Initial Draft (12/8/14) of the Final Week of our Sunday Study charts are posted below:
To be clear, the Great Life Formula (GLF) is NOT taught in Scripture, though many texts can be mis-interpreted as teaching it. The Book of Proverbs is filled with advice that has a practical life application. However even such examples are not “formulas” that control God, and so, determine one’s own prosperity. There is an important reason why “Fear of the LORD” begins and end the Book of Proverbs and, as shown below, occurs throughout the Book: such “fear” is the awe we have when we fully recognize that God is the Sovereign One, and we are neither sovereign, nor ‘co-sovereign’ with God (as though such a corrupted meaning of “sovereignty” even makes sense).
So, considering just Chapter 14 of the Book of Proverbs, as given in the below and final two charts, one’s own study should NOT lead to a conclusion that some version of the Great Life Formula as espoused by Job’s 3 friends (and Elihu) exists.
