😱Are you committing Bible Study Adultery?
The only teacher you need is the Holy Spirit. Do you believe this verse? Or do you just believe and obey what the commanding voices in your life have said?
It’s time to get to know Scripture for yourself… just between you, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. That’s it.
It’s a big deal in the Bible Challenge to say no to commentaries & study Bible notes. This verse I shared is what drives me to unadulterated time with my Bible.
I get a lot of commentary in life. I chat doctrine with people, I read books, I listen to sermons. I get a lot of input on the thoughts, convictions, and doctrines of others. But when I sit down to read my Bible Challenge portion each day, no one else is allowed in with their views for that time I’m spending with the Holy Spirit who’s anointing teaches me what I need to know. We don’t need a third wheel for our Bible time. We just need the mind of Christ free to lead us to what we need to learn.
Many of you are following commanding people with their commanding doctrines & rules with no ability to defend your (their) stance from Scripture. Many of you follow a way of thinking & obey certain folks not veering from it because you fear the backlash from those commanding presences in your life. It’s time for the desert island approach again! It’s time to ask yourself, ‘If I had never met so-n-so would I read my Bible and come to THAT conclusion?’ Ask the Holy Spirit to show you wondrous things from your Bible time. He’s quite capable to teach you all you need to know even if you never pick up a commentary again and ignore all your so-n-so’s for a while. 😅👊🏻😎
