Again, apostle Paul wrote that "he that is spiritual judges all things" (I Cor. 2:15). Today such a Scripture would be politically incorrect. It appears as if it's "live and let live," "never judge," as long as whatever it is is wrong and not right! The spiritual person is to judge everything based upon Law Book that we call Holy Bible. In fact, fact that so many people are confused as to what's right and wrong and have blurred any DISTINCTION between two is fault of faulty ministers!
Yes, I'm judging them! I'm judging them by their lack of performance since Scripture teaches that they're supposed to "teach my people DIFFERENCE between holy and profane, and cause them to DISCERN between unclean and clean. And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it ACCORDING TO MY JUDGMENTS (not latest poll): and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths" (Ezek. 44:23-24).
We're to view news from a higher perspective, through God's eyes, and judge everything accordingly (Isa. 55:8-9). As is far too evident in our attitudes and actions, we're so far away from true spirituality that it's past time to read God's mind and go by Book! (Deut.17:18-20). Without that stabilizing standard there's only chaos and confusion.
May God bless American and British peoples, and our Jewish brethren, to rediscover law and order of our biblical Hebrew roots and flourish rather than flounder!
