Honest Questions

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

In considering any subject, because of traditions and prejudices, we must exercise great care if we are to be honest in dealing with them. We should examine our beliefs by some questions such as these:

Are my beliefs and practices based upon the revelation God has given?

Do my beliefs and practices come from the Word, or have I read them into it?

Are my beliefs and practices the fruit of considering all the truth, or are they based upon consideration of only part of it?

Have I gone to the Word to secure the truth, or did I go to it to find support for opinions and practices already determined upon?

If upon turning to the Word to consider all that is revealed there I should be granted the truth as a result, would I receive it, walk in it and be willing to accept all the consequences that come from following such a course? Or, would I put it aside because it clashed with my established views and practices?

    Dear Mr. Sellers, Sir, you pose “Honest Questions” indeed! Perhaps Mark Twain answered these questions when he wrote: “Everyone sometime in their life stumbles unto the truth; however most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing’s happened.”
    Again, perhaps Romans (1:18-32) is the basis for Mr. Twain’s observation.
    Enjoy your work. Thank-you.
