Dylan and Jessica’s Wedding

I remember hearing on two occasions, people speaking of someone, who they had never met before, but who caught their attention in a public place. They told me that person, a woman on both occasions, “looked like a Christian”, because of long hair and dress, and a lack of make-up and earrings. I have to say that these are things that I also prefer to see in Christian women. However, I think that if a Christian is only recognized by superficial things, he or she does not need the Holy Spirit to give testimony of Christ, nor do those, who recognize a person in this way, need the Holy Spirit in order to discern the spiritual state. The Spirit of God gives invisible witness to the attributes of God and Christ receives more glory from those who demonstrate what they have from the inside out, rather than those who can only demonstrate superficial signs and acquired customs from a certain group of religious people. Jesus rebuked those, who were “hypocrites… and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness… straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel… First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.” We should be very clear about these priorities. The apostle said, “The kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” What I look for first, personally, is for concrete evidence of the life of Christ in a believer.

We have good reason to take a look at the three major cults, which originated in the New England area of America in the 19th Century. First of all, we need to be impressed with the hideousness of their history and doctrine. It shows how far they strayed from Bible truth. They have deceived millions around the world. When their representatives come to our doors, we will see how far we should stay away from listening to their errors. We see that our attitudes should be far from sympathetic to those, who offend God and incite His wrath. The apostle John warns us seriously, “Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God… If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting” (2 John 1:9-10).

How important it is for God’s people to be firmly grounded in good doctrine and to have understanding of the essential doctrines of the faith! Never entertain the assertions of some, who tell us that doctrine is not important. They teach that the important thing is to live the Christian life. That is a dangerous lie! How can you live the Christian life, if you do not know the important teachings about what it entails? “I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth” (2 John 1:3).

John Bunyan thought that those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit end by believing the errors of false religion. Few escape from the snares and pitfalls of the cults once they have fallen into them. So please take to heart the subjects that we are dealing with at this time… three important lessons concerning three poisonous serpents from hell.
