As is typical for our time, it is too easy to go through all the motions of going to church, drop some dollars into the offering, be pious for the songs, worship, and even the sermon. Then we go home and forget that our intimate walk with God still much be #1 in our lives or we’re completely missing the boat. We’re right at the end of the age and need to be as close to our Lord as possible. He’s about to call us home. We must be about our Father’s business. We also need to finish well!
It is a hard thing for many of us to realize that some of our traditional teachings do not cover the whole truth being conveyed in God’s Word. This is of course also a common line used by many cultists and so I would encourage the reader to check these things out for yourself before accepting “truths” from anyone. It must be confirmed in the Word of God. Often it is of great value to research the original usage of words so that the true meaning is understood. This often casts a bit of light on the subject not seen before. This is the case with many of the things that Jesus said, particularly in His parables.
