Defending "Self"

9/21/2008

“Any man who thinks that his own theorizing, and speculating, are going to bring him to any right knowledge of God—knows NOTHING at all.” (C. Finney)

This reminds me of the foolishness of taking a reference in the Bible or someone’s life and justifying your own perspective. I think I see what bothers me now about defending vices of entertainment or “alcohol” or traditions that people are comfortable with “culturally”… Many are “coming from a place of trying to justify”…their thinking, their existing habits, or ones they wish were “ok”—instead of demanding to not settle for anything but God’s heart. Finney and every true Prophet of every generation since the Garden have tried to warn us of this very Point. —michelle 1:16 a.m.
