mikehill4jesus “Is the Holy Bible your God instead of Jesus?”

Unlike Christianity, which elevates the teachings of Christ above all others, the veneration of whatever the Bible says has the effect of neutralizing the teachings of Jesus and devaluing the oracles of the great prophets of Israel. It is a Christian aberration that can best be described as Biblianity. It is the sanctification of a book that often seems more like the worship of an idol. Instead of a graven image, carved or sculpted, it is the printed work in a gilt-edged book that is glorified. For Biblians, it has become a sacred object, an icon proudly carried about as a sure sign of their commitment to godliness.
Does your use of the Holy Bible cause God to come and live with you?
There is, according to the Lord Jesus, only one thing that will cause God to come and live with you.
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
IS THAT YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A CHRISTIAN?
A life today in the companionship of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When your biblical interpretation overrides Holy Spiritual Guidance, then you end up being a Christless Christian living out a FAITH in worldly things supported by your own Bible Knowledge. It is worth noting that there is no substitute for Spiritual Experience. We can study the Holy Bible and other Writings, but it is not the same as having the Counsel of the Holy Spirit. Without the aid of the Holy Spirit, your Bible Study will not result in this life changing, soul saving, God pleasing, experience in your life.
Jesus promises those who love him, learn his teachings and puts them into practice. John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Then instead of being a Bible Quoter, the world is full of them, you will be a spiritually reborn Christian who is to be salt and light in your Community and able to provide a proven testimony that witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ. There are few of them in the world.
NOW IS THE TIME TO GET RIGHT WITH THE LOVING AND POWERFUL LORD JESUS WHILE YOU CAN – YOUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT!
