The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? (Jeremiah 17:9 ESV)
Christian men and women are human and therefore often pray, worship, and read the Bible without consideration of the personal prejudices which influence their thinking about these practices. We allow our feelings to become the unassailable doctrines of our belief without the Berean’s objectivity and careful study of the Word of God. This is a self-centered theology driven by our emotions and personal whims. The basis upon which we decide what the Scriptures actually mean is driven by how it makes us feel. To any thinking Christian, this system is unacceptable.
God requires that we seek Him as He has presented Himself in the Bible. As Jesus said:
“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
