So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. (2 Corinthians 5:9) What if you discovered (like the Pharisees did), that you had devoted your whole life to trying to please God, but all the while had been doing things that in God’s sight were abominations (Luke 16:14-15)?

Praise Jesus, also a rather well selected list of verses in my opinion all glory to God, it is quite a list of hard verses to process. I did not want to call it negative because all the Bible is positive especially for those who love God, just some things are a bit hard to work through, though they can often times be what is most needed for our growth too. Alright if you have any question put them in comments and i hope to upload a project with source code to how these were produced hopefully by the weeks end. The name of the Lord be praised Jesus Christ is coming soon!

I left out two verses that are out of place, one because i am not handling the logic of Beware, and the other because the algorithm does not handle context so while the verse sounds positive it actually isn’t, but i wanted to have the above list that for the most part i think is chosen rather well. The verses left out and their scorings would be (latter verse would not count the former in its numbering). (p.s. There is at least one more verse that is quite out of context above, can you spot it?)
18) Acts 8:10: They all paid attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the power of God that is called Great. (speaking here of simon the sorceror)
32) Luke 20:46: Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts,

God be praised for from His mouth proceeds knowledge and understanding (Proverbs 2:6)
When i was working at Crowdstar i met lots of neat and intelligent people, one guy Ian got me started on R with a perhaps 15 minute overview and i thought a lot of concepts were kind of neat (thanks Ian! and may all thanks be to God!) I finally sat down to try to work at it thinking i wanted to try out some basic twitter sentiment analysis on the Bible. The idea is that, using the ESV2011 version which is available free for personal use in various packages, i output the content with libswords diatheke program with some text formatting manipulations in the shell (bash/zsh). For each ‘line’ i then used ruby-stemmer to steam each word, and grabbed a copy of SentiWordNet (praise God for this!) and also stemmed every word, and created an output file with each line containing only the stemmed words that had some kind of Sentiment data for it. Then again using ruby, a json was created with an array for each line, with all the matching Senti words and scores for each word in the line, the mean of the positive and (hardness) and objectivity (1-(pos+hard)) of all the matching Senti words for each word, and a summation of all the means for the sentence. It is a little less exact for very many words have many meanings and can be verbs or nouns or adjectives at different times, i have not created a dataset to identify the most specific Senti words at this point.
I am thankful to God for part of a course i took on Coursera on Machine learning many years ago which helped me understand some of the basics like stemming. Using R we can quickly analyze the data using jsonlite to create dataframe representations of the data. At this point i am of course a beginner at R, and the json data is not normalized so it is rather large. I want to post what i think are a neat list of the new testaments 40 most positive verses, which i want to dedicate (glory to God) to my dearly beloved Hannah who has gone through a very hard time and could use prayers and hopefully this is encouraging too, and also 40 ‘hardest’ verses in the new testament according to the above simple Sentiment Analysis technique. In the ‘hardest’ verses i removed the negation verses (verses containing Not) as i have not handled negation logic for sentiments yet. I will do so in the future. I also hope to compare analysis of the Bible old testament vs new testament, different books in the Bible, and to other popular works and preachers hoping to not draw too quickly conclusions from it.
God guide us and bless you in Jesus name
Schaeffer Cox wrote this letter from his prison cell in Marion, Ill. It was posted to the “Stand by Schaeffer Cox” Facebook page by Maria Rensel, who has been corresponding with Cox. Dear Sensible People of a Candid World, My name is Francis August Schaeffer Cox.
God is good, this is quite a surprising situation. I am not fully sure what to think of the 2nd Amendment, but it is the law in the United States. From some videos of FBI whistle blowers it seems to me plausible that Schaeffer is telling the truth. May God help him, as well as all the people involved in convicting to come to repentance and love of the truth as well as all i may ask, i understand from Scripture i am worthy of the hottest hell apart from the grace of God may God who is good guide us in Jesus name.
5/6/17 (Letter from August 2016) Hi, I’m in the hole. It’s every bit as bad as it sounds. I’m sitting on concrete, naked and alone in the dark, writing you after 15 days of trying to get your address. I’ll get to that in a minute.
