Virtue and Its Impostors

Three things confuse a Christian;
Yeah, four confound any man.

Unbelief masquerading as wisdom,
Enthusiasm presenting itself as faith,

Fear pretending to be patience,
and permissiveness claiming to be love.

Whoisjim,
Driving in to the church this morning, praying about a situation, these were the thoughts that came to mind. Can you tell that Proverbs and Ecclesiastes are among my favorite books? :-) I'm afraid it's not very original.

Yes, it sounds a lot like the Bible. I like it!

Rodney said...

Wow that is deep! I like proverb and Ecc, also. So will we be seeing a Anyabwile study bible in the future?!

FellowElder said...

Rodney,
No, you won't be seeing an "Anyabwile study Bible" in the future :-). I'm pleased to get my sermons done each week! :-)
