Today's notes:


What is man believing/doing?:

What is making man to believe/do as he is doing?:


Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. What is blessed in God's eye is largely rejected and persecuted (actively or passively) in man's.
  2. The intention of being/becoming happy is universal, most see the intention as the primary goal to serve rather than the inherent outcome of serving the living God.
  3. context of man being incapable by own means to establish/maintain/advance countered by the need to rely upon the capability of God.
