We do error…do we?






And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in [their] heart; and they have not known my ways. Mr 12:24, Mr 12:27, Heb 3:10

In reality, wouldn’t you agree that we all walk in some form of error? Only for the sheer fact that we can’t possibly know all the scriptures, nor all the power of God. If we are ever being transformed more into the image of Jesus and His redemptive work is working right up to the pearly gates, then it would be safe to say we are not completely in our perfect state until the day we step into heaven.

Well that brings me to a new perspective. If we gave one another grace for not knowing everything, or maybe not even understanding scriptures the way someone else does, would it be safe to say we should not judge or accuse so quickly?

For instance, let’s say there is a preacher and he gives his message and he puts something in a way  that is different from the way we understand it, do we automatically accuse him of heresy or do we ask him what he meant by that? Maybe we buy a book and the author seems off on what he is trying to communicate to his readers, do we instantly ban this man as a false teacher or do we investigate to understand his heart and where he is coming from?

I just don’t understand if we all walk in some form of error, wouldn’t the saying be appropriate that you shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house?

I think we should be very careful when we want to publically defame someone without first gathering facts, going to that person in love to ask where they were coming from, or even making sure we heard it correctly. Many of times we all have been in a place that we did not do a good job communicating a point or thought. Would we not want someone coming to us and giving us the respect of hearing us out before chastising us? What about the benefit of the doubt? What do we fear that we react this way? Jesus didn’t walk around cursing others the way we do, did He? I don’t know, I just asking? :)

Bottom line, do we know that person intimately, do we know their heart? Do we know if they belong to God or not?

We have many critical Christians who act as if they are serving a God that is dead but he is living and the Scriptures tell us they do greatly err. Is that error any different than the error of not knowing the Scriptures? How about the Scriptures that tells us we grieve God because we are in error not knowing His ways. I just feel led to say, we all justify why we feel we can tear down a Christian writer, speaker, pastor but never give that individual the opportunity to unveil his heart. The Bible says if you have ought against your brother we should go to him. Do we follow Gods principles even if the person is across the states or world? Rather than “warn” others of a statement we heard, have we rallied others to pray for this person? Doesn’t the Bible say to pray for our enemies? Born again believers that make an error do they not deserve more respect than that?

I am just being obedient sharing this, not sure where it’s going other than, are we really that blind to be so cynical of everyone else when we have our own sins to contend with?

The Scriptures tell us, if anyone preaches a different gospel that is contrary to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ let him be a cursed. It doesn’t say doctrine. The key to Christianity is that Jesus laid down His life, went down to the pit of the earth for 3 days and rose to give us victory over sin and death so we can have LIFE! That should be our focus.  Do we allow the enemy to distract us with some trivial things?

We error not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God in its entirety! If we all understood the Scriptures and God’s power, then we all should be living victorious lives without sin or defeat, truly walking out that we are over comers and more than conquerors, right? Perfect unity, humble, kind, loving, compassionate, joyful, peaceful, faithful, loyal, of virtue and integrity, empowered to do amazing things for the Kingdom of God without interruption, isn’t that the way we all look!?

The Bible says if you bite and devour one another take heed that you are not consumed one of another.

Today, may we examine where we are at with God. Where do we personally have error in our lives? Have we spent the same amount of time in solitude with God and working out our own salvation with fear and trembling as we do criticizing and “warning” others about someone else’s mistakes? If we did, we certainly would run out of time and space to worrying about anyone else but ourselves. If anyone has perfected his life, please email me…I want to know you! 

Now if you have gone to that person, and that person has either refused to engage to reconcile, repent, or is in blatant sin…yes the Bible says to mark that man, to avoid him, cut him/her off,  for they are subverted and twisted in their thinking. But it is for the hope of restoration not rejection. God’s ways are perfect converting the soul.

With much love to think about~
