440 - Taking God at His Word
One of the attributes of becoming a Faith Prepper is learning how to trust God as His Word. I know many of us will say that we do. When pressed, almost all believers will state the mantra, "I believe everything God says, start to finish, from Genesis to Revelation." After all, that's the expected answer. To say anything less would make us seem like a lukewarm believer.
But the truth is, most believers, maybe ever you, don't truly take God's Word as the final authority in your life. How can I say that? Because God's Word speaks to just about every issue we face today yet the church seems to be divided up into various opinions that differ greatly from one another. If God's Word doesn't change and is always true, how can that be? If God's Word says something is wrong, for example, how can any believer who claims God's Word as the final authority in their life, have a different opinion than what the Word says? It seems inconsistent, doesn't it? Hypocritical.
As the adage goes, the Scriptures are true about everything it teaches. And it teaches about everything.
To test whether God's Word molds your opinions or whether your opinions are determined independent of God's Word, I have listed a number of controversial issues below. What is your opinion on these? And whatever your opinion is, does it line up with the Word of God? If it doesn't, who is wrong, and what are you prepared to do about it?
Let's see how you would answer the following:
How many of your opinions were just that, opinions? How many of your views or convictions were based on Scripture? And those that weren’t based on Scripture, does that bother you at all? Are you willing to change? Right now? Today? No matter the costs?
