 On just such husks do the religious swine feed -pink


[b]On just such husks do the religious swine feed[/b]

(Arthur W. Pink)

"Take heed what you hear." Mark 4:24

The word hear obviously includes what is read, for
that which is written or printed is addressed to the
ears of our intellect. Few people today realize the
urgent need for 'taking heed' unto what they read.
Just as the natural food which is eaten either helps
or hinders the body; so the mental food we receive
either benefits or injures the mind, and that, in turn,
affects the heart. Now just as it is harmful to listen
to the rubbish and poison which is being served from
the great majority of present-day pulpits, so it is
exceedingly injurious to the soul to read most of
what is now being published. Take heed what you
hear--and read!

"Those who are after the flesh do mind the things
of the flesh" (Romans 8:5), and are charmed with
oratorical eloquence, catchy sayings, witty allusions,
and jocular displays. On just such husks do the
religious swine feed; but the penitent prodigal
can find no nutriment therein!

Christian reader, if you value the health of your soul,
cease hearing and quit reading all that is lifeless,
unctionless, powerless--no matter what prominent or
popular name is attached thereto. Life is too short
to waste valuable time on that which profits not.

Ninety-nine out of every hundred of the religious books,
booklets, and magazines now being published, are not
worth the paper on which they are printed! Take heed
what you hear--and read!

What vanity the reprinting of vain thoughts to lead other people's minds into a vain excercise of their brains. God give us a use of our full volition and mind to glorify your name. Muller had his diary's burnt except for a small amount so that people would not further this degredation of good christian liteature available to the masses.

 Re: On just such husks do the religious swine feed -pink

It is so true!

I have been given books to read that I would never have bought myself, read halfway, and then left them. They weren't for me. They were just trash, to put it mildly.

I won't say what the books were, for the sake of peace!

As it has been said garbage in garbage out.

God bless.
