Warning against Idleness
2 Thessalonians 3:6-15
6 We command you, brethren, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh inordinately, and not after the instruction, which he received of us.
7 For ye yourselves know, how ye ought to follow us, for we behaved not ourselves inordinately among you,
8 Neither took we bread of any man for nought, but we wrought with labor and travail night and day, because we would not be chargeable to any of you.
9 Not because we have not authority, but that we might make ourselves an example unto you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we warned you of, that if there were any, which would not work, that he should not eat.
11 For we hear, that there are some which walk among you inordinately, and work not at all, but are busybodies.
12 Therefore them that are such, we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that they work with quietness, and eat their own bread.
13 And ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
14 If any man obey not this our saying in this letter, note him by a letter, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed;
15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
