What a tragic thing to allow problems, weaknesses or sin to dictate one's theology. I thank God that my doctrine isn't based on what I can or can't do but on what HE HAS DONE. Do I live my life like He's actually DONE IT?
If you've read my blog for a while you already know I'm no stranger to adversity. In fact, if you are a personal friend or just a lurker here, do me a favor and pray for Larry and I all day today. Today is a crucial day for both of us, one that will determine so much for us. We covet your prayers. I don't know what I'd do without all my friends who are praying! Now, with that said, I am believing God's report but no matter the outcome, my faith remains rock solid. Whatever happens or doesn't happen won't change a thing except for the fact that I plan on developing an ever deepening and growing faith.
Too many times we change our theology to accommodate hardships in our lives, or sensitive issues that come up that may not have considered before or had touch our lives. Regardless of how culture changes, our faith is designed to be something that doesn't shift with the changing times. The times they may be a changin', but Jesus...not so much.
I'll stick with Jesus.
