You know what really bothers me? When people draw massive conclusions about key Christian principles such as giftings of the Spirit - off of a few select scriptures instead of taking everything into context. Its unbelievable to me. Some things just aren't looked into, good enough and it bothers me how ignorant we can ALL be at times. My own ignorance in the past and even now makes my heart wince and my spirit ache for truth. I don't care if I went to seminary for 20 years - if I'm not LOOKING for the REAL truth which will edify the body of Christ, and if I'm not searching God's heart out in His word, I will not and CAN NOT give a living message. Instead I will teach a legalizing doctrine that lacks in understanding and binds people instead of freeing them.
Maybe seminary would ruin me. I may not have hours of Bible classes down, but I want the truth - even if it offends my mind. And that's a price I'm willing to pay, if it will edify the Body, glorify my Jesus and punch Truth into the things I preach.
done. I'm off.
