I am disheartened by individuals’, church’s, and denomination’s flagrant falling away from placing the Scripture as the final authority.  In its place they maintain a spiritual life that places more importance on the shifting and flighty feelings, experiences and trends, which could easily be compared to sinking sand. Revivals and movements that encourage and teach people to exegete their experiences rather than the Word of God lead people away from a faith with a firm foundation to one founded on emotions, emotionalism and fleeting fads. The chasing of signs, wonders, healings and personal prophecies on a near hysterical scale, has left many wounded and confused, others frustrated and angry, and still others excited and consumed with self and looking for their next emotional high.  The same goes for “movements” that are based on what’s popular, fashionable and/or trendy as opposed to what is Biblical.

The matter be helped with the simple initiation of dialog between sincere individuals that desperately want nothing else than to live their lives to the glory of God.  Quite possibly, this blog might be able to bring about some of that type of fruitful discussion, where believers might be able to learn something from each other… all the while sharing truth, in love.

  1. Do you think calling out people’s faults is encouraging or loving? We’ll all have to answer for our sins, big or small. You’re lucky your mistakes aren’t put on blast, friend.

    I’ve been caught up in the ’emotionalism and fleeting fads’ myself. It works for some, for you it obviously doesn’t. I just forgot, forgave, and moved on. Why not just serve God the way you want and leave these kinds of people in the past? Life is very pleasant that way…

  2. Thank you for posting what God has put on your heart. Unfortunately there is opposition…(Zechariah 7:11-13) But don’t let their shouting and intimidation silence you. (Jeremiah 1:7-9)
    or make you sad -press on!!(Ezekiel 13:22)
    Jeremiah 6:16-17 (King James Version)
    16Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
    17Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

    Take care pickles….S.
