The Modern Malady of Mockery

Mockery has been around throughout mankind’s history, but in recent times it seems to have become increasingly common to mock competitors, public personalities, and authority figures—and even God, Christ, the Bible, and religion in general. The Bible warns that mockers sit “in the seat of the scornful” (Psalm 1:1).

The Narrow Path

An “ism” is a philosophy, social or political ideology, movement, or religion. The list of philosophies and religions is exhaustive, leaving the distinct impression that mankind is utterly dazed and confused about what life's purpose is, which choices and actions are right and which are wrong, and whether there is a God. What is your "ism?" Whose "ism" is the correct one?

The Sins of Prejudice, Partiality, and Partisanship

The Sins of Prejudice, Partiality, and Partisanship

The Bible shows the difference between unjustified judgment and true discernment.

The Sins of Prejudice, Partiality, and Partisanship

These three words—prejudice, partiality, and partisanship—are related terms that describe a biased and negative mindset and approach towards another person. The usual result is intolerance of and hostility towards that person.

In this context, prejudice is a strong dislike of someone solely based on preconceived notions or assumptions about race, ethnicity, age, sex, religion, or other categories. It can also be a strong preference, favoritism, or showing partiality for someone. Partisanship is one-sided sectarianism or factionalism.

Read It for What It Really Says

Read It for What It Really Says

Do we read what the Bible says, or what we think it says?

People misread things all the time. Instructions say, “Do this,” but people read, “Do that,” because they are distracted, they have their mind on something else, or they simply misread the instruction for what they think it says instead of what it really says.
