Fancied Apostles

(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

The religious spirit has always been active even among those who have left the traditional system. Some even fancy themselves as “apostles.” They think that their own limited, flawed understanding and teaching is the standard whereby others are measured. They imagine that they are somehow the ordained yardstick by which all others are judged, and that it is to their job to be the doctrinal police. They even attempt to justify their arrogance and pride by citing certain passages of Scripture. Thus under the guise of such religiously abused words as “rebuke,” they surreptitiously bring others into bondage while speaking of freedom.

In II Corinthians 1:24 Paul wrote,

Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith you stand.

The Concordant Version reads,

Not that we are lording it over your faith.

If anyone had the authority to lord over another’s faith, surely it would have been Paul, the apostle; but not even he assumed such audacious supremacy.

Those of us who walk by faith have the freedom from being dominated, manipulated, pressured and coerced into someone else’s own personal belief system – “for by faith we stand.”

The True Basis of Redemption

by — A.P. Adams (1848-1920)

This widely circulated work shows that redemption is a part of creation, and hence its success depends, not on the creature, but on the Creator. It is based on Job 14:15, where it is declared that God “will have a desire to the work of His hands.”
