By Us Or By Them?

All of these wonderful things (hopes and victories, finance, prosperity, health) could come to pass for some of us simply because we applied a very simple solution—they could happen because we have stopped living peopletalkingby what is said BY OTHERS and have started living by what is said BY US. Over the course of years I have heard of people who changed something in their life because of something an individual said to them. They stopped taking medicine or started taking a medicine because an individual, who had no medical training, said they should; and the result was disastrous. There are people who have brought someone into their life or expulsed someone from their life because an individual said they should; and the result was disastrous. There are people who have invested in a market an individual told them to invest in and the result was disastrous. I know a couple who were told by an older influential couple that they should stop paying tithes “because it did not make sense to pay tithes” proving on both ends (believer and unbeliever) that human reason can, somewhat easily, cast aside biblical principle because an opposing viewpoint seems logical at the time. We should be very wise in deciding whether to live by something said by others and decide the correctness of it by the truths evident in the Bible.
