Old Line Truths #4

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began1"          Titus 1:2

I once heard someone make the comment "if all I had was a hope, I wouldn't have much at all." This comment was made in regards to the precious hope that all Old Line Primitive Baptist speak {more}

By Elder Ariel West
The Primitive Baptist, 1939
  The devil always wants to start something new and try to put a Bible dress on it.  Old Baptists (so-called) who want a Sunday School, want to call it Bible class, study, or something else.  But it is the same devil's baby, and regardless of the kind of dress you put on it, it still has the same face and motives.  It is prompted by the spirit of evil. 
   If we continue in the old paths of salvation by grace and Bible practices, peace abounds; but alas, trouble will always start over new measures. 
   If you have got to have the world, go where the world is.  It is asking for you.  But we are not wanting the world, and if there are some members we can't get without conforming to the world, we are better off without them.

"When I am weak, then am I strong" (II Cor. 12:10).
  By Elder John R. Daily
Zion's Advocate, 1905 
    Here is a singular paradox, but it is not fanciful.  It is the actual experience of a sober-minded man, a wise logician.  Many think themselves strong who are really weak.  They are weak but don't know it.  Others feel their weakness and receive strength.  They know they are weak, and this knowledge of their weakness brings humility and contrition.  These are weak in themselves, but strong in the Lord.  That is the key to the paradox.  Paul's strength was made perfect in weakness, because the grace of God was declared to be sufficient for him.  That is it exactly.  David said, "The Lord is my light and the strength of my life."  His weakness was repeatedly proved, yet he said, "I will not fear what man can do unto me."  It has always been so.  The mighty are confounded by things that are weak, and things that are, are brought to nothing by things that are not.  There is no glory to mortals in this view of the matter.  It cuts the main root of human pride, and leaves the stalk to die.
