We're very glad you're like something little different this week were going to be in the Scripture. Wow a Christian is getting the Scripture. That's probably pretty normal and a lot of them, not as much with ours now and make it happen, but we always talk about God and Jesus and in all the Sunday school topic Scripture we do with insularity to begin with the Scripture that I wanted to talk little bit about how it came about idea went to church couple weeks ago yeah I didn't pass early Saturdays as himself.

I have my buddy Mike set up file 90 Mike are good friends and and that he needed a sermon on the six things the Lord hates, and the seven that are detestable to him from Proverbs 616 through 19 and it really read through this.

I can understand that when he went through it really help me understand just in the beginning that hope first part. It always been confusing to me.

The six things the Lord hates, and the seven that are detestable to him.

And then there are seven things listed lectionary 13 my math six that he hates and seven beneficiary 13 things but there's a seven of them want to help me understand was that there are six but he really does hate that seventh one is kind of that the combination I think I said that word right as time the culmination of all those rolled up into the last thing that's what's detestable to him and so is his word and begin at the end and look and see what's detestable to God and then go back and unpack. What are the things that he hates it leads up to that.

So the thing that he finds detestable is in Proverbs 6 verse 19 is a person who stirs up conflict in the community right doesn't sound that harsh stirred up a little conflict will travel little problems but diversion divisiveness in the in the community that finds that detestable. That's a big statement whenever there is no hit or miss their it's not it's past eight. It's up to ask Eric Tapscott escalator yet since a few they keep working that scale object lesson the first yeah let's talk about the six things in the American kind unpack and as you start getting universe again.

It's their six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him. Haughty eyes to find out that is allowing time, hands that shed innocent blood heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush to evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. So all those other things will stir up conflict in the community right and so that help you understand that. So maybe the first clip is actually one of yours and so you're not going to also live out before we plan so it's actually King Julian from Madagascar are but show now so he's going through and doing impressions of some of his friends about how they feel about him. You'll get an idea as it goes along of what they're trying what he's doing. So this is an example of how you yes will come back and unpack. His mom is all I am sort dominant borrowing I already stop the fun bar dating because I'm jealous of Julian.

Did I mention I was borrowing years, but it's like talking to your Majesty. You are so good thoughts. I am glad you are grows good by year's impression of someone who might lose these amazing creatures by the end of all all night you're still here. I got carried away with my food, honest impressions, but it does beautified to Andy was fun. It will over the top you get the idea. So if you had to describing your words, what haughty eyes mean how would you say that what that means a proud look, I guess you can say it that the people that look down on we all have a tendency to do that somebody below us that that's not as sophisticated as that's not King liking Julian's doing here the somebody that you feel superior to, and you're looking down upon the pretty common what were dealing with a lot of society will in the perception of what's going on these days know really how would you turn the thing would you say the same way. Would you say differently just a question about about how I had actually did quite a study once between the difference between pride and haughty and hot is actually step up to where they they almost have lost sight because of how puffed up they are with that idea being that pride puffs up and and and so you get to this point that unfortunately like Herod that you can get eaten by worms. You know it's common enough you start to think that you're gone and talk about Herod.

Remind yourself about the guilt that I care because of been that way in the past I thought I was best broken computer programmer that will that could walk one of the things that I thought of as Robby was talking about it is that the you can be proud.

But when you're haughty you show it you can be proud without showing it. If you're good if you should okay yeah yeah yeah the thing that dictated ends up being that is the culmination he talked about that.

I think is beautiful and what the pastor was teaching is that you don't think immediately. Like wow this haughty in this is is going to end up in this combination of a destroyed community. It does when you start having somebody that believes that there above other people.

For whatever reason, right when that happens that's going to destroy the community and when they vocalize it is your San Harold it's even that much worse and people just believe it to be true. That's one thing but when they vocalize it like King Julian that here you really realize that's how they feel that's going to cause division is because unit now.

It's deftly not going to cause unity. That's 100 years ago when I was a baby preacher.

This is actually the first sermon that I remember preaching that it wasn't the first sermon. It's the it's the first one that I remember right, and the reason I did is because it was a very moving sermon for a few people that heard it, they left the church. Shortly thereafter I and I was thankful actually that they left not not everybody was but I was because they were these people. They were the ones stirring up division in the church constantly picking apart the other brethren in half the time it was, you know what, so some preacher you know 14 counties over said and they would write him up in some brotherhood publication in and out brother Darren said on Sunday Bible. Bottom line, then they would refute it theologically and all that stuff in it which is causing a tremendous dissension in our ranks as a small church of me 100 hundred 50 people in the little community of the northeastern Ohio in I was up again. I was I was young and I just thought man has a never have they never heard this, that this is not a good thing that this is a bad thing and I just kinda did the literally breached. The verses were looking at on the progression that it starts out with the haughty eyes. It starts out with the arrogance and then it moves to the next and it moves to the next and moves to the next and so literally almost each one of these in Proverbs 616 forward. Almost every one of them is kind of a step up from the last one in escalator a logical conclusion.

