Sometimes as Christians we need to say, “Enough is enough!” when it comes to the Word of God and someone attempting to tell us what we should “believe in”. I have always felt that being a Believer, with the Holy Spirit (Spirit of Truth) dwelling within me that I did not need someone to “interpret” what God was saying to me when I read the Holy Bible.
It is true that sometimes as “babies” in Christ, we need the wisdom of a mature Christian to guide us along and help us understand what the Word of God may be saying too us, but this is done through prayer and Christian Love.
Now I fully understand that, as human beings, we will never agree on all of the Christian Doctrines that make up all of the denominations of the world. That is why there so many different denominational churches out there.
I ran a check on the internet which provided a comprehensive overview of the diversity among denominations of Christianity. Would you believe that there are reported to be approximately 38,000 Christian denominations? Now do you see why so many people that are “lost souls” get so confused about what church to join, or what it takes for them to go to heaven. Note: Between denominations, theologians, and comparative religionists there are considerable disagreements about which groups can be properly called Christian, disagreements arising primarily from doctrinal differences between the groups.
I have surfed several hundred Christian Blogs over the past six months now and generally I see that their authors show genuine Christian love and concern for the “lost souls” of this world. Every one of us who operates a Christian Blog has this deep and affectionate love for our Lord Jesus Christ and we want to share that love with other people or otherwise we would not be blogging.
I truly believe that God has inspired each of us to go out (Using the internet) and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to tell everyone how they can have that intimate and personal relationship that we, as believers, have in our Lord.
This is why I think it is important not to “trash” or call other bloggers for Christ “False Teachers” or past judgment on their denominational church just because “they” don’t agree with your way of thinking regarding a church ordinance or what day of the week one should worship our Holy and Awesome God.
Starting today, I will not let the devil tempt me into believing that in order to win souls for Jesus, I need to “trash” or “cut-down” another Believer in Christ.
Father God, it is my prayer that I do not past judgment on any other Christian Blogger who may have a different point of view regarding church ordinances and church traditions. Lord just lead me to be a blessing to anyone who reads my blog. I continue to pray for discernment and the wisdom necessary to tell people about Jesus. Father God, continue to search my heart and soul for anything that would be stumbling blocks for anyone to come to you Lord. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
