For we are not fighting against flesh and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
These days, as believers, we not only have to go against the wiles of the devil, apparently we now have to battle each other and the religious spirit that is running rampant. For What? To prove I know more than you or I am better than you! “Well my church believes this” or “The bible says that tongues have ceased”! What does God say? LOVE!!!!
I am overwhelmed at times by the way “Christians” tear each other apart and leave nothing left untouched. We have become like vultures on the internet-via twitter, facebook, Google+ whatever your social network of choice may be, just looking for a believer to say something in a way you don’t agree or maybe you don’t have enough faith to believe. Why is this? Why do we waste our days that God has blessed us with doing the works of the enemy, that is really what we are doing if there is any ounce of selfish wicked intention in that facebook comment let’s face it…we are wrong!
Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe you or they haven’t received that revelation yet, that God might have you both strong in separate areas, like he is the right arm and you are the left. We need to take a step back and examine if this is truly what God wants us to say to God’s child or is this just what “I FEEL” like saying. What do you think that atheist is thinking when you are forwardly agreeing with him or that other unbeliever that is on the fence whether they believe or not...is he going to choose Jesus then? So you really think this glorifies God? If you don’t agree with something another believer posts, why not just pray for them? Take it to throne first and foremost. We are the body of Christ, supposedly uniting to fight on the same side…the Good side...the winning side...please remember this.
The enemies plan is to divide and conquer, there is no need to corner a new Christian and make them feel like they have blasphemed our father or they just aren’t cutting it, cause if you are truly walking the path of God you know It’s not easy and it takes a lifetime to mature. Encourage don't tear down! Let’s not forget who the enemy is shall we. Be Blessed and stay in LOVE!