If you do this. This is what's going to happen next. And if you do those to this is what's going to happen next. And you know if you said to a brother in a church you know that your you're creating your telling lies. Your your spinning out lies against your other brethren, they would get, they would logically say, no, no I'm not. I'm not lying to me.

He really said that.

But what ends up happening in almost all the situations as we begin to assign motives as well. While he said this because he's liberal or because he's a conservative because he's a legalist or because blah blah blah.

And so we start assigning motives to somebody that we don't know because were not God. We don't know what their motives are. I'm guilty of it. I've done it.

I've done it and I think that's what we want all of our listeners to hear is every guy sitting around this table has pretty much done all of these at one time or another in and it is one of those stupid human tricks that you can live to tell about, but there needs to be some repentance involved in, and often times that repentance is hard and often times the revelation of the needed repentance is very painful when God finally comes to you negotiated it in practice. In Proverbs 6 and and begins to reveal that to us. It it hurts.

It hurts us.

It hurts others that have been around us, and we've got a clipped little can illustrate that a little bit in the in the Nixon cross clip into talking reminded me of the time I get asked years ago back in Indiana to be on the board not been asked to be on board at the church known as Acadiana and the grounds committee in the building and grounds committee and I like to build houses you have left it right at me and I can help and I went to the first meeting and the first probably 55 minutes of about a 90 minute meeting was gossip about everything going on in the church met that while this is got to get better the next time I came back the next time is like that I think of more than about three and I to tell Mike. I don't want to be on this committee because this is not what I signed up for. If you need help on something help with the project of the whatever, but I don't want to be a part of this now because it just didn't feel right, right now that's being on one side that we come back with her about times even on the other side of but also you have the stuff up and how they build that in the meantime to register for the upcoming boot camp November 12-15 in that's masculine boot camp November 12-15.

We know you want to be there. We went to their God. Which of the what if one weekend wasn't up to you, go and God will restrain it all masculine journey boot camp basic training designed to give men permission to be how God made passionate warriors kingdom John Eldridge is wild at heart.

Experience four days purpose for God to come after and perhaps reawaken dreams and desires neatly placed in your masculine heart masculine journey spring boot camp coming up April 29 through May 2, masculine and register today.

I this assumes masculine journey. I'm here with my son Eli. We talked about ways you can help support the ministry only, is information on website there on how to do that you go to and click the donate button you can get a masculine and find the masculine working to mail something mail it to PO Box 550, Kernersville, NC 27285, I headed out to quick liar.

We were talking and you guys your opinion on something messed up about the music but we can begin for those who knew the song. It was three dog night in May was about to say you know it was okay because it was one of the amount 67 excessively. The 27 so if you don't know or type member to help Proverbs 6 we don't like that either is 616 through 19. The six things the God hates the seven that he finds detestable and sweet. We cover that first part of haughty eyes, which is more than just judgment all but that really is kind of where we can see it begin begins with this judgmental attitude is prideful arrogance attitude, it were better than someone else fill in the blank. The driver in front of me as an idiot because I don't have these returns.

I know whatever my life might have to liven up and on the turn signal out your liar lap. Darren said I had an most of my lies are really good like Satan you now they've got a grain of truth in them that it's really scary what what he said.

When I began to really evaluate that. Like wow I think about the stories I tell her things. There's truth in their but then you add that part that is the why will you and that's you may not know it's a lie. At the time you make an assumption right you sign values on motive in we talked about it I realized I done this a few weeks back I guess it's been a few months back I was covering for some money on a jobsite and they had me fill in in the situation wasn't expecting it didn't go well. It was with a client meeting and it went really really long. They only think I can out have to guys took five hours in the whole time that I'm there.

That was nice people. I really liked him. It wasn't that it was just I would not plan that much of my day you once I got out of there. I was really frustrated with the situation and I happen to see another friend of mine. Later in the day and I shared it with him in turn shared it with somebody else and to ensure it was somebody else and then pretty soon. My impression of this person's motives, which are just I was just mad, you know, talking about something and later when I thought about I thought know that probably wasn't the issue, but it took on its own life a little bit right and then other people start to make assumptions based upon my assumption based upon this, and none of it could be built on any truth, denier, liar, you this weekend. I been covering for some massively cover some else's job when on vacation in what I do not, but he has stuff it in building houses. You know that you're working on is not necessary documented as it's in your head and you know it. And so when you step in. You can expect some of that only stepping there certain things you don't expect to find things and in a maybe a little different way and so I stepped into some situations this weekend and expect that this whole passage is been on my mind all week and it's changed my communication completely because all I can say is I don't know why were here, the situation with what I'm, you know, what was the only thing on Monday and I don't know why the truth is where the situation is figured out as I start doing anything else. It's gonna lead to haughty eyes and potentially lying tongue with her even though I don't mean it to be at it comes to roast and it's gets brutally ugly likely to drop rock.

