Doth not wisdom cry? And understanding put forth her voice? She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. O ye simple understand wisdom: and ye fools be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an adomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing forward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the forward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understaing; I have strength. By me Kings reign, and Princes decree justice. By me Princes rule, and Nobles, even all the Judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgement: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When He prepared the heavens, I was there; when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When He established the clouds above: when He strengthened the fountains of the deep: When He gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when He appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by Him; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of His earth; and my delight were with the sons of men. Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye chrildren: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of My doors. For whoso findeth me, findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. Proverbs Chapter Eight

Jesus said:"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be find it. Matthew 7:13-14
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name sake. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and staff they comford me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
           Matthew 7:21-27; Jesus said, "Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderfull works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.                                                                                                                       Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain decended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain decended, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it".
       The day recorded in the Bible that Ussa was killed; 1 Chonicles 13, was because when King David consulted with the Captains of thousands and hundreds and with every leader  they over looked the Law of Moses in their zeal to God. but we must ask what made God angry? We find the reason in a section of the law of Moses instructing how the ark of the covenant must be transported (Exodus 25:10-15). God specifically ordered that there were to be rings on the ark with poles through them. By these poles the priests could carry the ark without touching the ark itself.
But the people agreed and "the thing was right in the eyes of all the people" (1Ch 13:3-4). Now note the next thing we read: "They carried the ark of God on a new cart" (1Ch 13:7). This is how the Philistines had transported the ark on the advice of their priests, the priests of Dagon. Following that example, David and the people transported the ark from its keeping place to Jerusalem. The new cart was driven by Uzzah.
                                                                                                                                                                       In the tenth chapter of Romans, the apostle Paul says, talking about the house of Israel. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God; but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.                I want to give a little Bible lesson on truth. 1 Peter 4:11; if any man speaks let him speak as the oracles (very words) of God. In the last page of chapter three, "What Drives Your Life", Rick Warren surmises what God will ask us in the resurrection of the dead. Then he says "God won't ask about your religious background or doctrinal views. The only thing that will matter is, did you accept what Jesus did for you and did you learn to love him"? These statements are simply not true and I will prove it from the word of God. First and most important is whether we are in a saved position or still in a lost position. In Romans 6:16-18, Know ye not not,to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey;whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you, Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. In John 7:16-17, Jesus answered them and said, my doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. In Hebrews 6:1-2, we can read what the doctrine is. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. The apostle John wrote whosoever transgressrth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 2 John veres 9-11. After speaking from the Word of God going back to what Rick Warren said. "God won't ask about your  religious background and doctrine".listen to this; 1John 4:1 Beloved believe not every sprit, but try the sprits whether they are of God:because many false prophets are gone out into the world. In the six verse: We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us: he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the sprit of truth, and the sprit of error. (So the truth from the Bible is your religious background and doctrine does matter). The truth again from the Bible; (if you change the doctrine of Christ you are in error and you lose God) which Rick Warren does preaching wrongly about the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. Rick Warren needs a Apuila and Priscilla to expound the way of God more perfectectly to him. Rick Warren believes to be born again is to believe and receive his Sprit: Page 58 of his book (The Purpose Driven Life). Again showing  that God is not with him, to be born again you must be buried with Christ through the doctrine of baptisms recorded in Hebrews 6:2, and in Romans the six chapter and so many other scriptures as we well know. You are saved when you are added to the Church; (Acts 2:47), you are not saved before you are added to the Church, you are not saved after you are added to the Church, and you are not saved when you join the Rick Warren's Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, or any other man made Church. Which is from the Bible which is Gods Word not mine. Rick Warren is in a lost condition and needs to be saved along with all those who went along with him.     David Robert Darrah,    Please continue to study the rest of the pages.
Happy is the man that findeth Wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
Isaiah 5:20-23, Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
My name is David Robert Darrah I was born 1939 and I was born again 1979 into the Church of Christ that meets in Chester Pa. I have been studing the Bible all that time. My ancestors were Methodist, Lutherans and Presbyterians. My wife and I have been married thirty years. I served my country in the Marine Corps, I am skilled in working with steel (welding for twenty years, Shipyard, Boilermaking), concrete( I had my own bussiness) wood,  working as a carpenter  and of course I am a preacher of the truth. I have done many things and seen good and bad. I have health, length of days, long life and peace through the commandments of God. The abilty to stay in a saved condition comes from God, but we have to do our part. I hope you examine the information in this website because its all Bible. I have put none of my imagination into it. I want to live forever and for God to work out for the good for me in this life and I sincerely want this for you also.
