Enlightened or Lightened?

DSC_0009

There are many today that claim they are enlightened as far as the word of God or even enlightened beyond the Bible to know intricate details of our God without the written word. If you do a cursory glance of the religious world you will find multiple viewpoints that are not able to be reconciled with each other and with the written word. So what is a person to do. Paul gives warning about preaching another gospel. In the book of Galatians Paul writes the following:

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:6-9.

There are many that are preaching another gospel thinking they are enlightened but in reality they are lightening the truth of this important message. We as Christians are supposed to be contending for the faith that was once delivered (Jude 3). If we find ourselves more enlightened than the revealed word of God, we may have went right past truth into error. Let us contend for the faith this year as we spread this soul saving message to the lost.
Love you all,
