How Many Angels Can Sit On The Head Of A Pin? - Part 2

Exactly one year ago today I wrote a blog with this title.  365 days later my answer to the question is still the same.  

I don't care.

I remember some of my profs at Bible College telling me how some people would get caught up in some of the craziest, pointless conversations about faith.  Yes, there were arguments about how many angels could sit on the head of a pin.

Matthew 23:23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others."

Ever heard the saying, "Keep the main thing the main thing?" or "Don't major on minors?"  Jesus is chewing out these religious elitists for missing the whole point about their faith.  While they were faithful to give a tenth of the spices they raised in their garden, they ignored how people were treating each other.  

So how do you protect yourself from this kind of nonsense?

#1 - Following spiritual leadership that makes one's relationship with Jesus a priority - then allow that relationship to oversee all their other relationships in your life.  It's all about Jesus.  So many people are caught up in so many different things about church culture or theology.  Stop, make it about Jesus. 

#2 -  Understand the big picture of who God is before you try to understand His will.   You will have a hard time understanding things like the church, prophecy, and life if you don't understand Him first. The character of God is where you begin.  Learn about His love, grace, justice, anger, compassion, mercy and more!  The more you learn, the more you will understand.  

#3 -  Believe that God is bigger than your doubts. Many people discourage themselves from hearing the truth because they don't believe that God's truth is known to mankind anymore.   Know that God can take care of His truth.  Don't be afraid to test the truth you discover.  God doesn't have a problem keeping His promises.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus,  help me to understand You better today.  AMEN
