"Let no one DECEIVE you with VAIN Words"
Isn't the character of God, the value of God, the purpose of God, the plan of God and the truth of God more important than religious assumptions and religious traditions about God?
Isn't loyalty to the character of God more important than loyalty to religious traditions, man-made institutions called "churches", man-made doctrine, man-made constitutions and man-made commandments?
If the Word (Jesus) shatters cherished beliefs, then are we willing to let them stay shattered, no matter how painful it is to our man-made doctrines. Isn’t God's Truth more important than personal belief, and loyalty to that Truth more important than loyalty to traditions, the commandments of men, or a "local church"?
When will we as believers be willing to drop all our pre-conceived ideas taught to us by denominated seminarians and ask the Lord for His wisdom and discernment and get back on the right track, acknowledge Him is Head and be taught truth by His appointed teacher, His Holy Spirit. It is only then we will be on the right path to learning what is truth and what is error.
Ir is only then will we believe the truth that God will teach us, regardless of what we have been taught by men's vain philosophies and deceptions that we have accepted as truth.
