SAFEGUARD AGAINST ERROR

Download Audio Version☞ bit.ly/audio1746



1 Corinthians 6:12-13 (KJV)
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.


When Amaka's boyfriend found out that she was leaving him because of her faith in Christ, he tried to convince her to stay. He opened the Bible and read 1 Corinthians 6:12. He tried to persuade her that since she was free in Christ, all things were permissible for her.

She was almost convinced by his doctrine but knew in her spirit that continuing to live with him in sin was not the will of God, so she left even though she was quite confused.

When she discussed this confusion with her pastor, he made her understand that 'all things' talked about in 1 Cor 6:12 was within the context of the food we eat and nothing more.

I have counseled a lady whose 'Christian' fiancé was trying to convince her to commit immorality with him, and he was doing so using the Bible verses like the one above. It is dangerous when believers read the Bible but do not understand it. When the devil tempted Jesus, he was using phrases from the scripture, but Jesus was not deceived because he understood scripture even from when he was 12 years.

Go into today remembering that the biggest safeguard against error and mistakes is understanding the scriptures and knowing the power of God (see Matthew 22:29, Psalm 119:9).

Ask the Lord to give you the spirit of revelation and understanding so that you may grow in Him.
