The Stubborn Frowards

More modern versions of the Bible translate the word froward as stubborn. 

Jesus told them, “A prophet has little honor in his hometown, among his relatives, on the streets he played in as a child.” Jesus wasn’t able to do much of anything there—he laid hands on a few sick people and healed them, that’s all. He couldn’t get over their stubbornness.

(Mark 6:4-6, NIV) 

How stubborn are we?

Still later, as the Eleven were eating supper, he appeared and took them to task most severely for their stubborn unbelief, refusing to believe those who had seen him raised up.

 Then he said, “Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God’s good news to one and all. 

Whoever believes and is baptized is saved; whoever refuses to believe is damned.

(Mark 16:14-16, NIV)

Friends, please tell me you are not a FROWARD person. Oh, please, not that!
