The Berean's - Acts 17:10-14

Don't give what is holy to dogs or toss your pearls before pigs, or they will trample them under
their feet, turn, and tear you to pieces.  Matthew 7:6

To the unbeliever the words of Christ noted in Matthew 7:6 are nothing more than rubbish, so
it is not my intention that they see them as credible.  To those who have stepped out of the
darkness and into His marvelous light these words spell the truth and give additional meaning
to verses 7 and 8.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it
shall be opened.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly
dividing the word of truth.  2 Timothy 2:15

And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming
thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.  These were more noble than those in
Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the
scriptures daily, whether those things were so.  Therefore many of them believed; also of
honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.  Acts 17:10-12

In 1984 when I was called to be the Elder of a church and started the church in the living
room of my home I was inspired to call the church The Berean Church of God in Christ,
named after those believers in the village of Berea as noted in the afore mentioned scriptures.  
Like the Bereans in the book of Acts I would teach the members of our tiny congregation to
also follow their dedication to the word of God, to the Bible the only true word of God.  To
study the word and determine after prayer and study if what was taught really adhered to Gods

To the unbeliever I taught Jesus and Jesus only, not Jesus plus something but only Jesus for it
was Christ that stated:

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.  John 14:6

Going back to Matthew 7:6 I realize living in the world, America my own city and state that
the numbers of non-believers are immense and few will accept what I say even when
supported with the word of God, they are the dogs, the swine (pigs).  What you will read in the
sharing of my thoughts are written to give comfort to believers living in this day and age when
humanity see good as evil and evil as good.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for
darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.  Isaiah 5:20
