Don’t Speak for God Unless God Has Spoken

Putting words in the mouth of God is a very, VERY SERIOUS OFFENSE. We are to speak humbly, meekly and yet boldly where God speaks. We remain silent on God’s behalf where God is silent. That is not to say that we can’t have preferences, opinions and ideas of our own based on what we see and read, BUT we must be OH SO CAREFUL when speaking FOR God himself.

Be so very careful not to let your culture and self-centric preferences, values, fears, biases and opinions to become the filters through which you read and quote God’s Word. Our purpose, our culture and our values must be defined and determined by God’s Word.
