Standards



This collage of national standards makes for great wallpaper on your PC. Just thought you good folks would like to have a thread dedicated to talking about the flags of the world!

"Hummmmmm" such a catchy title for a post.

I don't know much about all these flags, but I once heard a Preacher preach about Standards on a paperwood hauling truck, and why it was important to have them, and the necessity for having them, and what would happen if they weren't there. But on with the show.

Who set the standard for the order in which these flags were laid out?

Isaiah 59:19 (KJV) 19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Please tell me you're not insinuating that this has anything at all to do with outward dress standards . . .

The 'standard' mentioned there is a flag... something armies bring into battle. In other words, "the Lord will lift up his flag before us and cause the enemy to flee"

Has nothing to do with dress standards or any other 'holiness standards' in any way, shape or form...
