Sometimes a comment will flash out of nowhere into your mind’s sky and the words will flame in your heart. That’s God’s voice!
Sermon hearing trains Christians to be passive. Now some preachers are telling people that grace means it’s okay to be passive and ignore the voice of God.
The Bible says that faith shouldn’t “rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.” Experiencing God’s power is convincing!
The Bible talks about the gifts of the Spirit, but not about the offices of the Spirit. Paul said that the Christians in Rome were “competent to instruct one another.” (It’s the same today if pastors would let them.) The Bible says, “Encourage one another.” One man was never meant to monopolize the ministry in a church meeting.
The Bible contrasts “words taught us by human wisdom” and “words taught by the Spirit.” They are not the same thing.
The Bible says: “No more boasting about human leaders,” and “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
The Bible says that the rulers of this age “are coming to nothing.” Perhaps we need more than politics.
I love unorganized faith
That freely flows
From people's hearts,
Instead of programs.
