Thank you so very much for sharing with us your Church sign Pastor Richard Mansfield of New Beginnings Church in Albuquerque!

God’s Word has a lot to say about flattery…….

May the LORD cut off their flattering lips and silence their boastful tongues. Psalm 12:3

He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him. Daniel 11:32

In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin. Psalm 36:2

A man who flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet. Proverbs 29:5

Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart; when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart; though his hatred be covered with deception, his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling. A lying tongue hates its victims, and a flattering mouth works ruin. Proverbs 26: 24-28
