Today's Scripture: "Then the Jews said to Him, 'You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?'” Jn 8:57
5607. Doubt breeds distrust before detachment. JG
Everyone meets with resistance, but not everyone meets people who want to destroy them. The Pharisees remind me of the Philistines in that they tend to dig in when faced off with God's ordained agent. It reminds me of going against the status quo in church and the rumor mill looking at you like you're the devil. Got that tee-shirt, more than one time. "My way or the highway" often takes effect without the words actually being uttered.
It's pathetic that the same church leaders who claim to believe the Bible is true to the core can do something contrary to its principles and continue as if there is no consequence to pay. It's even sadder those feeling loyal to them fall into the same judgment being told that God approves them following a person rather than obeying His word (Ez. 33:6).
Your word is faithful, God, even though people may not be.
