Deliverance From Debt (It's FREE)

The rich rule over the poor,
and the borrower is servant to the lender

Proverbs 22:7

My wife and I found this new website that is 100% free. If you are tired of being in debt, I highly recommend trying this 12 week course out. My wife and I are going to try it even though we seem to have our finances somewhat under control. I think its a good thing to always be teachable. Yet both of us are, in the words of Dave Ramsey, "getting mad" at it and are taking charge of our finances. Life is horrible living under the tent of a lender. So break free by becoming debt free!!! My wife and I are excited about this. Check out the website by clicking here.

Taken out of context

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
John 8:31-32

I've heard this verse numerous times, but only part of the verse has been emphasized. The part I'm referring to here is "you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." It sounds great and even can make someone feel good, yet it is so far from what Jesus is getting at. It is interesting to note that Jesus is giving an "if, then" statement. If you do "x," then "x" will occur. It's a simple statement yet we ignore the first half of Jesus statement to hold to his teaching. I wonder why?

Are there any sayings you thought the Bible said something, yet when you read them into context with the Scriptures it was something totally different? Let me know, I'd love to hear them. God Bless
