Wow--what a crazy busy Christmas this has been. I think I'm going to plan on something a little quieter next year!

Kevin and I just finished our fifth week of doing our new radio show Night Watch on KKMS AM980--tonight was wonderful--great guests and callers. The occult is real and it affects people's lives...talking about it from God's perspective is a good thing. The show will be archived on this week. Watch our What's New page for info.

I am now tweeting on Twitter (JillMartinRiche) so come on over and say hello! Also will be expanding our YouTube account (WalterMartinDotCom) to include a weekly video blog. I will not hold back on this one--so get ready for some fireworks. First up...well, you'll have to check out YouTube to find out. Should be up by January 14.

One more thing, last but not least: I was reading my Bible the other day and this verse just stood out: "Do not be overly righteous, Nor be overly wise: Why should you destroy yourself?" Eccl. 7:16

So how is it we can destroy ourselves by being overly righteous or wise? Maybe by thinking we can do no wrong and everyone else is always at fault? Food for thought....

I believe the comment is meant to be taken "don't be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good... too set apart to dirty our hands helping others... too holy to be in the world while endeavoring not to be of the world.

The Jewish Pharisees come to mind (especially in the Good Samaritan parable). Or in our own recent history the unwillingness of the Church to take up the cause of the downtrodden female (so the feminists did and look where we are today).

In the time of our founding fathers a legal acronym was used so that the word "fornicate" would not be used in Christian America's legal system. A word that by the way appears in the Bible no less than 44 times.

That acronym, incidentally, is the far more vulgar "f-bomb."

This is rather the point. Man interferes even with the best of intentions, and when he does interfere it always ends up worse.

The Bible says do not add to nor subtract from God's word / commands in all three major divisions of scripture:
the law (Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32),
the prophets (Revelation 22:18-19),
and the writings (Proverbs 30:5-6).

Will we ever learn?
