Welcome

Dave Roth, AuthorIt is my pleasure to once again welcome you to The Seeker's Network. If you have been a regular visitor to our web page, you will have noticed that it has drastically changed. Our web host had a server problem and lost all of our content along with the backups. This means that I will have to begin from scratch. I originally had over 3,000 daily bible studies for you to use. This was more than ten years of work, so it will take some time to restore them.

My intentions are for this site to be a blessing for anyone who is seeking knowledge, whether you are a novice to the Christian faith or a teacher, pastor, evangelist or just a serious student. I will soon begin posting daily bible studies again and rebuilding our bible study library along with daily devotions and other content, so please check back frequently.

The books of Matthew and Genesis are now complete. There are nearly 700 daily studies posted. I have also posted many pages from the book of 1 Corinthians. This is an ongoing study that I have been posting on my Facebook page. These daily studies will be posted below. I am also working on the books of Colossians and Exodus. The first of those studies can also be found in my Bible Study Library in the side bar of this page.

Thank you and may God bless you for your interest and patience with this inconvenience.

Dave Roth
Author, Web master, and Pastor

The Discipline Problem

2 Corinthians 7:8-9

8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.


Before your father spanked you when you were a child, did he ever say, "Believe me, this is going to hurt me more than it is going to hurt you!" That is probably not the best thing to say before the discipline, but it reflects what Paul was trying to say after he had written the first letter reprimanding the Corinthian church for the disorder within their congregation.

"For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent,.." He knew when he wrote the letter that it was bound to cause them some grief, as any type of reprimand is bound to do. At the writing of this second letter, however, he had no remorse, because the results that his words produced were exactly what he had hoped for. Sometimes a good spanking is necessary to emphasize the seriousness of the offense. The benefits are not immediately seen, because they are intended to change future behavior.    Read More
