Mystery or Mastery 6

I hope this discussion helps to expose the mystery of the war between the flesh and the spirit.

Even though you can live out your life balancing your relationship with God between drawing close and drifting away - Your life is best served denying the flesh a great many things and agreeing with God on more occasions.  Can I have an AMEN?

I truly believe that you mean well.  You do recognize that God exists.  You do believe that God is alive.  You do agree that most cardinal Bible principles are best for tour life - But you prefer mystery over mastery. 

You prefer acting like you don’t understand God and you prefer acting like you don’t understand what God actually said.  

Note: Many believers today do not rely on the written Word of God for their understanding of right and wrong.  They have convinced themselves that if they don’t audibly hear from God they aren’t going to make any changes.  We’ve come along way with this freedom of ours.

You prefer the mystery of how you can stay saved while living away from Christ more than you prefer mastering your life in Christ by staying in God’s will.

You like to look at what you’ve learned from the scriptures, those things that you don’t practice; as good fodder for thought, but less than a requirement of God.

You still see the holy commandments of God as (God’s mysterious way of telling you not to do things) - that you have found through experience, you cannot or will not conform to.

Religion has made a mockery of God by tolerating what God does not. 

You have become comfortable relying on what others say you can or cannot do or be, in lieu of believing what God says about who you are and what you can be.  You are comfortable in keeping it all a mystery.

We are not as comfortable when God talks straight to you. Ouch!!!"
