      Romans 12:21 English Standard Version (ESV)
      21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
      He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

        i appreciate the sentiment, but even Jesus recognized the futility of preaching the Good Word where it was not welcomed

          He could do no miracles in Nazareth because of un-belief. It didn't stop Him from preaching. Sodom and Gomorrah would have repented if they heard Him preach. His hometown neighbors just hardened their hearts against Him.

            Good points - I was thinking more of his instructions to the apostles - Matthew 10:14

              Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

              ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

              Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

                In my devotions:

                1Co 8:1b We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.



                1Co 8:2 And if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know (guilty at times).


                1Co 8:3 But if any one loves God, he has been known of (and by) God.
