Proverbs 17:19-20 He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction. He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
A couple of brief points to make from these verses that are particularly pertinent for us Independent Baptists.
1. He loveth transgression that loveth strife. So to love strife (see Philippians 1:15) is to love transgression – you know, like, sin.
2. He that hath a froward heart findeth no good. So if all you can see is the bad in everything, it means you have a froward heart.
That’s what God said. Just something to think about.
