But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matthew 15:9
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. John 4:23
We must be discerning of the true Word and wary of those who seek to amend, supplement, and take out of context the true Word of God. This is why the Lord commands us to “come out of the world” because it is …easier to follow man’s version of God than the Truth. The Bible must be the standard against all other things are measured, because either the Bible is sufficient or it is just another book and means nothing.
Men are filled with empty platitudes, and self righteous advice they themselves cannot even follow. They pretend they have all the answers, that they can “save the world” and “heal the planet” and “secure peace” when men are weak, self centered, selfish, egotistical, devious and deceitful.
God has a way for us to weather the storm of deceit and chaos around us, while preparing ourselves for a much greater glory than could ever be found on this earth. Today when so much seems chaotic, it is comforting to know a God that is solid, dependable, compassionate and loving and to see clearly when and where men create confusion.
