be careful what you eat

Just because someone tells you that something is good for you does not mean that they are right.  People will tell you all kinds of things.  Preachers tell people all kinds of things.  Not all of it is true.

1 John 4 says that we should test the spirits.  Is what you are being taught historically true?  Is what you are being taught rooted in the good news of the gospel or in fear?

I find it so interesting that if you tell someone something long enough, they will start to believe it.  You can tell them green is blue.  They will fight you for a while.  Their children won't and their grandchildren will believe that green has always been blue.

There are things that some churches teach that have been taught for 100 years so everyone swallows the stuff as if it has always been true, when the church goes back another 1900 years prior to the particular teaching!

Test the spirits.  Keep your paradigm open so that you can walk away from fabrication and walk towards the grace of God.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
