"But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?" John 5:47
IN JESUS TODAY!
What we believe. is it believable because of the writer? There are some Writers, Teachers, and Preachers that are believable because of their popularity and not believable because of their good words. Today we find a great move to follow messengers that draw huge crowds, a sort of follow the popular crowd scenario. Large masses of people turn out for speakers that have become greater than the message itself! These crowds are willing to follow every word that they say and do all that they say, as though they are under the speakers spell, while the message of truth has become irrelevant because it is unpopular. Herein, we find Jesus questioning those who say that they believe in God based upon the honor of the man, or again the popularity, they no longer seek God's message of truth or honor what God gives, because they have created another to worship as an idol or a Golden Calf if you will, Moses accused them and pointed to God's message about the law, yet they refused to accept this truth, still they claimed to believe in God.
Jesus said, "How can you say that you believe in God when you don't believe his messengers of truth that bring forth the words of God? Do you really believe in God? Then you will believe the words of God and not only the popularity of the messenger! Follow the truth of God's word and not the Golden Calf that the masses of popularity follow.
