A NOTE FROM DAVID

 

We all too easily think, with the emphasis that Jesus places on love and forgiveness, that he didn't teach any absolutes.

But, as can be seen over these two weeks, Jesus did place boundaries on believer's behavior.

Don't take my word for it! Study the Scriptures!

Ancient Babylonia - The Hammurapi Stele

This stele has inscribed on it the laws of Hammurapi, and was discovered in Susa.

This sculpture depicts King Hammurapi on top of the seven-foot tall stela containing his law code, which was written sometime after 1800 BC. Hammurapi established a unified system of laws and penalties within his expanding kingdom.
 

 

So until next week.......
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD!

His servant and yours
