What is this blog about?
For the Love of His Truth is a blogsite dedicated to providing uncompromising Biblical truth to the reader regarding a diversity of subjects which affect the lives of Christians. It is our intention to proclaim the true Gospel of Jesus Christ as presented in the Word of God, and to maintain the centrality of Jesus Christ in all we do here. The blog is voluntarily and privately administered by us as children and servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, us having been purchased by His Precious Blood.
It is our desire to provide a platform to prayerfully assist others in their understanding of God, Scripture, salvation, Biblical doctrine and other topics, while we continue to grow in our own understanding through interacting with other true Christians. It is not our intention to force the reader to agree with us on the issues discussed on the blog, but rather to point the reader to what the Bible teaches and how the Word of God is relevant to all issues. Neither is it our intention that this blog be a place to hold extended discussions or debates on these topics.
There are more than enough sensationalist blogs and forums which continue along deceived paths, while on the surface they proclaim to attack the opponents of the church, in truth, they are attacking the true church by creating yet another form of man-centered gospel under the banner of a ‘discernment’, ‘watchman’, or ‘contending’ ministry of sorts. We do not seek any self glorification, praise or recognition for what we write here, if it does not glorify God, it has no place here.
We are accountable to every saved Christian who reads our material. We undertake to withdraw or amend anything we say, if it can be unequivocally shown from Scripture that we are wrong.
Children have the natural ability to discern real, comforting and unpretentious love from ‘big’ people. Most of us know how incredibly observant and brutally honest most children are. Most animals, and I speak with much experience about dogs in particular, have the same highly developed ability. It almost lends credence to the idea of a “sixth” sense.
They are able to detect a confident and unpretentious affinity in people with genuine intent toward them. As is the case with children, it is a natural and necessary ability for them to determine authenticity for their safety’s sake. One cannot lie to a child or a dog about sincerity. It might take most of us adults a little longer to discern truthful intentions of others, but eventually all charades and lies about their love for us fall to pieces.
Certain groups of people and professing Christians, who ascribe lesser value to Biblical instruction (sola Scriptura) than they do to a false “experiential” faith, claim that love is greater than doctrine. Such a claim is unscriptural and therefore we reject it.
While love is important, expected and will be evident in the life of true Christians, those who claim that love is greater, almost always treat us dismally. Of course, not at first, but when the initial interest of making acquaintance dissipates, the inevitable occurs. They seem to expect love to be evident from our side, but they themselves cannot portray genuine, non-analytical, unprejudiced love to us! Mostly, their calls to love are a farce, or rather, pretentious and very short-lived. In fairness, this is a generalization and there is a small minority who are truly compassionate and they know exactly who they are.
Love is a part of doctrine, not a separate issue. Man-centred love cannot replace God’s word. Love does not accept heresy or differences in belief caused by misinterpretation of God’s Word. We must and we will support Godly love anchored in God’s doctrine.
How, when and why did this blog originate?
After many months of prayerful and painstaking consideration, this blog was launched as The Love of the Truth around December 2010, mostly as a result of my wife, Elmarie’s, continued interest in pursuing the cause. We discussed the need for (yet another) local platform, however one where we would try to limit pseudo-theological mudslinging, avert religious games being played with the Word of God, dissuade contentiousness simply for the sake of contention, oppose self glorification and, above all, encourage solid interpretation and application of Scripture. Of course, there are other sites which are filled with such wonderful, Biblically sound content and truth, lovingly presented to their readers, to whom we continue to link. Still, there are more which we have yet to discover. We thank the Lord for all of these.
God calls to our souls, a calling that is made to whom God wishes to do His work, people of all nations and without intellectual or academic barriers. The humblest servant of God may in fact, have no training whatsoever. What matters most, is that he is called by God. That is sufficient and the only real qualification required to uphold the truth and to give the Gospel to others.
When compared to God’s word, so much of what is recognized as the usual system of local churches, represents a tolerance of sin, will-worship, legalism, unscriptural practice and man centered traditions. Those, who so often use the phrase ‘no church is perfect’, without much thought to what it entails, are in fact admitting that they are willing to accept unbiblical short-comings. It is a tolerance of imperfection for man’s sake. Sadly, most folk allow this thought process to proliferate in their churches, which is why they tell us ‘no church is perfect’.
