It is important to pray before listening to anything ANY man has to say. It must be proven through the word of God. It is why we are told…to “study to shew ourselves approved unto God…” No one piggy backs to heaven nor to rewards…LOL We have each who have chosen to believe on GOD, on the blood of Christ for our salvation…are to study ourselves whatever anyone teaches us…
When you are open to the whole truth of God, no matter who it is that is teaching it…someone in your church camp, or in another church camp…it means you do not have a dog in the race. No one, no man, no woman to protect…or like what they said because you affiliate with them….but only wanting the truth, then and only then…do I believe God gives us the truth with peace.
I am not set to align myself with a person or a particular church. I align myself fully with the word of God and the truth that is presented through the word of God.
Remember too, God does not want you confused, He wants you to understand His word, it is why it was written and given to us…and so, we CAN understand it…and we can make choices in regards to it, but unless WE study it to know and place our faith in the word of God…we might be confused by what the different teachers believe, when we have to believe for what? OURSELVES. And we do this trusting in God, not man.
I know as women, we have not been taught this as men have been taught, but today…God says another thing in regards to faith and belief….Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
We are all required to study to show ourselves approved unto God.
Does this help?
