But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. (Galatians 5:18)
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. (John 16:13)
Without the spirit of truth to give you understanding of the word, then your own interpretations will be full of errors. The lies, errors and falsehoods are no less than doctrines of demons. That's why they are described as an agreement with hell.
Now do we find ourselves agreeing here, saying, that's right. That's what those religious types are like? Or are we applying this to ourselves. Saying oh my, that's what we are like.
Romans warns us of this:
Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,
And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? (Romans 2:17-21)
Are we the scornful ones, doing exactly what we accuse others of?
Luke warns us of this also:
Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye. (Luke 6:42)
It's the easiest thing of all for a Christian to see the speck in his brothers eye, but to pull it out is another matter.
Revelation warns us as well:
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (Revelation 3:17-19)
How are we going to repent if we are unwilling to admit that we are the Laodiceans? Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Let's judge ourselves for all we like sheep have gone astray.
