Most "wrong" understanding is formed in mans religion, the Lord came and called the religious class vipers and children of the devil. He never used the harsh words on the harlot and the tax collector! Hypocrisy is the first great evil in the eyes of the Lord, remove that log and then the other issues are made more clear.What wrong understandings of God have you encountered? How did that encourage unbiblical behaviour?
Well My friend the strength of sin is the "law" and until one is set free from the law, they will be in bondage to sin no matter if they allow hypocrisy to blind them to that fact....even the world can see the hypocrisy of those that preach the law, and for that reason they blaspheme Gods good name!To me the "traditions of men" are the worse. The Apostle Paul warns us about them......
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
The anointing (Christ) is the only thing we have as a safety net to keep us from going astray from believing error. Did the Father teach you this? Did the Word of God confirm it?, and does the Holy Spirit bear witness to it? There all ways have to have three witness's to every truth we hear. Wrong believing causes wrong actions in our lives, and we surely don't want that. Truth will all ways be tested by fire to see if it is truly real. If it survives we receive the reward, if it fails we suffer loss. If we trust in the anointing that is in us we will all ways get it right.
I agree fully with you here. May I speak freely....We know the strength of sin is the law, or in other words Satans right to bring accusations to God against is based on the laws of the land, which is the law. Like any prosecuting attorney he case is solely based on the law. You take away those laws and his case is useless against us and is thrown out of court. Like it tells us here.....Well My friend the strength of sin is the "law" and until one is set free from the law, they will be in bondage to sin no matter if they allow hypocrisy to blind them to that fact....even the world can see the hypocrisy of those that preach the law, and for that reason they blaspheme Gods good name!
