Why do Believers Believe what they Believe.
Most people believe what they believe based on what they have been told by their denominated denomination's denominated seminarian schooled professional who is trained to teach the bible as to how it is interpreted by the denominational hierarchy he has credentials with.
We need to challenge our longstanding and entrenched traditional religious beliefs because, if our reason for believing what we believe is to be in the denomination's good books as to what it means to be a "good Christian" a member in good standing, then we are committing spiritual adultery and maybe believing a lie.
Believing what you believe because you have been told what to believe by people who believe what you believe is not the way you ought to believe.
John 4:42 says: Then they said to the woman,“Now we believe, not because of what you said...been told...for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.
There is power in believing, so make sure your believing is right believing so you won't be snared and empowered by wrong believing.
Let's believe what we believe because it is what Christ believes, that can only happen by having ears to hear the voice of God.
