Facebook Takes a Dive!
Hello and welcome to the podcast! Today we begin by discussing the Facebook stock plunge. Why did it take this instance to make it plunge? Are we addicted to social media? How is it affecting our overall health?
Mark Zuckerberg lost over 16 billion dollars in five minutes. After a lousy profit projection, Wall Street then goes into a frenzy trading their Facebook stocks. At one point today the Facebook drop was over 20%!
After our 1 John Study?
After we discuss the Facebook plunge we begin our study in 1 John 5. This chapter is the final chapter of our 1 John study. After this study we will then begin studying the age of the earth and giving context to all arguments. Before we begin this study I need to make it well known that I am a young earth believer. I believe that we live on an earth that God created in six days and it is under 10,000 years old. I have been fully indoctrinated by Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis!
1 John 5:1-4 Study
While discussing 1 John 5:1-4 I go on a rant about His commandments not being burdensome. As always, I then dive into my life as a false convert and how His commandments felt burdensome.
But are His commandments really burdensome? No.
In fact, the life of un repenting sin is burdensome. Constantly searching for the next high, the next paycheck, the next lust. The lusting of the flesh and the wallet only leads to destruction and a false happiness.
Only trusting in Jesus Christ and keeping his commandments will we find peace. Focusing on living for Him and His Will alone is not burdensome. In fact, it is the exact opposite.
As we see in 1 John 5:4, our faith is the victor over the world! We have found victory in our faith that overcomes the entire world!
‘For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. ‘ – 1 John 5:4
