A Questionable Quote
It was at the bottom an email. It had no name attached to it so I don't know who wrote it. (Maybe I will do my homework after I post this and see who said it. It must be someone noteworthy. I am certain of that.)
I don't like this quote. I think it is just false.
"The only Scripture I believe is the one that I obey"If I were to guess about the motivation behind the quote, I would say it is to try and persuade Christians into obeying God by questioning the sincerity of their faith if they do not obey. I disagree with that approach. I think Christians are better encouraged to obey God via the motivation of thankfulness, which is the opposite of guilt, in this case. IOW, if I know that God loves me and accpets me no matter what I do, I am oh so thankful for that. This is a good motivation for living for Him, much more powerful than guilt.
Furthermore, I know there are Scriptures that I believe but that I don't obey.
I could be wrong about the intent of the quote, though.
