- Not every one who is in church is in church. The fact that someone attends all the Church meetings does not mean he/she is truly in Christ. It makes sense that the Bible tells us to try every spirit (1 John 4:1). In the end, actions speak louder than words because it is not only by hearing the Word but by doing it (James 1:22-25).
- Plain ignorance: One of the comments I received was “If you know that it is wrong and you still do it, that’s different from being convinced that something is right“. In the end, we need to know things for ourselves according to what the Bible says on that subject.
- Pride: There’s something about humility and being in subjection to authority. Being haughty and fighting with your leaders (Jennifer and her choir leader) is a signal that something is wrong. The Bible tells us in Philippians 2:6-11 to have the mind of Christ which in effect is Humility.
- I’m not really sure how Ola pulled off Jennifer not meeting his friends or ever being to his house but he did (Lol, it’s my story and I say he did). I know it’s not foolproof but getting to know enough details about someone you want to get involved with reduces the chance that the person won’t be who you expected.
Mehn, this story has enough things to be cited, so I’d just leave your mind to wander and perhaps your hands to type a comment.
Food for thought:
Romans 13:1 “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