Of course, no man made denomination can be perfect, and it would be ludicrous to expect it possible, but that does not provide an excuse for extra-biblical practices. There is, however, one perfect church, the universal church, the church which we become members of, by the grace of God’s calling. If you are a true saved believer in Jesus Christ, it is true to say that you belong to a perfect church, the one to which you were added by God.
We prefer to read Scripture in its own light, in God’s words, as opposed to bowing down to a specific ‘brand’ of Christianity, often based on denominational beliefs or tradition, or those of a particular prominent individual or group. Once one is convicted by Scriptural truth, one cannot, in good conscience, return to a false belief or message, or to that which is less than God’s best.
It would be incorrect to understand from what I have written above, that we are opposed to membership of the local church, or that we regard qualified pastors and elders called by God, as superfluous. By no means do we advocate that such unbiblical positions be taken. As Christians, we are instructed by Scripture to be members of the local church against which, as Jesus promised, the gates of hell would not prevail.
Who are we and where are we from?
Not long after its launch, the blog was renamed For the Love of His Truth, and I started writing for the blog. Elmarie regularly re-posts selected articles and sermons by Biblical pastors and solid authors, past and present, in order to avail their valuable work to our readers.
In keeping with Bible teaching in 1st Timothy, as a woman, Elmarie holds no position of spiritual authority over men, neither is she a pastor or an elder, nor does she hold any leadership position in a church. It is in accordance with 1 Corinthians 11:5 that she prays for all true Christian brothers and sisters, and proclaims the Word of God.
We currently reside in Gauteng Province of South Africa. Our home is on a small farm from where we run our family owned manufacturing and wholesaling business. We share our lives and our home with far too many, or maybe still too few dogs. As a family we have been a registered German Shepherd Dog kennel and great dog lovers since at least 1951. Among the breeds which we adore and keep are also Beagles, Pugs and Corgis. But frankly, any dog will do! The dogs on this page are some of the dogs with which we have been blessed over more recent years. There are more at present, and have been many others, all very well loved children, dedicated protectors and servants, true and loyal lifelong friends. I simply didn’t want to make this page look too much like an advert for a doggie hotel! Some of these little gifts on the photos have passed on, while others still bless us every day.
I have been a passionate musician since my pre-school years, but I have not performed or recorded commercially or publicly for a long time. I love stormy weather, rain, mist, snow and cloudy days. Elmarie loves to do silk ribbon embroidery, is an avid reader and rose gardener. She loves fine weather, warm and sunny days. Our son has a passion for adventure motorcycling and the great outdoors, which we are blessed to have an abundance of in Southern Africa. Our daughter is a keen professional photographer alongside her other artistic talents. Both of them are also quite at home with musical instruments.
From our office and warehouse on the farm, we distribute our mostly medical ranges of animal products throughout our large and uniquely blessed country. Due to the nature of our business, we have traveled extensively throughout Southern Africa over the past twenty plus years, during which we have covered over 6,000,000 km’s by road alone, excluding our monthly air travels, and we are still counting. Through these means God has provided countless unique opportunities for us to proclaim the Gospel, fellowship with other Christians from all walks, distribute free Bibles, tracts, Christian resources and tools, to people in our cities, towns and remote rural areas.
What are our convictions and beliefs?
The Sovereignty of God
God is completely sovereign, in control of absolutely everything at all times. There is not a single molecule floating about in the universe that is outside of His sovereign will and purpose. Everything that happens is either caused or allowed by Him for His own perfect purposes.
God almighty is absolutely sovereign in all things, specifically in predestination, creation, providence, and salvation (Rom. 8:28-30; 11:33-36).
Everything that comes to pass in time was predestinated by God in eternity and is brought to pass by God in providence for the salvation of his elect (Rom. 8:28-30; Eph. 1:11).
God created all things, including the spirit world, out of nothing, in six literal days. He rested on the seventh day, which was also a literal day. God did NOT create over a long period of time. Evolution and theistic evolution are heresies. It is not possible, scientifically or Biblically, for one kind to evolve into another kind.
