Emotional Religion Is A Deception

February 26, 2014

Friends,
Israeliteindeed says at the end of her post yesterday,

“I want to encourage you to embark on the same journey I took. Jesus changes not. He will give you all things necessary for life and godliness through simply knowing Him (2 Pet. 3-4). You need no man to teach you; Jesus is the Teacher by His Holy Spirit, and His anointing illuminating the Word to your obedient and humble heart is enough (I Jn. 2:27). Do you believe that?

If you insist on seeking after emotional and spiritual highs, rather than seeking after Jesus (who, by the way, may lead you into some pretty LOW places), you will continue to be tossed to and fro, carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive (Eph. 4:14). If you insist on making a name for yourself, you may wind up in the entourage of a false prophet who is climbing that same ladder of self-gratification. Jesus taught self-denial, and unless you embrace it, you cannot be His disciple.

Yes, even in the Church, the following Scripture is true:

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Rom. 8:13

An emotionally-led or experience-driven form of Christianity is actually slavery to the flesh. It is death, death, death–no matter how many times it claims to be life.

And what is the fruit of a life lived in the Spirit?

Love, Joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, gentleness, faith, meekness and self-control.”

The entirety of this powerful post, in which she gives us a testimony of her journey, can be read here:

Sincerely,
with love,
Rachel
