I which I could say "reverend" like Rush Limbaugh says as it is pregnant with the pious bravado that the term implies. It's merely PRIDE, one of the seven things that are an ABOMINATION to GOD.<quoted text>
Amen and Amen!
Of course if you were, you'd know that. But here's another to put in your pipe to smoke.
Proverbs 17:13: Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
14: The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.
15: He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
Save your "reverend" jargon for the pulpit where it's always a "show!"