All humankind are born in sin. There are no exceptions to this law and no exceptions to the law of judgment upon them. Sin separates us all from God.
Adam and Eve were sinless when they were created by God. Through their disobedience to God, sin entered the world. This disobedience was the original sin and was the fall of mankind. Since the fall of man, all humans are born in sin.
Original sin is the cause of all secondary sins. Even if humans lived impossibly perfect lives and never committed any other sins during their lives, they would still be eternally damned, because of their original sin with which all men are born.
We believe there is only one true God. He is a Trinity. He is one God eternally existing in three co-equal Persons; Father and Son and Holy Spirit.
We hold firmly to the glorious doctrines of grace as laid out clearly in Scripture. It is in this way that God saves sinners by His sovereign grace which results in God receiving all the glory for their being saved. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8,9.)
Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ and His finished work of redemption alone. It is not by the free will or good works or religion of man. We are directly opposed to all will-worship, works based, self righteous and legalistic religious church practices.
We believe in the total depravity of all men by sin; the personal, eternal election of God unto salvation; the particular redemption of the elect by Christ’s blood; the irresistible grace of the Holy Spirit in effectual calling; and the final perseverance of the saints in faith and holiness.
God in His Sovereignty chose some of Adam’s fallen race to eternal life in Christ before the world began (Eph. 1:3-6; 2 Thess. 2:13-14).
The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for and redeemed those elect sinners chosen to salvation in eternity and called to life and faith in Him in time (Heb. 9:12; Rev. 5:9).
God the Holy Spirit regenerates and calls every chosen, redeemed sinner to life and faith in Christ by the irresistible power of his grace through the preaching of the gospel (Rom. 1:16-17; 10:13-17; 1 Cor. 1:21-23; James 1:18; 1 Pet. 23-25).
Every sinner born again by God’s free, sovereign, irresistible grace is kept in life and faith in Christ by that same grace unto eternal glory, being sealed in Christ by the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13-14).
All who are born of God, being redeemed by Christ, are forever and entirely free from the law (Rom. 6:14-15; 7:4; 10:4).
Our doctrine is the gospel of salvation by God’s free and sovereign grace through the merits of Christ, our crucified, risen, exalted Lord and King, who gives eternal life to whom he will. “Salvation is of the Lord” (Jonah 2:9). “So then, it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy” (Rom. 9:16).
We reject human devices such as ‘altar calls’ or any other suggestion that we may ‘choose’ God, ‘choose’ to be saved or make a decision ‘for’ Christ.
We are not ruled, governed or in any way obligated to any creed, any denominational confession of faith, or any tradition of men that is not explicitly laid out in the Word of God. Each assembly of believers is to be independent and self-governing.
The church of Christ is our spiritual family. The people of God are our brothers and sisters. The greatest earthly privilege that we enjoy, the greatest earthly blessing God has bestowed upon us, is the privilege of being a part of this assembly of believers. The church is made up of men and women, sinful, mortal people of flesh and blood, frail, weak, depraved men and women; but they are men and women in Christ who are redeemed and regenerated by the grace of God. Fellowship involves communion, agreement of heart, and unity of spirit. Where there is no agreement upon gospel truths there is no fellowship.
It is one thing to have our names on a church role, but it is something else to be a member of the church of God. Church membership is an alliance of hearts to one another in Christ. It is a voluntary commitment of love, a loving commitment to Christ and to one another for Christ’s sake. To unite with the church of God is to make a public commitment to the worship of Christ, the gospel of Christ, and the church of Christ.
We believe that the true church adheres to the Word of God alone as its only standard and rule of faith and practice.
We believe that the Church consists only of those sinners saved by Grace. ‘Membership’ is automatic for such. The church of Jesus Christ is not a building or a denomination on earth and it has no earthly leaders, pope or head. All Christians who have been, or who will be, born, are forever of the True Church.
There are to be no popes, bishops, synods, denominations or any other unbiblical hierarchies to answer to and to be corrupted by. Jesus Christ is the only Head and Lawgiver of the church, through His Word.
We believe in the priesthood of the believers.
