Scripture of the Day - Peter (IPet.4:17-18)

I have always found this passage rather ominous as it indeed is in light of the fact that Peter is writing it to the church scattered across the Roman Empire which will soon face the wrath of Rome. He is also, wittingly or unwittingly, writing it to us in this Age.
"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it starts with us, what shall be the fate of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely survive, how shall the wicked fair?" ~ First Peter 4:17-18 (Kimicus ad Absurdum translation)


  1. It is, indeed, a timeless passage, and one that constantly pinches my rear, reminding me to do better.

  2. Kim, St. Peter is writing to us at every age not just this one. And times have been worse. We are lucky. Allison
