“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6
In this day and age, messages across churches today are superficial at best. It is water-less clouds, fruitless and twice dead trees (Jude 12). It is all form; no substance. It is merely a shell without an interior. Yet such messages are preached to the masses weekly! The end result? No true spiritual growth as there is no right dividing the Scripture. For Scriptures is food for the soul, and such nutritious food it is! Take that away, and you’re left with junk that leaves souls spiritually malnourished and theologically deficient.
Spiritual discernment goes undeveloped as there’s no biblical buildup! Thus becoming prone to deception of “every wind of doctrine”. People run to and fro to big name preachers who love to promote their doctrine to the churches “in God’s name” in order to legitimate their message. They run around claiming that the Bible/ theology isn’t enough and that their teaching is exactly what the church needs! “You can’t grow without this message”, they say. Yet such claims bring to mind the words of the apostle Paul,
“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.” -Galatians 1:8-9
Yet because of no rightly dividing the word of Truth, the sheep are falsely divided in heresy. No true Word , no spiritual growth, no discernment. Destruction awaits.
