Preach What We Want to Hear!

The Lord told me to write down his message for his people, so that it would be there forever.  They have turned against the Lord and can't be trusted. They have refused his teaching and have said to his messengers and prophets:Don't tell us what God has shown you and don't preach the truth. Just say what we want to hear, even if it's false.  Stop telling us what God has said! We don't want to hear any more about the holy One of Israel.  Now this is the answer of the holy One of Israel: “You rejected my message, and you trust in violence and lies.

Isaiah 30:8-12

The problem with "organized religion" is that it establishes a group of favorite doctrines and then encourages it's members to search the scriptures to confirm that those doctrines are indeed true. When was the last time you found something in the Bible that no one had ever told you? Do you establish your beliefs based on what men say about the Bible or on what the Bible actually says?

The fact that there are many Christian denominations in the world today is testimony to the fact that people are encouraged to establish their faith on what teachers say about the Bible rather than on what the Bible actually says.

When you are hearing from God and putting your faith and practice firmly on His Word you will find yourself striving to be obedient to the Word of God, not to the opinions of men, even godly men.

As you search the Word of God check your own heart and make sure you are not looking for the confirmation of what you believe rather than looking for the truth of God which will establish everything you embrace!

"Lord Jesus help me today to seek Your Word above every other opinion in this world. And may I establish every doctrine in my heart on what You have said and not on what men have said about Your Word. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
