The Scriptures

Either the Bible will keep you away from sin, or sin will keep you away from the Bible.

[C.S. Lewis]

Psalm 119:158-160 … I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word. Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness. Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Matthew 4:3-4 … And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Mark 12:24 … And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?

Proverbs 30:5 … Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. ♥
