DOES MAN'S SINCERITY INVALIDATE GOD'S WORD? BY STEVE FINNELL
If men sincerely believe they know the truth, does that belief render God's word null and void?
Eve sincerely believed Satan when he told her she could eat from the tree in the middle of the garden and she would not die. (Genesis 3:1-24)
Did her sincerity keep her from death? No it did not.
If men sincerely believe that water baptism is not essential for salvation, does that invalidate what Jesus said in Mark 16:16....has been baptized shall be saved..?
Does man's sincerity nullify the words of Jesus.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Should you trust the sincerity of your own understanding or should you simply trust in the Lord.
Pride was Satan's downfall. Pride has a tendency to make men believe that their sincerity invalidates the word of God.
SINCERITY WITHOUT TRUTH CANNOT SAVE ANYONE!
