• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outleet and safe community to be apart of.

Learning and Growing

‘Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.’

Proverbs 9:9


An anonymous poet wrote: ‘If you can start the day without caffeine; if you can get going without pep pills; if you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains; if you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles; if you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it; if you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time; if you can forgive a friend’s lack of consideration; if you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you, when, through no fault of your own, something goes wrong;

if you can take criticism and blame without resentment; if you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him; if you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend; if you can face the world without lies and deceit; if you can conquer tension without medical help; if you can relax without liquor; if you can sleep without the aid of drugs; if you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or colour, religion or politics; then, my friend, you’re almost as good as your dog.’ Almost, but not quite!

This poem is dedicated to two kinds of people:

1) Animal lovers.

2) Those committed to learning and growing: ‘Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.’