We believe in the separation of church and state.
Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, Lord, Christ and the only Savior of men. He is the God-man, true God and true man in one Person and the one Mediator between God and men. He died a substitutionary death on the cross for the sins of His people, was buried, and rose again bodily from the dead the third day. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
Race and nations
All people are created in the image of God. All people are of one race – the human race. The idea that there must be many different races is a man-made concept and is as unbiblical as it is unscientific. There are many ethnic groups and nations, but all belong to one race. All forms of racism, prejudice, and discrimination are affronts to the work of Christ on the cross.
The End Times
We believe in the single, personal, visible, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory at the last day to raise all men from the dead for the final and general judgment. This will be immediately followed by the creation of the new heavens and the new earth. The wicked shall then go into everlasting punishment in hell and the righteous into life eternal in heaven, which is the eternal state.
Heaven and Hell
We believe that Heaven and Hell are real places. Hell is a place of unimaginable terror and woe, a place removed from the Presence of God. Heaven is a place filled with joy and peace and is in the Presence of God.
The Bible, the Word of God
We believe that the Bible in the entirety of its 66 books is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God. We do not believe that there is any form of extra-biblical revelation that takes place since the inception of the complete canon of Scripture. The Word of God, completely and utterly, is perfect and without flaw or contradiction. It is our only guide for living and for faith.
We uphold the Five Solas being Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Solus Christus, Soli Deo Gloria.
Apostles, prophets and gifts today
There are none who hold the offices of prophet or apostle today. There are none today who have the gifts of speaking in tongues, miracles, healing, or prophecy. There is no need for any of these things. We have the full, final, complete revelation of God in the Scriptures. Since that which is Perfect is come, that which was in part is no longer needed. Gifts of the Spirit can be, and often are, counterfeited by Satan (2 Thess. 2:7-10). Miraculous gifts, which appear to be gifts of the Spirit, are by no means an evidence of grace, salvation, and eternal life.
Satan and Demons
Before Satan sinned, he was chief among the angels of heaven. Satan sinned against God and was thrown out of heaven by God to inhabit earth for a season, along with other angels who supported his evil intentions. The angels who were cast out of heaven along with Satan are called demons. Satan and his demons are spirit creatures and they have immense power, knowledge and influence, but have been overcome by Jesus Christ.
Demons are not spirits of the dead or “ghosts”. Because of their great ability to influence mankind, they are able to fool people into believing many lies. They are able to mimic people, influence people and pretend to be friendly spirits of dead people, but all manifestations of this kind are evil. Demons cannot “possess” Christians who are indwelled by the Holy Spirit, but they can and do tempt, influence and cause the saved Christian to commit sin.
Satan has been defeated, overcome and bound by Jesus Christ (Rev 20, Matt 12), and as such, he is unable to stop the arrival and advance of the kingdom. However, Satan can still wield great influence over people. He is now even more dangerous, angry and active than before he was defeated, because he knows his time is short and that he is soon to be cast into the lake of fire for eternity at the coming of our victorious Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that ecumenism is a tool of Satan and is not of God. Ecumenism refers to the combining of ‘Protestantism’ and Roman Catholicism, Christianity and any religion, or the joining together of whole denominations. All denominations are made up of local churches whose local witness and beliefs may be unsound and whose individual members may, or may not, be saved. Only the saved may join with the saved, and no other. Ecumenism could possibly also apply to the confluence of local churches for wider ‘witness’, especially where some churches may have unsound witness and doctrine.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
We believe there are only two church ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s table
We believe that immersion in water of believers is the only true Biblical baptism. Any value granted to infant baptism, is a great deception. Infant baptism is no true baptism, and should be avoided lest those who are spiritually immature be led astray by the false connotations to this belief.
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act performed in memory of Jesus Christ. The purpose of taking part in this service is not to ‘get a blessing’, but simply to remember Jesus Christ and His Perfect sacrifice, until His Second Coming.
We believe that the Reformation was an act of God and the greatest revival ever. This does not imply that we support believers who wish to be known as ‘Calvinists’ or ‘Reformed’. We do not subscribe to those affiliations; we do not ascribe to ourselves the title of Reformed, Calvinist or any other humanly-devised denomination.
