Vintage Valentine’s day cards

JP: I found these at Valentine’s Day. See my comments below:


“Weddings now are all the go, Will you marry me or no”


“R stands for rod, which can give a smart crack, And ought to be used For a day on your back.”


“My dearest Miss, I send thee a kiss”

Comments:

  • “Weddings now are all the go, Will you marry me or no”. Wow! This gets right to the point! Kind of forward!
  • “R stands for rod, which can give a smart crack, And ought to be used For a day on your back.” Had I given this one to Kathee she would have “given me a smart crack”. Not recommended!
  • “My dearest Miss, I send thee a kiss”. Sends a dry kiss! About right!

God’s love -(all from I John):

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! (3:1)

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us (3:16)

God is love (4:8 )

In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. (4:9)

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins (4:10)

We love Him because He first loved us (4:19)

JP: Below the “Irish Calvinist” warns about trivializing the Gospel:

Now God is Sending me Valentine’s Day Cards?

Excerpt:

God does indeed love sinners. This is the glorious truth of the gospel. But we cannot detach God’s love from the context of the gospel that teaches us about how he demonstrates that love, indeed what the love of God is really like! The glory of God, sinfulness of man, faithfulness of God to his promises, the glory saturated resolve of Jesus, the desperate plight of humanity, the exclusivity of Christ, all of these things shine forth brightly in the gospel and demand to not be dimmed by our dim understanding.
