1. Philippians 4:13 Doesn’t Mean We Can Do Anything We Want


2. Matthew 7:1-2 Doesn’t Tell Us Not to Judge Anyone Ever


3. Ephesians 2:8-9 Doesn’t Teach We Are Saved by Faith Alone

The FRUIT WE BEAR DAILY matters. Are we the salt of the earth? The light of the world so that when folks see us they see God the Father in us and glorify His name? That’s what it means to be a light unto the world. 

Liberty, as written and defined in God’s Word does not mean anything goes as long as we say with our lips we have faith in God, we have faith in Jesus. Unless truly regenerated, transformed of heart and mind from within, CHANGED INTO A NEW CREATURE, renewed of spirit and mind by the Supernatural power of the Spirit of God — thus lacking the desire for those things we once did, once were, having REPENTED, turned aside, turned away from those things to live for Christ.

Yes, we are saved by faith alone, in Christ alone but that is only the first step in the journey fighting the good fight to THE END. Being separate from the ways and doctrines of the world, a peculiar people, visibly different in how we carry ourselves, speak, work, and live — with Christ in us. Becoming more like Christ by the fruit we bear each day. 


4. Jeremiah 29:11 Doesn’t Promise All Christians Will Prosper


5. John 14:14 Doesn’t Teach That God Will Give Us Everything We Want


6. 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 Doesn’t Mean Women Can’t Preach


7. Exodus 20:7 Doesn’t (Just) Say We Can’t Use God’s Name as a Curse Word

Where is the reverence? The awe? The understanding of just how mighty, awesome, beyond our comprehension is of our God. This ought to give us pause, with the fear of the Lord within us to not take lightly the speaking, and writing of the name of God, of Jesus Christ as punctuation, as if Their names are like any others on this earth. Reverence. Humility. Awe. Wonder. Submission. Discernment. Getting back to understanding what the name of God, the name of Jesus means. And only speaking, writing Their names appropriately according to the Word of God’s instruction to us.


8. Matthew 18:20 Doesn’t Mean God Is More Likely to Answer Group Prayers


9. Matthew 5:38-40 Doesn’t Mean We Should Allow Others to Mistreat Us

11. 1 Timothy 6:10 Doesn’t Say Money is the Root of All Evil
