material for one SS session!
Well, it is!
So because of that, these notes are here for you
to study on your own!
Ecclesiastes - Solomon can save us all
a lot of school of "learning the hard way!'
And Solomon's own conclusion?
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his
commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every
work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether
it be evil. 12:13,14
Life without God
Have it all
However, it doesn't work - even for the rich who have "everything!"

All the world's philosophies 1:13,16 (I
Corinthians 1:19; 26-29; 2:14)- can be found in
materialism and education -
learn by experience - 2:3
phenomenalism - 2:10
- how YOU see it - your own perception and concept.
pessimism - 2:20
- stressing the negative / gloomiest view - Eyorism.
fatalism - 2:23
- predetermined by fate - you have no choice in the matter - unalterable
2:25 - all about yourself
pragmatism - 2:26
- if it works, then it must be right.
Go for it!
agnosticism - 3:11,12
- no 'truth' - no God - only how you perceive
theism - 3:14,15
- belief in God - all of God
naturalism - 16-18
- all explainable by natural causes, instinct
pantheism - 3:20
- worship of all gods - Deity is the universe
At the heart of pantheism is reverence of the
universe as the ultimate focus of reverence, and for the natural earth
Scientific or Natural Pantheism - Pan for
short - has a naturalistic approach which simply accepts and reveres the
universe and nature just as they are, and promotes an ethic of respect
for human and animal rights and for lifestyles that sustain rather than
destroy the environment.
When scientific pantheists say WE REVERE THE UNIVERSE
we are not talking about a supernatural being. We are talking about the
way our senses and our emotions force us to respond to the overwhelming
mystery and power that surrounds us.
We are part of the universe. Our earth was created
from the universe and will one day be reabsorbed into the universe.
paganism - 4:2
no religion - all based on personal
pleasure - hedonism
deism - 5:2,4,6,7
- God created and then let it go on it's own. No influence from God.
communism - 5:9
- collective ownership - labour for the
common man, controlled by the government that "knows best" for all.
capitalism - 5:12-14,
18,19 - a free market - make it work through
your own efforts, etc.
altruism - the doctrine that the highest good is
service to others
Objectivism - supports a free market with no government
intervention. Objectivism opposes welfare programs, censorship of any kind,
and both military and "national service" drafts.
Objectivism supports a strong separation between
church and state and between schools and state.
rationalism - 6:9,10
- reliance on reason.
Reason over authority (Bible Education), experience
(Pentecostals) or spiritual revelation (Great Commissionism)
"Each man should seek his own happiness through
a productive life in which his own independent, rational judgment is his
only guide to action."
- doubt - stressing uncertainty to oppose
dogmatism - absolute knowledge is unattainable. (Eyorism)
modernism - 9:7,8
- departure from the traditional way -
new, innovative forms of expression
existentialism - 11:7,8
- A philosophy that emphasizes the uniqueness
and isolation of the individual experience in a hostile or indifferent
universe, regards human existence as unexplainable, and stresses freedom
of choice and responsibility for the consequences of one's acts.
The message of existentialism, unlike that of
many more obscure and academic philosophical movements, is about as simple
as can be. It is that every one of us, as an individual, is responsibleóresponsible
for what we do, responsible for who we are, responsible for the way we
face and deal with the world, responsible, ultimately, for the way the
It is, in a very short phrase, the philosophy
of 'no excuses!' We cannot shift that burden onto God, or nature, or the
ways of the world. --Professor Robert Solomon
Ecclesiastical Proverbs of Wisdom
Spirit of man
1:15 - That which
is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot
Yes, the crooked can now be made straight!
Isaiah 40:4 -
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made
low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
Finally, the crooked will be kept straight!
Revelation 11:15 -
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of
his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Living without a comforter
3:21 - Who knoweth
the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth
downward to the earth?
A good sermon / bible study - the spirit of man
4:1 - So I
returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun:
and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter;
and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.
Sacrifice of fools
Hasty and rash mouth
Modern Christianity and worshipness today
5:1 - Keep thy
foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than
to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
7:5 - It is better
to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.
- God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord
of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is
worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth
to all life, and breath, and all things;
5:2,3 - Be not
rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing
before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy
words be few. For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and
a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
Lover of money
5:10,11 - He that
loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance
with increase: this is also vanity. When goods increase, they are increased
that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the
beholding of them with their eyes?
Goal of labour
Benefits of a death
6:7 - All the
labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled.
When a "ruler" or 'authority' is against you as you try to do doing
7:1-2 - A good
name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day
of one's birth. It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go
to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living
will lay it to his heart.
Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the
heart is made better. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning;
but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
Serpents and babblers
10:4 - If the
spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding
pacifieth great offences.
The beginning and the end of the lips of a fool
10:11 - Surely
the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
That rotten little bird
10:12 - The words
of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow
10:13 - The beginning
of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous
10:14 - A fool
also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall
be after him, who can tell him?
An old age description
10:20 - Curse
not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber:
for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings
shall tell the matter.
And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people
knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many
proverbs. The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which
was written was upright, even words of truth.
Without God, life is nothing but vexation of spirit
and all vanity - a life of despair full of false riches and empty desires.
But you know folks, with rightly dividing a KJB, you can either "prepare
It is your choice.
Learn from Solomon - but certainly don't try to be follow his example,
only his ensample;
God won't force anything on you!
Let Paul guide you to and through the Risen Christ! Romans
to Philemon - TO you - the rest is
there only FOR you!
or you will follow it right to the lake of fire today!
