Obstacles To True Religion

Turning Points Series Quote #5

Quote #5

"He (Jesus) came to scatter the heavenly grain of truth. And His parable teaching itself was the seed with which the most precious truths of His grace were sown. From the natural seed cast into the soil, Christ desires to lead our minds to the gospel seedthe sowing of which results in bringing man back to his loyalty to God.Christ Object Lessons Pages 33

"So the Servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?Matthew 13:27 KJV

The Obstacles

  • Engaging in forms & ceremonies without a biblical basis of their object.
  • Following maxims, traditions & enactments that prevent an understanding and practice of true religion.
  • Confusing worldly policies and ambitions with that of Gods principles.
  • Family, friends & associates are a hinderance to the execution of the convictions of the Holy Spirit.
  • Human theories, speculation, Phillosophical and literary essays are given pre-eminence & also contradict the word of God.
  • Religious leaders teach according to their own judgement and not according to divine inspiration.
  • Skeptical sentiments, scientific research is used to cast doubt on the word of God.

The Purpose

Christ had come, not as a king, but as a sower; not for the overthrow of kingdoms, but for the scattering of the seed; not to point His followers to earthly triumphs and national greatnessbut to a harvest to be gathered after patient toil and through losses and disappointments.
