In response to Karl Wendelin of Oberlin:
In Gen. 12 vs. 3, the Lord is speaking to Abram: "And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee, and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." Titus, Chapter 1:15: "Unto the pure all things are pure, but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving, but even their mind and conscience is defiled." Tim 3:7. "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
