Nothing can stand in its way

The Word is a sword that pierces the heart And its truth is a light that cuts through the dark Of this world. Nations shall rise and nations shall fall But nothing shall stand in the way Of the Word.  - Iona The older I grow and the more I see, the less I am enamored with people's opinions, observations, and reports unless they line up with the Word of God found in the Bible. I know that there are a million different interpretations of problematic passages in the Bible, but, as Mark Twain was fond of saying, "It isn't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me. It is the parts I do understand." There were (are?) so many times in my life that I let my emotions or clouded perspective get in the way of the truth. I speak nothing but lies to myself and sometimes even to others. Those are the times that I am not so much in love with the truth, but in love with myself or in "love" with the other person I am lying to.  B
