Mabel is 5!

October is all about birthdays. We started it all off with Mabel who turned 5. It's an exciting year for Mabel. She's learning to read and learning to swim. She loves pigs and armadillos, fancy dresses, headbands and pink. She wanted an old-fashioned girl birthday so I got my mom to send me her 1970s Holly Hobbie cake pans, which were perfect.

 And of course, she needed an old-fashioned costume.

For her birthday excursion, she wanted to go to the Yankee Candle megastore. She insisted, "It's not just a Christmas shopping place. It's an adventure, full of exciting things." We didn't actually buy any candles, but we did take advantage of the photo ops and enjoyed the castle, the indoor snow, and the animatronic oom-pa band.

THE BIBLE IS THE SOURCE FOR TRUTH!

If you are searching for the truth about God and His plan for mankind, where should you look? What is the only trustworthy source to find God's truth? Would it be creed books, Bible commentaries and a variety of other written works of men?

THE HOLY BIBLE IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH!

Jeremiah 30:1-2 This word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 "Thus says the Lord, saying, the God of Israel, 'Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book.

The Lord did not tell Jeremiah to check with Billy Graham, Joesph Smith Jr., Gandhi or Saint Augustine and write down their words.


Exodus 24:3-4 Then Moses came and recounted to the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the Lord has spoken we will do!" 4 Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord.......


Moses did not write down everything that John Wesley, Brigham Young, and Buddha had said.


Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God!"


Jesus said live by every word that comes from God. He did say say live by every word that comes from Pope Benedict XVI, Martin Luther, and Jerry Falwell.


Luke 10:25-26 And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying. "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life ?" 26 And He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?"


Jesus did not answer the lawyer by asking him "how does what is written by Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa and Benny Hin read to you?"


Acts 17:2-3 And according to Paul's custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from Scriptures, explaining and giving evidence that Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."


The apostle Paul did not reason from the writings of Max Lucado, Pope John Paul II and John Calvin.


John 20:30-31 Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.


The writings of John McAthur, Jack Van Impe, Bill Hybels and Charles Swindoll were not written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ.


2 Peter 3:15-16 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do the rest of the Scriptures...


Peter said Paul's letters were by wisdom from God. Paul's letters were Scriptures.


Where does Peter say creed books, catechisms, Bible commentaries, books about the Bible, and other writings of men are Scriptures?


THE BIBLE IS THE ONLY TRUSTWORTHY SOURCE FOR GOD'S TRUTH!
