🤔 I'm unsure how things have become backwards. Those who are in the church contending for the faith, crying loud, sparing not, are deemed as off and unruly. Contrariwise, God is not with those who don't. He says,
"His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber" (Isaiah 56:10).
People have become very health conscious, so they have begun reading the very small print of these nutrition labels to identify what may be hazardous unto their health.
Now, the scriptures says, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success"
When one has brought these very small print unto the church, saying, "Hey, we need to get rid of this. This is hazardous to our health." They are refused, put out the house, shunned, sat down -- whatever.
King David asked his brethren a question when they persecuted and chastised him for his zeal for the Lord and courage. He simply replied, "Is There Not a Cause?" (I Samuel 17:29) This life of Christ is about destroying the works of Satan. Don't allow anyone or anything to cause you to be stagnant or apathetic or quench God's Spirit.
Eating from a tree seems small, miniscule, irrelevant, insignificant in our eyes, but it's big in God's. "It's the little foxes that destroy the vine." Pay attention to those whom God identifies and magnifies these small foxes of society or of the Body. 🙏
