...
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus Christ. John 1:17
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

Proverbs 17:1 – 17:28

  1 Better [is] a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices [with] strife.
  2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
  3 The fining pot [is] for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the Lord trieth the hearts.
  4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; [and] a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
  5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: [and] he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
  6 Children’s children [are] the crown of old men; and the glory of children [are] their fathers.
  7 Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.
  8 A gift [is as] a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
  9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
  10 A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
  11 An evil [man] seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
  12 Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
  13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
  14 The beginning of strife [is as] when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.
  15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both [are] abomination to the Lord.
  16 Wherefore [is there] a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing [he hath] no heart [to it]?
  17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
  18 A man void of understanding striketh hands, [and] becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
  19 He loveth transgression that loveth strife: [and] he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
  20 He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
  21 He that begetteth a fool [doeth it] to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.
  22 A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
  23 A wicked [man] taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
  24 Wisdom [is] before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool [are] in the ends of the earth.
  25 A foolish son [is] a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.
  26 Also to punish the just [is] not good, [nor] to strike princes for equity.
  27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: [and] a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
  28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: [and] he that shutteth his lips [is esteemed] a man of understanding.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
