Bible Verse Sunday #42, Autumnal Equinox 2013, and New Primary Ignition Review

Today's verse is Jeremiah 17:9:

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?"

The ESV Study Bible has this to say on the verse:

"heart. A metaphor for the human will and emotions (cf. vv.5-7). deceitful. Tortuous, uneven, and crooked like a bad road. desperately sick. Medically incurable (15:18; 30:12, 15; Job 34:6; Isa. 17:11; Mic. 1:9). who can understand it? A rhetorical questions expecting a negative answer. However, this strongly negative assessment of the human heart is not intended as a description of the heart of a a believer under the new covenant, where God promises to write his law on people's hearts (Jer. 3133; 32:40; cf. Ezek. 35:26; Rom. 5:5; 6:17; Heb. 10:22; 1 John 3:21)."

In church today, the pastor in the main service spoke about the difference between godly wisdom and earthly wisdom, and how to experience spiritual growth through Christ alone. We continued in our study in Colosians. In the High School service, the youth pastor taught from 1 Samuel, telling of the fall of the house of Eli, and how we should not make the mistake of the Israelites, who treated the Ark of the Covenant in a superstitious manner. 

Today was also the Autumnal Equinox. As of 1:45 P.M. or so, Summer is officially over, and we are now in the season of Autumn, more commonly known as Fall. In sync with this last day of summer, the first day of classes at Bellevue College is tomorrow, and I eagerly await my coming class. Many of my friends will be attending classes at the college (you know who you are), and I hope to see some of them tomorrow.

The final bit of news I have for today is a new review I recently published over at Primary Ignition. This time, I've reviewed Aquaman, Volume 2: The Others, and let me tell you, it was pretty sweet. It's the best thing I've yet to see come out of the New 52.
