The Spotlight: On Erroneous Thinking, Misuse of Scripture and Religiousity


Hi Dear Readers,

I hope you enjoyed the three posts I shared with you last week!  If you missed them, you can click on the category The Spotlight, to read them all.

This week’s posts deal with three errors we are prone to make in our Christian walk, sincerely or insincerely.  It could be that you think God told you to marry someone, when He has said no such thing.  It could be that you’ve been misusing Scripture to justify your lifestyle and condemn others.  It could be that you have never come to appreciate the work of the Holy Spirit.  These posts challenge some of the false ideas we have believed and may unknowingly propagate.

Please read and be blessed, and be kind to share and drop a comment for the authours!

1. HATE TO TELL YOU THIS BUT NO, GOD DID NOT TELL YOU TO MARRY YOUR SPOUSE by Isaiah 53:5 Project

Although I have no formal seminary education and am not ordained, I am a leader and a teacher in my church.

We need to stop misusing scripture and start using it for what God intended. First we will start with 3 ways we misuse scripture…

3. RELIGIOUS OR RELATIONSHIP by Patrick Hawthorne

We meet them in every church building.  Some we love with a heavenly loathe, while others we simply tolerate.  To these individuals I salute you with a Southern inspired, “Bless your heart.”  Translated, this means that I love you but if you don’t leave me alone, I will take your Bible and literally thump you over the head with it just as you have figuratively done it to me.  Yes…I’m writing of the law abiding, Pharisee adoring, religious fanatic within each church building…
