BR, I have a friend that has been a preacher for over 40 years, he say that he has always heard people quote that phrase, but he has yet to find it in the scriptures.

If memory serves, see the Book of James.

Evidently. Similar to hiding in plain sight.

As of an hour ago he still hasn't been apprehended. The correctional facility used to be a state mental hospital (hence the beautiful campus) and yes, minimum security means the guards don't even carry guns.

I have a .380, 22 & 223 with me at all times in the Polaris.



A 380 handgun but why a 22 when you have a 233 ?
Just curious

The 22 is primarily for armadillos, which are destroying our Bermuda & brome fields, pastures, yard/landscaping around the house. Trapping them was an epic fail so we pick 'em off any time we can and they're a lot easier to remove in one piece. ;-)

This is where the subject of religion can get astray, when differences in interpretation come into play. I am not trying to be promoting a certain interpretation on this forum, just explaining how I have heard that verse defined. The way that I have understood that verse is that the works referred to are akin to doing good deeds, i.e. working at doing good in place of or in addition to faith. The presumed reciprocal would be if one has faith then they will likely also desire to do good works. Again not promoting a particular belief just attempting to define the interpretation that I have heard. As with many others there are differing views on that particular verse.

I bet this is going to wake up Mod2. But...

Bill. To echo your words...people depending on their agenda use the ancient words of the bible, which are subject to numerous translations, to support whatever agenda they fancy at the moment. One day a verse means this....the next day it means that.

Count the number of times someone got in your face and said "the bible says this". To tell you the truth if my bible ever starts talking to me, I might become a believer but so far I have to read it. At the end of the day, my reading of it may result in an entirely different meaning than yours.

Thank Ben Franklin for this one. "God helps those who help themselves" is probably the most often quoted phrase that is not found in the Bible. This saying is usually attributed to Ben Franklin, quoted in Poor Richard's Almanac in 1757. In actuality, it originated from Algernon Sydney in 1698 in an article titled Discourses Concerning Government.

I am glad you posted that. I never thought that all those years of enforcing government laws and regulations was doing God's work. If Sessions can claim that, then it has to be right. lol

It didn't stop when England split from the Catholic church, no no. I just find it amazing how people can twist words in so many directions to fit their needs. I'm sure there's a lawyer that will find a way to tell you the sky isn't really blue and the sun isn't shining if it meant their client was found not guilty.

I've never heard that quoted as scripture. I always known that's just paraphrasing the teachings.
