 Learning of Jesus ~ Octavius Winslow

Why is it there is so much
error in the Church of God?

(From Octavius Winslow's, "Learning of Jesus")

The only authoritative Teacher in the Church of
God, the only true Prophet, is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Why is it there is so much darkness and crudeness
in the books we read, and in the sermons we hear?

Why is it that we see so much ignorance and
obscurity in setting forth the truth of God?

Why is it there is so much
error in the Church of God?

It is because men will not sit at the feet of
Jesus and learn of Him. Men would rather learn
of their fellow men than of the 'God man'.

They prefer human writings to the Divine.

They prefer the school of man, to the school of God.

And this is one reason why there is so much
false doctrine, the teaching that causes to err,
both from the pulpit and from the press.

We may be carried away by great learning, brilliant
genius, and apparently profound piety; but if we
place ourselves at the feet of Jesus as a lowly
disciple, and there receive our views of truth, we
shall then understand those profound mysteries
of God's revealed Word, which are hidden from
the worldly wise and prudent, but revealed to
those who become learners of Christ.

"Learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and you shall find rest for your souls." Matthew 9:29

We must recognize the authority of God's Holy
Writ (His Word}, draw our inspiration from the
Counselor {Holy Spirit}, and receive revelation
from the Only Son {Christ}!!
