You may have been HURT, but don’t do damage to Gods Holy Word

Many people all over the world have suffered from religious abuse, so ministering with sensitivity to people that may have been hurt in the past is necessary. However, abuse of a certain scripture does not mean we get to erase those scriptures out of the Bible or neuter and spay them for our own comfort and convenience.

It’s better to put down our pride, ask God to heal our hurts, get in fasting and prayer, and get an honest Holy Spirit understanding of what God says in His Word.

Free from Control or Under Control?

The only way to be free from the control of sinful men is to put yourself completely under the control of God.

If you become so called “free” from control of men but then lean on your own understanding you’ll just end up under the control of your sinful, ignorant and selfish nature… Which is worse because you’ll be responsible for your own error.

The fear of the Lord makes your actions wise. The knowledge of what’s Holy causes you to have understanding on how to structure your lifestyle for growth and fruitfulness.

Proverbs 9:10
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

1 Corinthians 7
22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.
23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

1 Corinthians 9
19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
