What we need today are old-fashioned, Bibleloving, gracious, whole-counsel-of-God Christians of conviction. God is not mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap. If he sows to the flesh, he will of the flesh reap corruption. But if a man sows to the spirit, he will of the Holy Spirit reap abundant and everlasting life.
This is not to condemn anyone, but rather to stimulate a desire for purity in all of our lives. Satan’s strategy is to wear down the saints, and Christians need convictions to be able to stand against the devil and resist him in the name of Jesus Christ. Then we will be able to go forward, walking on water by faith and showing Satan that we are more than conquerors (Romans 8).
I do not add to or take away from the Word of God (Deuteronomy 12:32). When I have convictions, the Word of God is the final authority-on marriage, on friendships, and on issues of morality. The Word is the final authority for why the Church is here and how it is to function on the earth. God’s Word is absolute. By the grace and love of God, I commit myself to divine convictions that are based upon the evidence of divine inspiration.
