Blind Followers of Blind Leaders
Some may wonder and would like to ask why I always write about false doctrines in these lessons and about the title BLIND FOLLOWERS OF BLIND LEADERS. My reason for doing this is because just as in the medical world we are told that the number one killer of people is heart problems or cancer, so is false doctrines the number one killer among us today in the religious world.
I believe, and the Bible will prove me right, that false doctrines and being BLIND FOLLOWERS OF BLIND LEADERS will cause more souls to be lost on judgment day that all the other sins combined that men do.
Christ knew this and had a lot to say about it. He was always reminding his followers about this very thing. Here are some quotes from God's word, the Bible, about this subject:
TITUS 1:14: "Not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men that turn from the truth."
EPHESIANS 4:14: "That we henceforth be no more children tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness whereby they lie in wait to deceive."
MATTHEW 15:9: "But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men."
COLOSSIANS 2:22: "...which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?"
MATTHEW 7:22: "Many will come to me in that day and say Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in they name? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me ye that work iniquity."
MATTHEW 7:15: "Beware of false prophets."
MATTHEW 24:11: "And many false prophets shall arise and deceive many."
MATTHEW 24:24: "For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets."
2 PETER 2:1: "There shall be false teachers among you."
MARK 13:22: "For false prophets shall arise."
1 JOHN 4:1: "Because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
MATTHEW 7:21: "Not every one that saith unto me 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter into the kingdom of heaven but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven."
Have you done the will of God? Are you trying to do His will? Or, are you following after the doctrines of men? Are you a BLIND FOLLOWER OF BLIND LEADERS? God's word will tell you if you are. I urge you to search the scriptures to see if the things that you are being taught are true or false.
