Showing the state of our nation in the light of God’s Holy Word

Why is it there is so much error in the Church of God?

The only authoritative Teacher in the Church of
God, the only true Prophet, is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Why is it there is so much darkness and crudeness in the books we read, and in the sermons we hear?

Why is it that we see so much ignorance and obscurity in setting forth the truth of God?

Why is it there is so much error in the Church of God?

It is because men will not sit at the feet of Jesus and learn of Him. Men would rather learn of their fellow men than of the ‘God man’.

They prefer human writings to the Divine.

They prefer the school of man, to the school of God.

And this is one reason why there is so much false doctrine, the teaching that causes to err, both from the pulpit and from the press.

We may be carried away by great learning, brilliant genius, and apparently profound piety; but if we place ourselves at the feet of Jesus as a lowly disciple, and there receive our views of truth, we
shall then understand those profound mysteries of God’s revealed Word, which are hidden from the worldly wise and prudent, but revealed to those who become learners of Christ.

Octavius Winslow (1808–1878)

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Matthew 11:29.
