Why has it become popular for people's personal feelings to be what they base their
relationship with GOD on?
I was under the impression that the WORD OF GOD.. Was the criteria for which we learn what God want's and expects from those who claim to love and follow him?
When did that change?
And can you find a bible verse in the scriptures that give us permission to do so?
1Jn_2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
Isn't that how we know God?
How else then do we expect to gain a relationship with God?
I am kind of flummoxed at this..
Several times recently I have heard and seen people posting things online about how they feel God wants this... or that...Regardless of what is said about That in the Gospel?!!
And when you tell them that it isn't biblical... you hear something like this..
"Yes well God has given me the feeling that.."
"God has revealed to me by ..... means that I should..."
But that doesn't change the Biblical or UNBIBLICAL nature of what your saying your planning on doing..
God will NEVER undermined his word..
Therefore He isn't the one telling you to do something that IS AGAINST HIS WORD..
Do you realize that Jesus Christ while here on earth NEVER... Not once strayed from obeying or fulfilling the prophecies about him and his coming..
That is what his entire life was for..
to live perfectly.. and then to die as the perfect sacrifice.. that he might save us all..
If Jesus didn't disobey.. what makes you think it is acceptable for you to do so..?
