Spiritual Maturity 15th March, 2013 Ephe:4:14a That henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, Mediocrity and spiritual hypnotism is taking center stage of the church activities gradually. People are no longer being filled with the Words, but rather with the manipulated word. Doctrines and precedents is being used to replace Christ, the rallying point of our faith. Even, some have gone far in beleiving that other congregations are no better to theirs. A man of God once said that instead of having faith in a pastor, the God of the pastor should have been trusted with our faith. That does not take away the place of honouring our spiritual leaders, but we must be careful at deifying them, not forgeting that they are human. The moment you are being told anything different from the word of God discard the message and hold on to the truth that God says concerning your situation. God’s purpose for man is the same for all. God is not interested in your denomination, doctrine, stance, but faith in Him. Faith that sees God as all in all. I have heard Christians interpreting the scripture in a very funny way, claming that being wealthy is wrong! Spiritual vitamin deficiency I call such. Becoming so carnal to the point of beleiving that Godly riches is a sin. Making Christ the focus of our faith helps in opening our spuritual consciousness to the truth in religion, doctrine and life itself. Your maturity in God is a function of your prosperity.
