Proverbs 11 OutlineBusiness dealings related to: Vs. 1-8, Integrity.Vs. 9-14, Speech. Vs. 15-23, Wisdom. Vs. 24-26, Giving. Vs. 27-32, Motivation.
Prov 11:11 speech in business., links the welfare of people inhabiting a certain location to their moral values, in this case regarding sins of the tongue versus honesty and integrity in speech in business.
If a majority of the people are operating in righteousness the city is exalted, if the majority are operating in sin, (e.g., sins of the tongue), the city is destroyed.
It is man trying to solve all the problems of life with human systems, power, resources and assets, rather than trusting in God and making decisions from the strength of Bible Doctrine in the soul.
He recognizes the power of God and His Word to solve his own and collective problems. He utilizes “Pivot Politics” as the solution to collect problems.
Power Politics uses peace and love propaganda to achieve its goals and if that does not work they resort to violence, tyranny, terror, and revolution to achieve their ends.
They operate on emotion rather than thinking from Bible Doctrine in the soul, which causes them to stop thinking because “big brother” will take care of all their needs.
Pivot Politics includes regeneration, advance in the Plan of God through PMA of Bible doctrine, attaining maturity, and becoming part of the pivot which preserves a locale.
Power Politics represents collective human viewpoint. Its approach to crisis includes alliance and compromise with evil, the welfare state, communism and terror.
Yet, Pivot Politics represents personal solution to disaster through personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Cf. Mat 26:51-52
