Yep - this is right on! We, like sheep, are sppon fed and taught to swallow whole, without question. The unanswered questions aren’t nearly as dangerous as the unquestioned answers.

Yes, may Jesus have His way with His Body!!!

I really like this article Jim. You have touched on something important indeed. I’ve seen Christians try to lead their brothers and sisters into agreement in the manner you describe.

You really put your finger on what is wrong with this approach. That’s a gift Jim. I have merely felt uncomfortable with the requests without quite knowing why.

Thank you also for reminding me of the passage in the Bible that tells us that as Jesus’ sheep, we will know His voice when we hear it. That is very powerful.

That’s right! Better said, than I would had said it. Sometimes we find ourselves going along with something that is against our wills/or beliefs, but get sucked into doing so. I have felt out of control in situations such as these, when someone who is supposed to be a leader attempts to usurp my will and the will fo God, for that matter. I am so glad that I left the traditional church scenes because it really is not the will of God. Once in a while, I may visit a traditional church but it is not my desire or intent to become part of that scheme of thing again.

Great article. I believe that the body of Christ hears God’s voice but does not always obey it. It would be needful to obey the voice of Christ and say no to wolves who are constantly trying to imitate the voice of the Holy Spirit.
