Many a people in the Body of Christ have separated into segregated name-tagged buildings because of different doctrinal beliefs. These people believe that error and truth are doctrinal issues and worthy of separating from family for. This has led to many a varied doctrine with many a varied opinion as to who God is and what God is like.
The fact is...error and truth are not doctrinal issues...error and truth are spiritual issues.
We as people walk in error or truth depending on following the spirit or following the Spirit.
“By this test we can distinguish the Spirit of truth from the spirit of error” (1 John 4:6).
Therefore...people who have separated from the Body of Christ because of doctrinal difference and formed denominations based on those differences are following and flowing in, the spirit of error.
Thus...everything you hear from these people about God is NOT necessarily TRUE about God.
Thus...everything you hear from these people that is claimed to be Bible Truth is NOT necessarily Bible Truth.
Further more...knowing God, knowing the Gospel, knowing the Bible, knowing God’s plan for the Community of the Redeemed and the Community of Humanity is not based on having all our doctrinal ducks in a row...it is based on following the Spirit of Truth.
“But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might KNOW the things that were freely given to us by God (1 Cor. 2:12).
The question we all need to know the answer to is...Are we walking in the spirit...or...are we walking in the Spirit?