We believe that Calvinism is no better than Arminianism or Romanism, if that Calvinism is without Christ. Calvinism has no more to do with salvation than Arminianism or Romanism does. Christians are not those who have been converted to Calvinism. Christians are not concerned with converting unbelievers to Calvinism. Christians want to see sinners saved by the grace of God, converted by the power of God to Jesus Christ the Lord. What matters is how the Bible defines the Gospel, not the definition thereof according to Arminius, Calvin, Roman Catholicism, the Baptist church, Mormonism or any other source other than Scripture.
Heresies, false doctrines, practices and religions
This is by no means a complete historical list and it is constantly being added to. With the vast diversity of deceptions that Satan has used to mislead people, we would probably need hundreds of pages of this nature to mention them all. Even in this list there are glaring omissions, which we will gladly add if you would make us aware of them. We believe that these are all false doctrines, movements and practices, among many others. I have lumped all false religions under the singular entry of “All religions”.
Adoptionism, Albigensianism, All religions, Altar calls, Anglo-Israelism, Antinomianism, Apollinarianism, Arianism, Arminianism, Asceticism, Averroism, Charismaticism, Christadelphianism, Christian Science, Christian Zionism, Common Grace, Decision theology, Denominationalism, Dispensationalism, Divorce and remarriage, Docetism, Donatism, Ecumenism, Emergent movement, Eutychianism, Evolution, Extra-Biblical revelation, Feeneyism, Full preterism, Gnosticism, Hebrew Roots movement, Humanism, Iconodulism, Idolatry, Iglesia ni Christo, Institute of Metaphysical research, Interfaith movement, International Churches of Christ, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Joels Army, Kenosis, Kingdom Now theology, Labyrinth ‘walking’, Latter rain movement, Lectio Divina, Legalism, Liberalism, Manichaeism, Marcionism, Modalism, Modernism, Monarchianism, Monophysitism, Monothelitism, Montanism, Mormonism, Mysticism, Nestorianism, New Age movement, New Anointing, New Apostolic Reformation, New Calvinism, New Wine movement, Ogamisama, Oneness Pentecostals, Paedobaptism, Panentheism, Pantheism, Patripassionism, Pelagianism, Pentecostalism, Prayer ‘soaking’, Popery, Post-apostolic faith healing, Post-apostolic glossolalia, Post-modernism, Prayer ‘walking’, Prosperity preaching, Public or organized fasting, Rastafarianism, Reformed Charismaticism, Reincarnationism, Religious tolerance, Roman Catholicism, Sabellianism, Sacred name movement, Scientology, Semi-pelagianism, Sinner’s prayer, Slain in the Spirit, Socinianism, solo Scriptura, Subordinationism, Synergism, Theistic evolution, Tritheism, Unification church, Unity Church, Universal atonement, Universal World church, Universalism, Woman pastors or elders, Word of Faith movement, Xenolalia
We agree that “The greatest deception to fall upon humanity isn’t atheism, communism, universalism, asceticism, or pantheism. It is by far the deception of self-righteousness–the erroneous belief that man can earn immortality through religious works”.- Ray Comfort
Some important information about the comments and articles on this blog:
1) Should you decide to leave a comment please be kind and loving towards others. If you disagree with the content of an article, feel free to mention your differences from a Biblical perspective, rather than voicing differences based on a radical opinion or the opinion of questionable preachers or religious types.
2) All comments are moderated and no rudeness will be tolerated. Rude, insensitive and unbiblical comments will not be placed. We will delete offensive, inconsiderate and obviously anti-Scriptural comments. We are accountable to every saved Christian who reads the material on this blog, therefore we reserve the right to disapprove comments which we regard as detrimental or opposing to the truth.
