If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded will learn a lesson, if you reprove the wise they will be all the wiser.

Children who mistreat their fathers or chase away their mother are a public disgrace and an embarrassment.

If you stop listening to instruction, my child, you have turned your back on knowledge.

Where would being poor and a fool fit in on that spectrum?

Your bible is really an excellent guide for making life decisions.

A corrupt witness makes a mockery of justice, the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.

Mockers will be punished the backs of fools will beaten.

True, Grasshopper, but is it not also true that a person who moves too slowly may go the wrong way? Surely this is wisdom.

LOL.

You mock the wisdom of the scriptures?

That one caught my eye, too. Apparently, anything passes for wisdom if it's in the book and written sententiously, however inane.

"It's better let a fool kiss you than to let a kiss fool you."

"A kiss is shopping upstairs for downstairs merchandise."

"A man with five dicks will have pants that fit like a glove."

Any of those could be in the bible.

Sorry, Epi. This may be encouraging, but it is a false promise. And obviously so. What else have you been promised from the same source?

I know - I'm a horrible. demon infested person for pointing out the obvious.

Are we to assume that the instruction is factual and correct?

...because you know...not all instruction is beneficial.

...the proverb itself seems somewhat narrow and arbitrary...just sayin'...

I think you're describing something called 'cherry-picking' or 'quote-mining' where you keep the bits you like and disregard the bits you don't.

What you just said seems to fly in the face of every christian who has ever said, "you must read the bible as a whole, you cannot just pick isolated parts".

So which is it? Keep what I want or take the bible as a whole?

HFY...Is that a Social thing in that area of China?
I wouldn't know. I'm from Japan. Perhaps River would know?

But, ah, food is generally a "social thing" wherever you are, so I would guess yes.

Let's hope Catcher can tell us of his adventures!
