The 365 Project - Day 45
I have been finding some great opportunities to take pictures and to use them for some great blog posts. Okay, so I was in the library with my good friend Jacob last night, and we were just browsing through the historical section. There were photos of the seminary's classes dating all the way back to the 1870s when James Boyce was president of the Seminary. It was so awesome to see all of this. It was in a hallway blocked off by metal gated rooms with locks on the doors. It obviously was some sort of restricted section, because some of the books looked to be older than the school. Anyway, I turned around, and saw sections on different world regions, and saw this book and it made me laugh. I thought it was a joke, but it was really there. I just thought you would get a kick out of this.
1st Corinthians 6
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
These books are all around warnings to people to stay clear from people who would seem unjust. It is clear in this chapter that Paul was saying that nobody was going to inherit the Kingdom of God if they were living in sin. But we have hope, because we have received justification through Christ's sacrifice. So rejoice in that today.
