But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless. Jeremiah 7:8
Are you following a deceptive religion or preacher? In the book of Jeremiah, the Israelite’s were worshiping pagan gods. They were putting their faith in false gods to the point they were sacrificing their own children God had enough! Every time they sent offerings to these false gods they provokes and angered our Heavenly Father even more. We need to make sure that we are worshiping God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24) and not the deception of Satan
Is the doctrine that you are following from the Bible or man? Many people put their trust in a church or preacher but how do you know you are following the truth? The only way to know is to study your Bible for yourself. Theres been a major epidemic of Bible Illiteracy in Christianity. Statistics show 1 in 5 Christians have never read the Bible, 1 in 4 read the Bible once a year, 40% of Christians read it once a month, only 45% of Christians read the Bible more than once a week. How can you know the truth if you don’t know The Bible?
Jesus said I am the Way, Truth, and Life nobody comes to The Father (God) except through me. (John 14:6) If you want a good place to start, read the gospels (Matthew, Mark,Luke, and John) Jesus is the Living Word, if you truly want to get to know God, get to know his Son. “”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)
Don’t blindly follow any man or religion. Know God for yourself. The only way you can know God is through his Son (Jesus Christ), the only way you can know Jesus Christ is through the Word of God and The Holy Spirit. Don’t trust in the deceptive religions of the world, they are worthless in Jesus Name Amen