Yes, we are likely to drop rock play like that.

Just a second.

That is a great set up for that clip. Robby was your clinical medicine appeared in the second but I want to ask a question first. Think about Lupe that clip that Nestl because that clip when we play that clip of her second tactic is that I don't confuse people that what he tells of the electrical case only gotten Braveheart.

One of them needing scenes from my experiences near the beginnings of and at this point in time William is lost his father-in-law's gone off to be educated and now is coming back to town for the first time, sees his childhood friend, you know, Hamish, which they used to throw rocks together which Amos is clearly forgotten, but he didn't read see his old friend and immediately you know he will keep he thought he was going to show him how much more of a man he had become. While this guy was off me and feminized inference.

The Iraq test of mom viewing quality taste of souls leaving English will lead to stainless with this sweet team of students will attest to the soldiers not to see it as it medicine bottle, that through the close you look at what could Lynn do it you like to see him trust me like what you believe that she should and a member of the box should you call this one haughty Hamish titled the what was it about that that made you can think of this past well you you know it is when you see an old friend and for whatever reason you know you have this desire to see where you are in the pecking order of things and and certainly in front of the whole village you know Amos is to show that he's clearly the bigger man than the then young William however William immediately. It's beautiful. He says you in eight need anyone to compete when he saw the opportunity to get something that was a teachable moment which was what is inside of a soldier is not in his arm. It's in his head right.

He takes the small rock you don't see this I should set it up better because what happens is Amos roses greatly get drunk over to the side of William. He takes a little bit. Iraq became a major strike mad which you know about Nazi matters is that he's kind of silly and then he recalls a child an incident where you know William could hit things with the rocket and Hamish couldn't and so he got it he got a little teat taught on note using your head over using your arm and that sometimes what happens and unfortunately there's times that it doesn't interest goes on you.

As I look to the system thing on ask you guys did anyway and on as I looked through it there.

There's a lot of them in here I can go Yep Yep Yep right haughty eyes. I if I'm honest with myself I know I've done that aligned time gap and that one skipped an action for minute and a heart that devises wicked schemes yeah I had a quick correction evil. You been there, follow false witness who pours out lies not intentionally but yes I've done that, and I probably done it intentionally back in the past in a person who stirs up conflict and community will fit on the other things I've done that, the one that's hard for me, hands that shed innocent blood today and if you can just pass the same.

I got nothing there so hands that shed innocent blood coming. Obviously there's there's the easy ones right. Tom abortion you know here in America. I may not have shed innocent blood, but I may have voted for people that put judges in that make it legal or voted for politicians that that say it's okay in and again that you know that may not be a dividing line for you. But it is for me. I mean it is like I can't vote for somebody who is for abortion.

I just can't.

So that's easy though. And that's the easy one right. I personally have never shed innocent blood that I know of K.

I may run somebody off the road. My mother died behind me and the police never called me. I don't know probably heralds done that I i.e. you know he's been around longer so the GIs just a possibility is more with him. So no, but I may very well have hurt someone's heart in such a way to cause them to turn their back on Christ and what would be worse than shedding innocent blood than to shed the soul you know if I hurt someone in such a way that they would turn their back on Christ and their soul would be eternally damned because they chose well.

If the God Darren's trying to get me to you know believe is the same one that he believes and he's able to act like that, then I'm no I may have done that very easily may have done that probably have done it more than than once inside, I pray that that's not the case. I pray that if that has happened that God would enter into that person's life and put someone else there that is a more Christlike figure than I was at that time when I was in their life and I and I know I've been in people's lives. When I was, not a Christlike figure at all and so that to me is is the way that I apply that I mean there's the easy stuff. Yeah, you shall not kill. You shall not commit murder, but what would be worse took to murder Christian or to cause someone sold to nap for inner into Christ. I think the latter would be worse. That's a tough lien. I was thinking about this particular part of it. I thought about what about times that I'm uncertain note of the situation and I don't speak up right that acted not speaking up.

You know you you you get this indication that maybe there's an abusive husband right now like allowing I'm not sure I don't otherwise speak up on that is that not part of it and it united God's Lane. This feeling in your heart you don't do something with it at some point, you can say how much am I responsible for as well and then we just barely touch on this topic or talk a lot more about it in the after hours and play great clip from David Frost and Richard Nixon. That was headed to it's good it's a great clip to talk about it. Rossi ensures more of our personal stories and come back and talk more about this passage next week. In the meantime, we likely to consider coming to the base camp and you get a masculine to register now and it's coming up November 12-15 to be a great time. If you are just missing being around people that be one reason to, nuclear shall be people there you have a great time.

More importantly got to be there gasket something great in store for you. I promise you I don't know what it is that I do know he has because he always does will see you next week. This is the Truth Network
