Gilbert House Fellowship #415: Proverbs 15

THE WISDOM of a gentle reply seems especially appropriate in this day of flame wars on social media.

If there is a theme to Proverbs 15, it is that we do well to think before we speak (or post) and be open to correction.

We also discuss a verse that, taken in context with other verses in the Old Testament, suggests a link between Abaddon and Tartarus:

Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORD;
  how much more the hearts of the children of man!

Proverbs 15:11 (ESV)

In short, we think Abaddon is to Sheol as Tartarus is to Hades.
