Why would I want to hear the Message?
If I want to hear someone's 'experiences', I will read biographies of people who told the truth about their lives.
If I want to be in an exclusive club, I will join 'Freemasons' or 'The Mystic Order of the Veiled Prophets of the Enchanted Realm'.
If I'm interested in hearing about the church ages or seals, I will read Clarence Larkin's original writings on these subjects.
If I want to hear fables of mystical clouds, bridges collapsing, and voices talking at rivers, I will read a fiction novel.
If I want to hear someone exalt their 'prophet', I will join the Mormons or Ladder Day Saints.
If I want to see women put down and emotionally abused, I will become Islamic.
If I want to hear superiority and racist terms, I will become part of the Ku Klux Klan.
If I want to hear people condemn others to Hell for leaving their religion, I will join a Cult.
Instead, I will read the Word of God and trust Him to lead me into all Truth and guide me with His Spirit.
No one who trusts in You will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others. Show me the right path O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You. (Psalms 25:3-5 NLT)
