    So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus. Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.

    I see this as a struggle happening inside of people, evil people being symbolic of evil elements inside of you.


    Ps 37:3-13 (ASV)
    Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart. Commit thy way unto Jehovah; Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass. And he will make thy righteousness to go forth as the light, And thy justice as the noonday. Rest in Jehovah, and wait patiently for him: Fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, Because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil-doing. For evil-doers shall be cut off; But those that wait for Jehovah, they shall inherit the land. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: Yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and he shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the land, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plotteth against the just, And gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord will laugh at him; For he seeth that his day is coming.

    "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will - to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding." - Ephesians 1:3-8 (NIV, 1984)

    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

    Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7

    You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life.

    “Your approval means nothing to me, because I know you don’t have God’s love within you. For I have come to you in my Father’s name, and you have rejected me. Yet if others come in their own name, you gladly welcome them. No wonder you can’t believe! For you gladly honor each other, but you don’t care about the honor that comes from the one who alone is God." - John 5:39-44

    "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:8-9

    I was only going to post verses 11-12. But then I got to reading the rest, and realized that it's been a while since I read Proverbs.


    3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
    bind them around your neck,
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
    4Then you will win favor and a good name
    in the sight of God and man.

    5Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
    6in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.a

    7Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
    8This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.

    9Honor the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
    10then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine.

    11My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not resent his rebuke,
    12because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
    as a father the son he delights in.b

    13Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
    14for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.

    15She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.
    16Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honor.

    17Her ways are pleasant ways,
    and all her paths are peace.
    18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
    those who hold her fast will be blessed.

    19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,
    by understanding he set the heavens in place;
    20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
    and the clouds let drop the dew.

    21My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
    preserve sound judgment and discretion;
    22they will be life for you,
    an ornament to grace your neck.

    23Then you will go on your way in safety,
    and your foot will not stumble.
    24When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
    when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

    25Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
    26for the Lord will be at your side
    and will keep your foot from being snared.

    27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
    when it is in your power to act.
    28Do not say to your neighbor,
    “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—
    when you already have it with you.

    29Do not plot harm against your neighbor,
    who lives trustfully near you.
    30Do not accuse anyone for no reason—
    when they have done you no harm.

    31Do not envy the violent
    or choose any of their ways.
    32For the Lord detests the perverse
    but takes the upright into his confidence.

    33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
    but he blesses the home of the righteous.
    34He mocks proud mockers
    but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.

    35The wise inherit honor,
    but fools get only shame.

    -Proverbs 3:3-35

    5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. -Exodus 20:5-6

    There are some good things about the internet... sometimes I do need to remind myself of that. One of them is being able to study and ask questions about scripture. It's easy to take that for granted, since we are now used to having that kind of information at our fingertips.

    Case in point... I often wondered if the verse above meant that children were punished for the sins of their parents. I think this page give an excellent analysis of the scripture above, with references to other related scriptures... and pretty much sums up my interpretations on the subject: Does God "Visit the Sins of the Fathers on the Children"?

    At times, some of the things stated in scripture seem unfair to me. But in my heart I know that God is good. Faith is paramount. And scripture also says that we are all given a choice (1 Corinthians 10:13, or Ezekiel 33:14-15). God is deep, and scripture is deep. When we try to narrow it all down to one verse, we don't see that.
