Commentary by:  Gordon King Copyright© 2013

Distraction and detraction.  Two of the enemies weapons against the Lord and His flock.

Definitions from the “Free Dictionary”.

distraction [dɪˈstrækʃən]

1. the act or an instance of distracting or the state of being distracted
2. something that serves as a diversion or entertainment
3. an interruption; an obstacle to concentration
4. (Psychology) mental turmoil or madness

de·trac·tion  (d-trkshn)

1. The act of detracting or taking away.

2. A derogatory or damaging comment on a person’s character or reputation; disparagement.

The definitions say it all in a nutshell my friends.  Some of us are being distracted and detracted from what we are to be doing for the Kingdom of God.  There are many obstacles and interruptions which lead us away from the Word of God.  That lead us away from the commandments of our Savior.  We are being diverted away from the truth, from the message of Jesus Christ!

Our reputation and character is being damaged by derogatory comments and statements made about us and directed towards us.  In order to justify the minds and beliefs of others.  All at the expense of lost souls, and damage to the church in general.

The very sad thing about this is that much of this distraction and detraction is coming from other believers!

It’s time we stand together in the name of Jesus Christ!  Let us all put away our differences and unite as one body. 

The message that we are to be preaching and spreading is Jesus Christ and what He has done for us.  That God loves everyone and wants all to be saved.  That there is a way out and that way is through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.  That He is the way, the truth and the life.  That’s it!

We should not be sidetracked nor led astray my friends.  Let us not be divided by unprovable doctrine.  By differences of opinion which have no bearing on our salvation.  For the Lord Almighty knows all things, yet we are merely servants of Him who is all-wise and omniscient.  The wisdom of man is foolish.

New King James Version (NKJV)

19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;”

I am not perfect, I am a sinner, I make mistakes, I do not know everything, I am continuing to learn, I am always striving to be more Christ like.  These things I know about myself.  I shall never know all or understand all, however I shall have more understanding and insight once I meet my maker in heaven.  And only then shall I see things for what they truly are, how they were truly meant to be.

Let us all keep watch, encourage with love and understanding, have mercy and forgiveness.  Without these things we are led astray from what we were commissioned for.

God Bless Everyone!

      Lets see who was King James?

      The irony goes further. King James did not encourage a translation of the Bible in order to enlighten the common people: his sole intent was to deny them the marginal notes of the Geneva Bible. The marginal notes of the Geneva version were what made it so popular with the common people.

      The King James Bible was, and is for all practical purposes, a government publication. There were several reasons for the King James Bible being a government publication. First, King James I of England was a devout believer in the “divine right of kings,”

      King James I, among his many other faults, preferred young boys to adult women. He was a flaming homosexual. His activities in that regard have been recorded in numerous books and public records; so much so, that there is no room for debate on the subject. The King was queer.

      The depravity of King James I didn’t end with sodomy. James enjoyed killing animals. He called it “hunting.” Once he killed an animal, he would literally roll about in its blood. Some believe that he practiced bestiality while the animal lay dying.

      James was a sadist as well as a sodomite: he enjoyed torturing people. While King of Scotland in 1591, he personally supervised the torture of poor wretches caught up in the witchcraft trials of Scotland. James would even suggest new tortures to the examiners. One “witch,” Barbara Napier, was acquitted. That event so angered James that he wrote personally to the court on May 10, 1551, ordering a sentence of death, and had the jury called into custody. To make sure they understood their particular offense, the King himself presided at a new hearing – and was gracious enough to release them without punishment when they reversed their verdict.
