a Quote from a Bible teacher:
"If the truth offends, then let if offend. People have been living their whole lives in offense to God. Let them be offended for a little while" JM
from a Hymn:
Pardon from an offended God, pardon for sin of deepest dye, pardon bestowed through Jesus blood, pardon that brings the rebel nigh. Who is a pard'ning God like Thee? And who has grace so rich and free?.... SD
from Jesus Christ:
Matthew 15:11-13 (NKJV) Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” Then His disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.
from the apostle Paul:
Romans 9:33 As it is written: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, And whoever believes on Him will not be disappointed.”
Galatians 5:11 And I, brethren, if I still preached circumcision, why would I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross would have ceased already.
