“WHAT DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE?”

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness”  2Timothy 3:16 NIV

 

Read:  2Timothy 3:10-17

 

“If you believe only what you like in the gospel, and reject all you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe but yourself.” (Augustine)

 

A great preacher once said most our trust in the Bible is like Bible roulette.   We are content with most, but we will try to dodge the bullet of truth.

 

What do you really believe?    Do you believe all of the Bible or do you pick and choose?   While some practice forgetting certain Biblical instructions, others create their own teachings which are not from scripture.

 

Proverbs 30:5-6 tell us;

“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.  Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.”

 

Too many are creating doctrine that does not come from scripture.   Some are ignoring GOD’S word and adding their own.  It doesn’t take long to see this new doctrine is not what GOD has told us.

 

How do you feel about abortion, sex outside of marriage, same sex relationships, pornography, drug use or other society accepting actions?   Are you feeling the same as GOD instructed?   If you are accepting of any of these things, do you feel you are more right than GOD?

 

Today’s prayer:  “MY GOD, help me to stand firm in all YOU have taught me.   Help me to accept all of YOUR Word and turn from those who would ignore YOUR promises and instructions.  Amen.”
