Good morning, everyone! We had the pleasure of teaming up with Bill and Allen again this week for another Spirit-led discussion over indoctrination vs. the simple Truth of God’s Word. You can check it out here:
This is the description of the show:
“What is the difference between being in doctrine and indoctrination? It’s HUGE !!!!!
Many churches work on convincing you that ‘what they believe’ focuses on the Bible. They even include biblical references so that you will ‘line-up’.
I’ve heard many preachers and pastors tell people ‘you can check me’ or ‘go to your own bible’, only to find the their preaching already had an objective in mind – and it wasn’t from God.
This is a dangerous time in the church today. People trust their pastors more than they trust God. They have been indoctrinated to believe that everything the pastor says is true – CHECK YOUR BIBLES !!!!
Not everything a preacher preaches on is biblical.
As always, thanks for listening. We don’t claim to have all the answers – and you should never ever take our word for it – DO YOUR RESEARCH, READ YOUR BIBLE !
Don’t ever be ashamed to ask about things you don’t understand. Go to God in prayer, ask for answers to be revealed to you, stay in God’s will and read your Bible. We aren’t perfect and we don’t profess to be, far from it, actually – keep that in mind as you listen to our stories. If you are spending more time picking apart our messages, you’re spending too much time on the wrong things.
Put your focus back on God. Read Your Bible. Pray. Surround Yourself with Like-Minded Christians. Gather with Two or More in His Name. Go. Disciple.
Know your sources, research your topics, cross reference verses and never grieve the Holy Spirit.”
It is our sincere hope and prayer that as you listen to these discussions, the Holy Spirit will give you open ears and an open heart to examine all that you’ve been taught, experienced, and practice to see if it is truly in line with His Word or if it’s simply a bunch of man-made traditions that have trumped the simplicity and beauty of the pure, undefiled Word of God. This HAS to be our ultimate authority and everything else must fall in line with it, not the other way around.
