There is a certain activity I do from time to time that is to the detriment to my mental and spiritual health. I know this, but yet I’m inextricably drawn to switching on the “Christian” TV channel, FAITH TV (channel 341 on Dstv). If it’s not the prophet speaking, it’s the apostle or bishop.
Of course, they ignore Ephesians 2:20 where it says that the church is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, and therefore now that the foundation is laid these offices have fallen away.
Of course, they ignore the fact a bishop is an appointed overseer, not a self-appointed leader of their own church.
Nevertheless, the far greater cause of my mental health issues is the blatant false teaching and distortion of the gospel, all in the name of Christ.
May I warn you that if you base your spiritual life and growth on FAITH TV, you are in great spiritual danger. You need to be committed to a local church to fall under the rule of Christ as God’s word is systematically and consistently preached week by week.
