Don't Be Ignorant... READ!

I say this with as much love and patience as I can muster...

As God's people, it really bothers me to see so many arguing things, especially in regard to politics, without knowing the FACTS.  I certainly believe God speaks, but when He does, He doesn't share untruths with His people.

Unfortunately, many of us are so eager to stand for something that we rarely take advantage of the spiritual and NATURAL resources we have.  There's nothing unholy about READING, RESEARCHING and ASKING QUESTIONS from the source, before we begin preaching about a thing.

Let's remember that while God does send us into the marketplace, our job is first to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  If we can't preach Jesus, we have no business preaching at all!!!

1 Corinthians 14:38
"But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant."

Ignorance is NOT cute, and it's no wonder the world laughs at the church when we show our ignorance so freely.  Remember, men are supposed to see our GOOD WORKS and glorify our Father in heaven... not our inability to decipher truth from a lie.

READ.  PRAY.  Then ASK GOD before speaking on His behalf.  After all, God knows all the facts, despite our insignificant opinions!
