their sight.

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in the USA and was a former prisoner at Dachau).

    A nugget for the times of today.
    Ever hear a person talk and you get a catch or twinge in your spirit? They sound nice but something Is not aligned? Well, trust yourself (by the way that’s how you get more intuition trusting yourself in those matters) the person most likely is in a willful act of sin and their intentions are deceptive most likely to themselves also, that’s why the Holy Spirit is so diligent when you accept Jesus. It’s the ‘separation’ Jesus died to repair and Satan destroys people with.
    Then there is a person who is satanic. They embrace these deceptions as power, and use them willfully as they become more saturated in evil. And they may not consider themselves a Satan worshipper.
    Then there are the true worshippers of Satan who act out rituals to bring his essence into our world they are most likely the harder to discern because they flow in that evil with intent.
    Satan is the father of lies, keep that in mind, just as God only speaks truth as his word is. Jesus could not lie and all his words were with intent to bring God into this world.
    Satan can not tell truth his intent separates him from truth or God.

    So when we read “the very elect will be deceived” it means the person will be of Satan in every way and most cannot discern his intent. It is not stated that way in genesis but Satan deceived Eve in a way that was undetected by her in appearance and words.
    It’s a tool that can be of use.

    Send Thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicians and preserve those who are healthy.

    Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify Thy most honorable and majestic Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.

    Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
