True Faith…

Read: Acts 7-8
Marked: Acts 7:42-43, “Then God turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven, as it is written in the book of the Prophets: ‘Did you offer Me slaughtered animals and sacrifices [during] forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? You also took up the tabernacle of Moloch, And the star of your god Remphan, Images which you made to worship; And I will carry you away beyond Babylon.’”

Not only did they follow God in the wilderness but they also followed false religious practices and god’s from other cultures.

God warns us not to add to or take away from His Word (Revelation 22:18). Neither should we add anything to our faith in God; neither the traditions of men, nor false religions.

If we do we don’t wind up with a more solid faith which is really no faith at all because it’s not a true faith. We are to hold fast to the truth. The faith which was once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3).

If we add anything at all let us add to our faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love (2 Peter 1:5-7).
