• Modesty…the holy and the profane

    Modesty…the holy and the profane

    We recently received a comment on an article we posted on modesty. This article was written by an anonymous author. It gave his point of view on modesty. This prompted us to write our understanding of what is written in the Word on modesty, so here it is. This article is not only about modesty, but also about the holy and the profane; the set apart and the common. We live in a time where moral values have become unimportant and people, for the most part, live for self. Modesty is not something that is considered in worldly circles, on the contrary; it is regularly laughed at. Being immodestly dressed is even considered trendy. The profane is elevated and set apartness is scoffed at. It is one of the signs of the times we live in. Immodesty is one of the devices Satan uses to destroy moral values, marriages and our youth. In this study, we shall learn about set apart modesty. Set apart modesty is about distinguishing between the holy and the profane. This includes dress, behavior and speech.

  • The (not so) pagan roots of words

    The (not so) pagan roots of words

    The community of believers has become a minefield when it comes to the use of certain words and names. The words we use have become our label. If you say a word or name in a certain way, you are judged by some as being this or that. You are immediately categorized as either pure of pagan. Does this application of knowledge really make logical sense aside from the fact that we are not to judge one another? Can we do this? We will, in this post, explore some of these points of contention as examples to show you that we are to be very careful when we repeat things we learn without verifying it first. We shall also look at the name of Yshua in a follow-up post.
