God has given us all free will, which means that we will all have our own opinion. We must be careful not to ‘paint ourselves into a corner’… with our own personal theology that’s based on our opinion.

Through thousands of years of interpretation, translation and opinion we have people who experience God many different ways. However, there remains only one truth….

2 Peter 1:20  (NKJV)

20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private [a]interpretation,

As we worship God through the perspective of our particular church culture, denomination or ‘non-denomination’, chosen doctrine, traditions, etc., we must be careful that we don’t ‘paint ourselves into a spiritual corner’ of thinking that everyone else is wrong, or separating us from God’s truth…trying to force triangles into square pegs.

How can two people basing their beliefs on the same bible verse believe two different things.? Because one person will always be putting how he or she wants to believe above God’s intended meaning.

For example, many people say it’s a sin to drink any type of alcoholic beverage, when the bible clearly does not say that…

1 Timothy 5:23  (NKJV)

23 No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your frequent [a]infirmities.

So, in order to support their own theology they have to reason that the wine in the bible was not fermented, which is just plain silly. They have painted themselves into a corner to support their theology.

From “ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED”, to those who don’t believe there should NOT be instrumental music in church, to infant baptism, to whether you should be baptized in “The name of Jesus” or “The Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit…there are varying differences of opinion.

To think that one ‘group’, denomination or person has it ALL right is silly. 

The truth is that there’s only one truth…God’s truth. It’s not a matter of whether we’re right or wrong, it’s a matter of whether are not we are in harmony with God’s truth.




God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
