Jude 4 (NET) For certain men have secretly slipped in among you- men who long ago were marked out for the condemnation I am about to describe - ungodly men who have turned the grace of our God into a license for evil and who deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Sola started getting uncomfortable with some doctrinal emphasis made in their church. First, there was the sound teaching about grace, then certain emphasis were made which inferred that God does not care about what we do, He only cares about what we believe. Later, teachings which inferred that no matter what Christians did, they cannot sin because they are now under grace and not under the law surfaced. As a result of these, Sin was redefined to mean self-righteousness. The pervading moral decline was now palpable.

Sola realized that he too started becoming quite careless with his spiritual life and was even now contemplating the sins he had long been delivered from. He was awakened to reality when his child took ill and he could not command the spiritual authority he once had.

The teachers who came into the church using twisted messages about grace to pervert the doctrine of Christ are still very much around today. How do we know them? Their doctrines make you feel more like walking in the flesh than walking in the spirit. They engender self-centeredness and not Kingdom mindedness. They trivialize sin and tag righteousness as legalism. Their doctrines may appeal to the mind, but they starve the spirit of life. Because of these, over time, spiritual decline is perceived by those who have once enjoyed intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit. All that is left is empty words with no power.

Go into today knowing that anywhere the kingdom of God is preached, righteousness is promoted (see Rom 14:17, Mat 6:33).

Ask the Lord to deliver you from every doctrine that is not from Him.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
