Honest examination of our beliefs

Honest examination of our beliefs

When it comes to beliefs, one of the hardest things to do is to tell someone something is wrong with their beliefs.The natural tendency for anyone is when somebody tries to correct us is for us to be defensive or even see our corrector as the aggressor.

But let me ask the readers, " Have we examined our beliefs ?" or " Have we honestly ask God if what we are believing are true ?"

My personal experience comes from reading the Bible. I tried to correct or find fault in it but it end up correcting me.

I have been sharing my beliefs to you perhaps it is better if we examine our own beliefs too. Ask God to help us.

 Years ago in the workplace, an intellectual used to welcome all questionable options I presented him with “it won’t hurt my feelings if you, , ,” and, on occasion anticipated his own saying; “to be painfully honest with you”. His vocabulary was astounding, but the sensitivity is what he excelled at. Although this individual always cooled on biblical subjects with me, I would like to point out that it does matter how we approach those difficult questions/comments. Is this not a call to be able to project oneself in the hearer’s shoes?

"In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)

We are all at different places in the Lord, so it would be hard to denote whether more or less compassion of delivery is necessary or possible. There are after all a number of key comments in the word of God concerning both entreat and forcefulness I’m sure you know.

So, if we just play it solidly “out of season” without regard to some indication of reception, we do stand a good chance to scatter.

But anyone we are familiar with through comments on this site, we also do stand a good chance to progress in the Lord, IF we faint not through timely correction.

“Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.” But, “do not be arrogant toward the branches.” (Proverbs 27:17, Romans 11:18)

We need that element of sharpening by God’s Holy Spirit increase, , because;

“, , , , , , , , , men gather, , , , , , , , , ” (Matthew 7:16)
