Love is not Rude

DSCN2827_edited-1

 Note: Rude was a difficult term to find in the Bible. Unseemly was in the King James’s text. It can be used in several ways, but more than likely in this case having to do with coarse conversation or jesting between loved ones. (unseemly, provoked, filthy)

 “If God puts no trust in His saints, And the heavens are not pure in His sight,  How much less man, who is abominable and filthy, Who drinks iniquity like water!” Job 15:15-16 (NKJV)

 Gills (filthy): “In his natural, corrupt, and unregenerate estate; man, as a creature, was not abominable, but becoming sinful he is; he is so in himself, cast out to the loathing of his person, being full of wounds, bruises, and putrefying sores, yea, like a dead corrupted carcass, for he is dead in trespasses and sins,”

“But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away.”(to the believer) Isaiah 64:6 (NKJV)

 Gills (filthy): ‘but of the righteousness’s of the church herself; not of the righteousness of Christ, which was made hers by imputation; for this is not rags, but a robe, the best robe, and wedding garment;”

Our Hope:
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”  2 Corinthians  5:12
