Proverbs 1

The book of Proverbs is a collection of sayings that was written by Solomon. Unlike most sayings these are rooted in the commandments of God which means they have wisdom. 1st Chronicles 22:12 Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God.” This was the desires of king David for his son Solomon. Most people take the words of this book as advice, or instructions that are not obligatory to keep. However when reading the first few chapters; you will notice that Solomon writes as a concerned father teaching his son. A repeated statement is, Proverbs 3:1 “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:” The doctrine of Churchianity is to invent sayings that are not found within the Bible, for the purpose of dismissing the laws of God. Solomon who was the wisest man and even wrote of Christ in the book of Proverbs said, Proverbs 4:2 “For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.”
