Just A Little Tangled: The Traps Of Life.

The Bible uses many words for traps. How to avoid them? How to strengthen our walk in Christ. The Bible give the answer.  A person does not fall into sin by accident.  It is by their own desires they are attracted to sin and fall into the snare of the devil to get tangled up with sin.

“For he is thrown into the net by his own feet, And he steps on the webbing.  “A snare seizes him by the heel, And a trap snaps shut on him.  “A noose for him is hidden in the ground, And a trap for him on the path. Job 18:8–10

Some Bible verses are disappearing because textual criticism revealed they are not in the early manuscripts or most reliable manuscripts and shouldn't be there. I recall years ago while reading my Bible, I stumbled across a note, “The earliest manuscripts and many other ancient witnesses do no have John 7:53-8:11.”  I Thought, “What does that mean?”  They had the verses right there.  The verses were translated. “How could they say that?”  I was very leery of this comment and I quietly looked past it as though it wasn’t here.  I had never heard of such a thing.

Not Ashamed Proud

An investigation of the Bible's double negatives like "Not ashamed" that often become positive with emphasis and are often misunderstood by modern Bible readers.

If you can bear with my math background for a moment and recall that a negative times a negative  {(-1) X (-1) = 1}  is a positive. It’s just amazing how that works.  It’s like going to the opposite of your left.  This kind of thing is also commonly used in language.  The negative of a negative. Now, if I tell you something is not negative, you would probably understand it as a positive rather than a neutral. Enough of the abstract, let’s get back to the real world where this concept influences language.

You can reduce your effort in searching by using collections to limit your library to resources most relevant to your search.  It gives you fewer search results that searching your complete library would.  You also find useful information more readily when you use collection to search where the information is.
