See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
To many have their own idea of what life is all about, but they don’t really have a clue. Especially those who do not follow after the faith we hold in Christ. We can’t take the thoughts of men who are so smart, but you can see they are so confused in their own selves by the stuff they do that is not righteous.
The smartest people in the world believe that it is Ok to be this drastic with what they believe, to the point of going against everything that makes so much sense from the stand point of faith in God.
When we hear the phlosoohies of men amd wjat they think iver the actual active Word of God. Then that is the reason people are confused and doubtful, even in their faith in God. A person who is philisophical in their beliefs, they are just as bad as a false prophet who leads the people of God astray.
Thoughts on divorce that is based upon some Scripture, but mostly based on societies free liberal mindsets. Philosophy is nothing but a big question being asked in small chunks of thought, that the person asking cannot articulate affectively enough so that the answer can be given.
We have the right to question God, but know that you do that at a tremendous risk, because God has thought out His plan before you and I came along. He doesnt need our input or suggestion cards.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We can not become rotten inside because it is hard to press forward in Christ. The has kept us from all harm over the years and He will continie to do the same, if we remain in His hands and not in our own feelings.
God wants us at peace about it. We have to put our reliance upon the Soirit of God to convey our deepest emotions. I am very aware that He is has set His angels in charge of the realms we cnnot see. Thank the Lord He takes care of that portion.
We can be at peace in this life no matter what people do or say to us. We donot have to hear the negative side of the politics and church gossip along with tabloid mess of the so called stars. It is time for a newness of life to spring forth and give us bright day, if we look for it beyond where we sit or stand. Christ is preserving us till the day of His return for the Church (Saints and Beleivers) who have taken His name as their own to represent.
If He cant preserve us, then we will be rooten to the core and possibly unrecoverable by Spiritual standards. It would take insanity to get you and I out of the grip of the devil, if we keep going in the darkness and not turn on our lights.
Sanctification is a purity that we avoid. Just like Holy, blameless, and perfect. We cannot do any of this without the Savior Jesus as our example and continued help to maintain these qualities. In ourselves we know we would fail daily and some of us do, because we do not work at keeping the Word of God before our eyes.
The Word of the Lord will keep us from sin and shame. The Soirit in us reminds us that we donot have to be full of condemnation.
Don’t be condemned and destroy your own house, your temple, but remain in Him amd live this life for God all the day long.
