I once had a pastor say he couldn’t allow “his” people to believe God still speaks to people today, other than through his Word. He went on to explain he said it because there are too many “strange voices” out there.
And there are strange voices in the world. I also fully believe the Bible is the main source of his communication, but God still speaks. If he doesn’t, let’s quit suggesting people pray about how much God wants them to give to the building fund.
When we try to protect “our” people by keeping them from his provision, we make them our people and keep them from fully understanding they are really his children. Let us instead teach them how to know God more intimately and discern his direction. His sheep know his voice.The Lies Pastors Believe – OutreachMagazine.com
