“The knowledge of God consists not in frigid speculation, but carries worship along with it.” – John Calvin
Do you diligently study the Scriptures so as to know the truth of our Lord? Do you dive into the divisive issues such as election, limited atonement and the like in an effort to fully comprehend the truths of God’s Word? If not, how do you know that the God you worship is the God of the Bible? If you aren’t digging into Scripture (all Scripture, even the difficult parts) you may very well be worshiping an image of God that you have created in your mind, one that doesn’t agree with Scripture. This is called idolatry. You may call your god “Jesus”, but as history has proven, that is a very popular name for false gods. This short post is intended to encourage you to scour ALL of Scripture. Examine the always-debated “Doctrines of Grace”. Learn what Calvinism actually teaches before denouncing it. Find out for yourself what “Lordship Salvation” means. Look into all sides of the debate over the gift of “tongues”. Don’t assume the beliefs you have traditionally held are biblical, instead, go look for yourself! And then – go worship our sovereign creator in truth!!
