Any argument that can be used against the perspicuity(clarity) of scripture can likewise be used against the perspicuity of tradition or the perspicuity of all human thought and communication in general. Which of course leads us right back into the same irrationalism and skepticism of the past. If…
Lean Not on Your Own Understanding. (4.20.13)
A few months ago, when things became busy and hectic, it was incredibly easy for me to put church and prayer and the Word behind all of my work. I thought, “I have so many things to do, I need to skip church this Sunday” or “I’m so busy, I really need to spend this Sunday working instead of resting” or something along those lines.
But God would say to me (and to all of you who might relate) “Lean not on your own understanding, and trust in the LORD with all your heart” (Proverbs 3:5). God says:
- “[Do not neglect] to meet together, as is the habit of some” (Hebrews 10:25), (GO TO CHURCH) and
- - “I am the LORD your God who brought you…out of the house of slavery. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God” (Exodus 20:2,8-10). *(KEEP THE SABBATH)
Trust in the Word of God rather than your own understanding. We trust in ourselves more than we’d like to admit, myself included. I pray that you all would not believe the lie that we are wise enough to make decisions without counsel from the Word of God.
