Finding Fault

Finding hypocrisy, false teaching and judgmentalism in the church is easy. Finding it in myself is impossible.

To find anything, one must start lookking for it,

It seems that would be so.

At the same time..."Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults." (Psalm 19:12)

Tennyson wrote, " I wake, and I DISCERN the truth". If all that we are is awake to the TRUTH then the errors will be made known to us, including the hidden faults with little effort on our own. It will be up to us (free will) what we do with our discoveries.

At the end of the day do we not, all of us, wrestle with the demons of hypocrisy, false teaching and judgmentalism, realizing that we can do nothing to find peace from these demons apart from the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I think it was Kris Kristofferson who wrote a song that spoke of being, "a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly ficition."

Whether we know our faults or not ... bottom line is we can't fix them ourselves. We can't pull ourselves up by our own boot straps ... we need a redeemer.

"O LORD, my rock and my redeemer." (Psalm 19:14)
