Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Have you ever burped and could smell what you have been eating or had a glint of the taste again?
A clear understanding of just how much good you soulful diet is doing you is when you burp. Voluntary noise with an aftertaste of spiritual diet. Is it a pleasant experience or is it a reminder that you haven’t been on the right diet?
Spiritual diets are much like weight loss diets. The results might not reflect a healthy change. The Holy Spirit is in charge of sending you a signal that your diet is healthy or not.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Just because you like what a preacher says, doesn’t make it gospel. Just because you are joined in fellowship with people that agree with you, doesn’t make you right. In every group there should be a voice of questioning. Even if they are wrong, they are there to learn and grow also. My advice during those moments is to allow the Holy Spirit to judge the smell of another’s burp.
All of us want to be right on important issues. Sound doctrine rises from building upon a sure foundation. Only a master builder can tell you if the stone you just laid is misplaced.
Psalm 119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
