Don’t be a Childish Apologist

Many so-called apologists waste their time defending (arguing about) Scriptures they neither rightly divide nor live.
🤦🏾‍♂️

Giving a logical, grace-filled answer for what you believe is a good thing.

However there is no apologist gift listed in the Scriptures.

Debating and arguing are not gifts of the spirit.

The Kingdom of God is run by the prophetic anointing of Yah’s spirit, not by the philosophical and oratorical techniques of Aristotle, Plato, and Socrates.

If they lived the Scriptures… they would be Shepherds or Evangelists teaching and producing fruit – not apologists (strife filled debaters, labelers, and arguers).

Apologists are generally a waste of time unless they are actually doing the work of Evangelism, Pastoring, or Apostles building Congregations.

Childishness is not a ministry gift.

It’s easy to make money in the church by creating a doctrinal boogieman to fight but when you ask the church to repent and keep the Commandments of Jesus all you hear is🦗🦗

Don’t Confuse Theology with Doctrine

Though many people will try to conflate the two – theology and Doctrine are NOT One and the Same.

Sound Doctrine is based on the Fear of YAHUAH, Knowledge, and Obedient action in the Kingdom of God.

Theology is “called” the study of God, but culturally it comes from Greek culture of philosophy, debate, much learning, and oratory without action.

The Greeks developed a culture of people who wanted to get paid to talk. Actors, Philosophers, Orators, Entertainers all come from this influence.

The Most High has NOT been influenced by Greek culture. The Hebrew Elohim of Creation is very action-oriented. His leaders don’t judge for their pockets, His prophets are not entertainers, and His priests are not for hire.

Micah 3:11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.

His Son Jesus explains that in His Kingdom, understanding of His doctrine only comes from Obedient Action:

John 7:17 If any man will DO HIS WILL, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

When you replace the Anointing of the Prophetic Scriptures with the debate methodology of Greek Philosophers, you will never see the Kingdom.😥

Greco-Roman Culture Replaced the Prophetic Anointing with Hypocrisy

There was a 400 year famine where Yah stopped speaking thru the prophets, waiting to send His Son.

When the prophetic Anointing disappeared, Greek culture created a new waste of time: Hypocrite performances on stages with masks and scripts.

Within that vacuum, Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato created another new waste of time: the investment of your soul into intellectual pride instead of obedient action to the prophetic Scriptures.

Greco-Roman style philosophical oratory, theological debates and arts & entertainment all come from the same root: hypocrisy.

Return to the heart of God! Repentance, Love, Righteousness, and Justice in the Kingdom of Jesus!

Acts 17:21
(For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

Acts 12:21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.

Mark 7:6
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
