Answer to a swipe.

Hi Simon

You seem to take a swipe at what I said without reading or understanding the context. The righteous shall live by faith and not doctrine. Jesus did not live out of doctrine but only said and did what he saw God saying and doing. He also did not entrust Himself to men because He knew what was in our hearts.

What is the purpose of doctrine? To point us to God, not to tell us how to live our life. What is the purpose of scripture? To point us to God and not to tell us how to live. Why have other believers around us? To point us to God and not to tell us how to live.

God is either able to show us His will for us daily as He did for Jesus or all our doctrines is a waste of time. After all, our doctrine has not really improved the world in over 2000 years and our steadfast clinging to it is so laughable as to actually be sad.

So Simon, unless God shows you what to do regarding first fruits whether you do or don’t, it will be sin. It is only when we live out of faith that we can live righteously.
