Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
[Many put their trust in man instead of God. Look at how many today that put their trust in some man or woman instead of searching for the truth themselves. Don't be lazy and listen to a bunch of false teachers or hypocrites. God wrote you a personal letter, the Bible, to bring you out of bondage and into the freedom of truth. Study it like your soul depended on it. Will it be temporary or eternal? Smoking or non-smoking? Now that I think about it, your soul does depend on it].
Jeremiah 17:7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
[This verse is very easy to understand. Trust in the LORD. A much better choice].
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against [all] ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
[God will show His anger from heaven against “all” sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness, lying and deceit. Doesn't matter whether it is intentional or not. The result is the same. Beware of false teachers in the end times, today]. (For more guidance see Matthew 24:4, Mark 13:5, Luke 21:8 and I Timothy 4:1-2).
Where do you place your trust concerning salvation and truth? Hopefully not man and his traditions. Again, your choice friend! There is only one way you can learn truth. Study all of His word and discover the truth for yourself. His word is truth, John 17:17.
