Why do people go off into false doctrine? Is it because they are in a dry place in their walk with God that they try to fill that void to renew their faith. Or is it because their walk with God has it grown stale. But if their walk has grown stale that is no reason reason to go off into false doctrine. Has the devil truely blinded these people. Or is it because they have lost the revealation of what Jesus did for them on the cross. Jesus never meant for his teaching to become so warped that it damages people spiritually. Some will go off into false doctrine because they don’t fully understand scripture and the context that it is used in within the passage . Reading scripture within the proper context is very important and can lead one astray.
Within the last week or so I have had someone tell me that I celebrate the sabbath on the the wrong day. That Jesus didn’t change the sabbath. She tried to use Acts 13:42-43 to prove her point that Gentiles followed the sabbath and worshipped with the Jews. She was also trying to point out that the sabbath was not considered to be Jewish. But you have to read those two verses within the passage to get the full meaning. Yes the sabbath was made for man but also jesus also warned the jews not to hold on it as tradition which is what they were doing. But he was trying to tell them that their rest was in him. She used mark2:27-28 to make her point on this one. She also used Gen 2:23 to say that the sabbath was given back in the Garden of Eden. But should it matter what day we worship on. Because all he is really looking for is our true worship.
