The Bottom Line: Obey God's Word


There are a few topics that you can write about that you can be sure will generate a lot of discussion and readership in the blogs: tithing, women pastors, alcohol, and Calvinism. There are those who will try to persuade you that the Bible doesn't require you to tithe, that women pastors are acceptable to God, that it's okay to play with the dynamite of alcohol, and that you have no choice about your salvation. Don't believe them.

Anyone, and I mean anyone, who tells you that the Bible does not say what it plainly says, is a false prophet and is not to be believed. Do not be misled by those who teach you to disobey God's word. They are teachers who teach to itching ears, who will turn you away from the truth.

Here's the bottom line: obey God's Word.

"Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:13-15

After reading your post,I want to have a glass of Duplin wine,go hear a woman pastor preach and become a hyper-calvinist and stop tithing.

At least you made Tom Rich's post and a scathing denunciation of what you wrote. Good for you. You attracted the attention of a non-tithing malcontent who thinks he's an expert on all things spiritual these days.

Keep up the good work--you're right on target.

Anonymous,

If Tom Rich disagrees with me then I'm speaking the truth of God's Word. :)

Les, if we are discussing sin when you refered to the "Dynamite" then lets discuss sin and not try to bottle it up. Teach how to mortify sin, and with whoes power we can overcome it. Sin comes in many forms not a 20oz bottle.
