I just want to share a quick story which I think has a huge lesson in it. There was preacher who really loved the word of God and one time Jesus(the resurrected Christ) appeared to him and was talking to him about something. Now this is what the preacher answered: Jesus, even though I see you face to face, I will not accept what you are saying unless you give me scripture to prove it. Jesus did not get angry and say how dare you question my theology but actually smiled and told him that even though in the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses every word is to be established(2 Cor. 13:1), He was going to give him 4 of them to prove his point and He did. The bible says that let God be true and every man be a liar (Romans 3:4) and also that therefore I esteem thy precepts right concerning everything (Psalm 119:128). Would you like to be a noble man or woman? The bible says that the people of Berea were more nobles because they searched the scriptures to see if the things preached were so (Acts 17:11). We are also admonished to speak as the oracles of God 1 Peter 4:11). We have got to read the bible until our vocabulary is so influenced by the word, until we become walking, talking bibles. People who open their mouth and the scriptures leap out. John the baptist of whom it was said that there was none greater than him among those that are born of women, looking at Jesus (the word) said I MUST decrease and He must increase. Friends,we must esteem highly what the bible says over the doctrines and traditions men. If God’s people will read the word as they ought all the controversies will disappear. BUT what saith the scripture: Should I dance to the Lord? should i speak in tongues? should I prophesy? should I homeschool ? and the list goes on. Let me encourage you to search the scriptures and all the doubts will be no more. Father we are in need of you, come to our help we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
