Things that people 
are controlled by
1 Peter 5.8
by Brother Johnny "The Baptist" Campbell B.A.D.F.

1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

As a believer, we are to have control of our lives, now if Satan gets the advantage of you, he is in conrol.
Ain't that right?  Nod your pointy little head.   AMEN, AMEN!

Many are controlled by their temper!

Uncontrolled anger will cause us to:
Shoot your tater trap off hastily (Proverbs 2911).
     *Hurt those you love because you're always right.
     *Jump to conclusions.
     *Damage your testimony when they see you fly off the handle at your wife and children

Many are controlled by their tongue

Boy, if that ain't a preacher, I'll eat your dirty socks!!!

The tongue is a fire:
James 3.5-6 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And
the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

The tongue is a poison:
James 3.8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of
deadly poison.

Many are controlled by their toddlers

HOLD IT! I mean your children in general.  But they could be your grown children too.  Because you're a sucker and have spaghetti for a backbone!  They run over you, and have as much respect for you as they have for a dog!


*Failure to teach -- you just hollered and they never saw nothing in your so called saved life.
*Fear to discipline -- now you love this, about the fear of whipping a child:  You say "I would go to jail if I spanked my kids."   You like that don't you?  It gives you an excuse to be a sorry parent.

Many are controlled by their treasures

Hello! Anybody home

Many are controlled by their thoughts

You know your stinking thinking!  AMEN!