3) This blog is not about being sensationalist, self-serving or victorious. It is not about selling a particular viewpoint, other than that of Scripture. Consider readers who may be seeking the Truth; immature Christians who need the nourishment of Scriptural milk; those caught up in false religions or deceived belief systems who need to hear the Truth and the saving Word of the Gospel. Always keep the Gospel in focus in your contributions, if possible. (Pro 27:5-6) Better is open rebuke than hidden love. 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
4) From time to time there may be articles placed here of a “discerning” nature. These articles may have relevance to the false church, false teachings, false preachers, false doctrine, opponents of the Word. As there is no Biblical instruction or commission for a “Discernment ministry” per se, especially not in the form which many of the unloving sites which are flooding the internet assume, please do not regard this blog as such a ministry in any way. All saved, born again Christians do have and should employ the ability, to discern falsities in the Christian church by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit and according to the Word of God. All answers are in the Bible and the studious Berean Christian (Acts 17:10-11) will find the truth nowhere else, but in the Bible.
5) The focus of this blog is to provide a place where a form of fellowship can be enjoyed and where edification of the believer will be a natural progression from that fellowship. However, we underline the fact that fellowship on social media or any internet source cannot replace true personal fellowship. If you feel that you can contribute in a positive way, let this blog be a place where you can minister to or share your faith with others (1 Peter 2:5-9).
6) We are Biblical Christians by the grace of God with no affiliation to any denominational institution other than the universal church of saved believers in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. We are accountable to every saved Christian. We do have many brothers and sisters who do subscribe to specific denominations and teachings and we do not intend to use this blog as a soap box from which to defend or attack any of the beloved, or their views, on condition that those views are Biblical.
7) We have encountered a wealth of solid Biblical teaching on the internet. It seems an almost inexhaustible source of accessible and affordable Bible teaching, and we thank the Lord for providing His church with these tools. Through it the Word can reach so many corners of the globe. Technology is God’s Creation and it enables not only the unbelieving world, but also the true church. Unfortunately and unavoidably, there is an equal or greater amount of dangerous doctrine and false teaching on the internet. Therefore, we will attempt to not publish details contained in comments, which may lead or link to other sources which are questionably Biblical or who do not act primarily in a loving or edifying way. We do apologize beforehand if we edit out the wrong ones or let the wrong ones through! We are not infallible, but we do proclaim and worship an infallible Christ!
8 ) If you reject or wish to disagree with the Truth and Biblical fact that salvation is by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ alone, or that the sole authority for the Christian is the complete Word of God in the Bible, or contend that the God of the Bible is not a sovereign God and that all of creation including the salvation of believers is to Glorify Him alone, then this is probably not the place to do that.
9) If, however, you wish to share the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and wish to bring that message to others, this is where you can do that.
10) Our prayer and hope is that whoever reads or uses this blog as a meeting place, may be blessed by sharing and proclaiming the Truth on it, or be blessed by coming to know the Truth by hearing the Gospel. It is not our intention to be known as a ministry, but if the sharing between believers does minister to anyone, it will be so by the Grace of God. It is our hope that we may reach any Christian or lonely person seeking truth and fellowship.
11) Articles placed or written on this blog are generally the position held by, and in agreement with, the blog administrators’ opinions. Response by the administrators to public comments allowed on this blog may be limited in an attempt to circumvent flippant contentious issues (1 Co 11:16, 1 Tim 1:4-11). Public comments which do appear in response to the articles on this blog, are not necessarily representative of the opinion of the administrators of this blog, neither are they to be regarded as necessarily Biblically correct.
We wish to thank everyone from our hearts, those who read and contribute to this blog in every way.
Please don’t feel the need to be too formal. I have a particular aversion to conformity, formality and mediocrity, and I have a particular appreciation for a good, clean and open sense of humour.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Grant & Elmarie
Soli Deo Gloria
Some of our local churches who seem to be truly blessed with joyous, thankful, humble and unpretentious congregations. Blessed and very touching trials and tribulations will abound there among these very realistic people. Often we find more worth placed on the Word and meaningful fellowship at their humble gatherings, than at most brick and mortar church palaces in affluent areas, where the right money, the right attitude, the right image, legalism and the trappings of success, overshadow true unity and fellowship. Under the trees and among the shacks are not likely to be many conference fashionistas or rock star preachers. Stage lighting and the day jobs and attire of the elders are not likely to be points of conversation.
The LORD is near to those whose hearts are humble. He saves those whose spirits are crushed (Ps 34:18)
