I am trying to find out the validity of the following article.

Not sure how valid it is, it could be just KJO propaganda.

Wed Sep 20, 2017 1:55 AM Request from my Pastor by Tom
Hi
My pastor is doing some research for an upcoming sermon series he is do on 'The Lord's Prayer'.
He sent me an e-mail, which I have included below. Any help would be appreciated.

Quote
I'm looking for the source for a quote by puritan William Perkins and I thought you may know someone who could dig it up. It's in A.W. Pink's book on the Lord's Prayer. Here's the quote:

“O Lord, open our eyes that we may know Thee aright and may discern Thy power, wisdom, justice, and mercy; and enlarge our hearts that we may sanctify Thee in our affections, by making Thee our fear, love, joy, and confidence; and open our lips that we may bless Thee for Thine goodness; yea, O Lord, open our eyes that we may see Thee in all Thy works, and incline our wills with reverence for Thy name appearing in Thy works, and grant that when we use any one of them, that we may honour Thee in our sober and sanctified use thereof.”

William Perkins in A.W. Pink, The Lord’s Prayer, 30-31.

I don't want to tempt you to get bogged down in forums again, but could you ask on Puritan Board or one of the forums you're a part of?

Thank you,
John

In Leviticus 25 why is it that property inside a walled city did not revert as is all other property? And, I think I read someplace years ago that Jubilee was really never practice fully by the Jewish nation.

Mon Sep 11, 2017 6:32 PM The way men suffer by chestnutmare
When good and bad men suffer alike, they are not, for that reason indistinguishable because what they suffer is similar. The sufferers are different even though the sufferings are the same trials; though what they endure is the same, their virtue and vice are different. For, in the same fire, gold gleams and straw smokes; under the same flail the stalk is crushed and the grain threshed; the lees are not mistaken for oil because they have issued from the same press. So, too, the tide of trouble will test, purify, and improve the good, but beat, crush, and wash away the wicked. So it is that, under the weight of the same affliction, the wicked deny and blaspheme God, and the good pray to Him and praise Him. The difference is not in what people suffer but in the way they suffer. The same shaking that makes fetid water stink makes perfume issue a more pleasant odor.

~ Augustine

Sun Sep 10, 2017 10:11 PM Superstition by Tom
I think it could safely be said that superstition is idolatry.
There are lot of very superstitious people out there. For example someone recently said to me, they think the reason their sports team never wins the cup; is because their arena is build on "an Indian burial ground.
Clearly believing something like this is a form of idolatry.
I am reminded also of an old childhood superstition, that was popular. "Don't step on a crack, you will break your mother's back."
Would it also be correct to say that superstition has roots in Pantheism?
