Let's take some time to talk about 1 Corinthians 13:11 today. It says "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." This is a particular favorite verse of mine, so I thought I'd take some time to preach on it.

I don't mind holy fun. Staying up late and drinking coffee and having desserts in fellowship with other believers is fine. However, we don't condone sinful "fun" like alcohol, dancing, and lewd comments and actions. This corrupt society and so-called "Christians" partake of these things. Can you tell me why grown adults get drunk and urinate outside and make jokes about it? The Bible even says that " And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends." in 1 Kings 16:11. CHILDREN URINATE OUTSIDE AND SPEAK GIBBERISH! WHY DO ADULTS WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE MATURE GO AND GET DRUNK OF STRONG DRINK AND DO THE SAME THING?! PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS AND FIND A TOILET AND SOCIALIZE SOBER! HAVE A BIBLE STUDY! STOP GOING TO PUBS AND ACTING LIKE IMMATURE COLLEGE STUDENTS! GOD HATETH STRONG DRINK! DRINK WATER!!!!!!!! BE MATURE AND SHOW SOME RESPECT FOR YOURSELF!

A common problem with marriages these days is that women are neglected while men salivate over sports and video games and they consume strong drink with their buddies! Think they're all manly when their wives are over there lonely! You were already weak enough that you succumbed to your lust and married to avoid fornication! Why are you now neglecting your wife for childish garbage? Kids play sports and video games! PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS AND PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Women can't stop gossiping about others! 30 year old women are in the office gossiping about others like immature catty high school yuppies! An abomination unto the Lord is someone who IS A BUSYBODY AND CANNOT PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS AND PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD!!!!!!!!!

PEOPLE WONDER WHY SOCIETY HAS DENIGRATED TO THE POINT THAT OUR PRESIDENT IS A CREEPY OLD PERVERT WHO CANNOT PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS AND HAD BRAGGED ABOUT UNRIGHTEOUS GENITAL GRABBING AND RATES WOMEN BASED UPON THEIR PHYSICAL APPEARANCES LIKE AN IMMATURE RANDY MIDDLE SCHOOL BOY! WHAT A SIMPLETON! GOD HATETH AMERICA BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT PASSES OFF AS A CHRISTIAN IN THIS CORRUPT SOCIETY! PORNOGRAPHY IS ILLEGAL AND OBSCENE BUT IT REMAINS ONLINE! GROWN MEN PLAY SPORTS AND VIDEO GAMES AND WATCH CARTOONS! WHEN ARE WE GOING TO PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS AND HAVE A GROWN UP SOCIETY THAT IS MATURE AND GODLY? IT NEEDS TO START NOW!!!!!!!!! God's people said AMEN!
