1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

A Gift From God

We sometimes blame God for the frustrations and disappointments we have experienced in life. The question is, Are bad things really comes from above?

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

A water for example is a good gift coming from above. It is a combination of 2 hydrogen and 1 oxygen (H2O). Taking the hydrogen and mixing it with another kind of elements to form a weapon of mass destruction will then become an invention from man's ingenuity and definitely not from God.

A banana fruit for example is a valuable source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium. The inner part can be eaten raw or cooked by adding sugar but excessive consumption of sugar has been associated with increased incidence of type 2 diabetes, obesity and tooth decay.

The secret word is originality, thus, adding, mixing, mingling, budding, grafting, deducting anything to it, is often times dangerous.

As good wife comes from the Lord.
Proverbs 19:14 House and riches [are] the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife [is] from the LORD.
Same with religion which is the Church of God.
2 Corinthians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy [our] brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
The emergence of different religions, sects and other denomination is a product of man's inventions unmindful of the good and perfect gifts that comes from above.
Deuteronomy 12:32 “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Do you know of a perfect gift from above that has been changed by man rather than accepting as it is presented to us?
