As It Is Written!

Christianstogether ~ Bringing Christians together
When we share our faith with others, do we compromize Gods word to be politically acceptable? Or do we preach it as it says?

Jesus himself was tempted by satan where satan used the Word of God in the wrong way in order to try and decieve Jesus Christ into worshipping him. Jesus answered "It is written...."

 Jesus was perfect, so even though he had not eaten and was taken into a harsh dry enviroment, He did not give in!

We as human beings are not God so we are weak. Eve was tempted by satan who decieved her into eating the apple that God said not to eat, and then she gave her husband some to eat. How did satan tempt Eve? By manipulating Eve into dissobeying a direct command from God. Adam and Eve only had one rule to keep in those days! Do not eat the fruit of the tree of Knowledge.That was their only rule that God had given them and satan who knew his time would end due to his pride where God had him cast out of Heaven, so would one day face eternal punishment, decided to corrupt Gods creation in total evil spite!

So how do we avoid satans deception today when we preach or share the Word of God?
By preaching it without corrupting its meaning. It is better to preach it word for word exactly as it says than spend hours sharing elaborate details that take people away from the whole meaning of Gods Word!

Paul started where people were and bui.t on that.
Telling someone they are a sinner may be biblical  correct,  but does not get one a hearing.

In loving the sinner one has to know when to be tough and when to be gentle.
