Since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.- 1 Peter 4:1 (1 Peter 4:1-4)
If we be prepared ter suffer and ter face abuse with tha same attitude of tha Son, then we be proving we agree with tha Son and Skipper in all thar words and deeds. Tha Son faced abuse and worse on account of Skipper’s Code of Conduct. We should do likewise. Our suffering be evidence we believe Skipper’s condemnation of sin. Our willingness ter suffer fer a feller we ne’er met but only believe in on account of some old book we read, be evidence we cling ter tha hope that tha Son kin set us free from sin.
Tha Son suffered in his body fer doing tha right thing by offering Skipper’s truth through love. Skip’s Law without love be like offering a thirsty feller water from a salt spring. It ‘ill only leave his soul more parched. Only Skipper’s Truth offered in Skipper’s Love kin revive a body. Bring tha Son’s living water ter folks. Make it yer task ter suffer in this way.
If ya suffer fer holding ter Skipper’s Holy Code of Conduct then ya prove ya place more value on yer soul than body. If ya der things ter please yer body and gratify tha lust of tha flesh, then ya prove ya put more value on yer body than soul.
We all ‘ave spent enough time in tha past wandering around in darkness following tha ways of tha devil. Folks that follow tha ways of that black-hearted devil live ter gratify all manner of sexual perversions with a continual lust fer more. They get drunk, carouse about, participate in orgies, and prove they worship thar own self by participating in all manner of detestable acts which a decent feller dare not mention.
Folks of this sort think it strange we doth not plunge in with them in ter tha same flood of dissipation. And when we do not, they heap all sorts of abuse on us.
Be separated mentally and morally from all who promote such vile behavior. Skipper ‘as judged such folks in tha past with floods and fire from heaven and wild beasts and snakes. He ‘ill do so again, of this ya kin be sure. Yer faith be rooted in a person: tha Son. Yer faith be rooted in tha knowledge of tha Son and this comes from Skipper’s Code of Conduct. Arm yer self with tha same attitude of tha Son and Skipper and ya ‘ill escape tha flames of hell, ya may lay ter that.
