Book of Proverbs 9-12 As a Jewel of Gold in a Swine's Snout

FYI, I've caught up and posted my thoughts on chapters 5-8 in the earlier post.

Proverbs 9-12

Proverb 9 has some nice thoughts on wisdom (other then the misogynistic imagery the end).
Imagine if it was applied to reason and critical thought!

Proverb 10:30 states;
"The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth."
Doesn't this contradict the Book of Revelations which tells us that the good guys will be raptured off the earth while the wicked will be 'left behind'?

11:1 shows that God hates Fox News!

  1. @Bruce,
    Here are my thoughts on Proverbs 10:30

    As i have put my faith in Jesus Christ, my foundation (Luke 6:46-49) and strength (Philippians 4:13), as i keep my faith in Him i will not be removed i have a sure foundation. Now others that don't trust in Jesus Christ have store up their treasures here on earth, which one day they will leave behind. (Revelation 21:7,8)
