Perish the Thought
Whenever one of the these thoughts enters our mind,
it needs to be disposed of promptly.
"How could God . . .?"
Perish the thought that we can think on a level with God.
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways," declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the
earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and
My thoughts than your thoughts."
"It sounds reasonable to me that . . ."
Perish the thought that reason can be the basis for determining what is acceptable to God. Reason is subjective, interpretive, and limited by
personal knowledge and bias.
Then God said to Jonah, "Do you have good reason to be angry about the plant?" And he said, "I have good reason to be angry, even to death."
"I know what it says, but . . ."
Perish the thought that what is written can be rebutted. If we know what the Bible says, that’s all that matters; attempting to rebut truth is vain.
"God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship
in spirit and truth."
"Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth."
"If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
