Meme: What Has God Been Teaching Me?

I’ve been tagged by TC Robinson for a meme started by Roger Mugs.

“In an effort to keep it simple, short, and easy to follow, I’d like to challenge you to quote one verse (not one chapter). And then say what the Lord has been teaching you in one sentence (not one paragraph). Then tag 5 peeps (you know the drill).”

Psalm 51:4 TNIV
Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.

God is the holy lawgiver and when we sin it is against the one who not only gave the law, but is the Holiest of holy who is infinitely more offended by sin that any people we sin against, and caused David to declare that only against Him was he sinning.

That verse always mystified me. In a future post I may elaborate on this regarding forgiveness which is more personal in nature.

I’d like to tag:

  • Stefan – even though he doesn’t have time right now
  • Mike – ditto
  • Bryan – I follow Christ (or whatever it’s called now)
  • John MacArthur

    Yeah… sorry about that. Luckily, this one is here to stay! (until I can’t afford to keep the domain haha).


  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    I changed it to According to the Scriptures in my Blogroll. Is that correct? I’m not sure if ΚΑΤΑΓΡΑΦΑΙΣ would come through for everyone.

    Someday I’m going to have to explain this Scripture Zealot thing so people don’t get the wrong idea. A lot of people come here while searching for “zealot” in the Bible.

    “According to the Scriptures” is correct!

    Also, I wouldn’t worry about your name- unless you start getting hits talking about Jewish Apocalypticism. Then you might find yourself at the epicenter of a Jewish Revolt and a Jewish-Roman war on your hands! 🙂

  4. 4 Scripture Zealot

    Say that five times fast.

    Jewish Apocalypticism, Jewish Apocalypticism, Jewish Apocalypticism, Jewish Apocalypticism, Jewish Apocalypticism,
    that was harder than I had anticipated…
    i hear what it is on which your musing… and i look forward to a future post in which you elaborate…

    unless our sin is of the sexual nature in which case we’re sinning against our own bodies… hmm… curious thought

    I had enough trouble typing it out- I don’t want to see what happens if I try and say it over and over 😉

  7. 7 Scripture Zealot

    Thanks Roger. Now you’ve written fodder for the search engines. (smiley would go here)

    The forgiveness part has to do with how major his forgiveness is for us and us forgiving others with that perspective. That may be a post for your blog.

  8. 8 rogermugs

    sounds good to me…
    also, glad to be a part of something useful (even if the search engines or whatever)

  9. 9 ElShaddai Edwards

    Hmmm… “ElShaddai the Essene” has a nice ring to it. Then we could truly talk about the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness…

  10. 10 Scripture Zealot

    The Zealots could beat up the Essenes, it’s just a matter of finding them…
