Paul Sets It Straight!

I've made it a habit to begin each day with a reading from the Bible. One from the Old Testament and another from the New, and I've been told that you really don't begin to grasp what's being said till your on your second or third trip through. You know it's the truth, just like any read or movie you get more out of it, and pick up things you missed the first time with repeated review.

So I was scanning The Letter of Paul To The Galatians and came across something that holds timeless value. "If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed. Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God?"- The Letter of Paul To The Galatians 1:9-10

What a great question! How many "men of God" in today's society are teaching a perverted message to gain their agenda? It's not just the Bible this question applies to; what of those of other faiths that have altered the text to promote man's agenda? Radical Islam and those who preach the race centered reparation text come immediately to mind. It's not only a sin against our Creator, but a sin against society to abuse people who believe and follow the teaching of a higher power. Those who preach a perverted tongue are easily identified by their words. Do they first seek to do no harm, and hold true to the golden rule? Are they preaching to love one another as you do yourself? Those in my mind, are the qualifiers of the truth.

God Bless!
