It is very hard to learn

(Letters of J. C. Philpot <>)
Where we err is, that we want to be something,
when we are nothing. We want in some way to
recommend ourselves to God, and do or be
something that we can be pleased with, and
which we think will therefore please Him.

It is very hard to learn . . .
the depth of our spiritual poverty,
the greatness of our sin, and
our thoroughly lost, ruined, and helpless condition.

It is a great lesson, and yet a painful one, to be
made nothing; to feel one’s self weaker than the
weakest, and viler than the vilest; to be a pauper
living upon daily alms, and to be made often to
beg, and yet sensibly to get nothing.

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
of whom I am the worst.” 1Ti 1:15

“I am less than the least of all God’s people.”
Eph 3:8

“I am nothing.” 2Co 12:11

Most people buy a cup of coffee many times during a year. I spend my time and money writing good doctrinal content, and I am finding and formatting good old books for the Christian public to use in their studying the Bible. I have Bible college degrees where I have studied Greek and Hebrew. I have had donations over the years, but usually it is very little, like once every 6 months to once a year sometimes. One of my sites (I have 34 sites, about half are in English and the rest in Spanish) costs me about $10/month per site. Because the rent for having these sites on the Internet comes due every month, I have to pay it out of what me and my wife have to pay rent and food. Please consider a donation of any amount. Just a donation of the price of a cup of coffee can greatly help us with these costs and assure that new material is always coming.
