Sunday Sermon: We have our beliefs.

SUNDAY SERMON

WE BEHAVE OUR BELIEFS.


Text; 1Tim 4:1-3

Once upon a time, a young group of monkeys were taken from a park to a nearby park to live among the dogs where there were NO TREES. THREE years after, these monkeys were  returned back to their original park. Behold! These monkeys could  not jump like their colleagues. Although, they still maintain monkey identities but their behaviours betrays their identities. They sometimes barked like dogs.

We behave what we believe. Our beliefs come from our knowledge. Why do we behave like Africans, or Nigerians? Because we are Africans not Americans, Nigerians not Indians. Over the years, it has been observed that human beings changes with the TREND  around them. We are informed or deformed by available information. Religiously speaking, erroneous teachings have CONDITIONED us to behave our beliefs.

Devil uses Doctrine to Distract, Disconnect, Discourage, Defeat and Destroy many souls.

The Doctrine of Christ is singular and consistent. The Doctrines of men and demons are plural, confusing, destructive. (Act.2:42, 2 Joh.9, Mk.7:6-7, 1 Tim.4:1-3).

HAVE YOU EVER SAT DOWN TO ASK WHY DOES A PARTICULAR RELIGIOUS GROUP BEHAVE THE WAY THEY BEHAVE, DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?

We actually behave our beliefs. How many of us would allow someone to plant an explosive device on our bodies? The reason is not far from the doctrines, beliefs, teachings that they received.
The Saviour of the whole world says “My doctrine (singular) is not mine, but His who sent Me.” (Joh.7:16) Jesus Christ passed this  DOCTRINE to His staffs and this DOCTRINE transformed Fishermen to Fishers of  men, tax collector to task collector, thieves  to chiefs, persecutors to preachers
WE BEHAVE WHAT WE BELIEVE!

If monkeys can start behaving like dogs, then it is true that we are what we preach and believe.
A lot of fake “pastors,” “apostles,” and “general overseers” with fake doctrines have produced fake followers today.
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light….” (2 Cor.11:13-15)
Unfortunately, many of the elects are being manipulated or influenced by these fake leaders on media. Jesus warns “For false  Christ’s and false prophets will rise and show GREAT SIGNS and WONDERS to DECEIVE, if possible, even the elect.” Matt.24:24.

If your salvation is crucial to you, examine what you believe  and how you behave.
“Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus* Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.” Rom.16:17-18

We invite you to come and study with us at the church of Christ near you where the Bible is respected and held as the ONLY authority, when the matter concerns God and your salvation. For sure your eyes will be OPENED to see God more clearly.
