Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I was thinking today how quickly people will grab a Bible Commentary, read a book, listen to a YouTube Video or ask a friend for spiritual answers, yet they are deathly afraid of listening to allow God to teach them. We have been trained to think it is impossible for God to speak to us or teach us directly, even through the Scriptures. The religious culture always points us to "experts" who are more learned than the rest of us.
Yet the Scriptures often speak of waiting and hearing from God. We are told in the Scriptures that we have a much better covenant than Moses (Hebrews 7:22), and yet we are told by the church world that it is normal to live in a spiritual experience far inferior to that of Moses. I've often heard it said by professing Christians that they wish they could have lived in the Old Testament when God was working and speaking to the people directly. Yet the Scriptures tell us that we have closer access to God than Abraham or Moses had.
This attitude must change in the hearts of people. The reason there is so much confusion in the church world is because people are parroting the "experts" and finding their source of truth in the multitude of opinions rather than in God.
