Discrimination In The Body Of Christ by Adeyemo Iyanu (Brainzcoded)
Nigerian Renowned Gospel Music Blogger Adeyemo Iyanu (Brainzcoded) who is the CEO of gospeljingle.com shares a powerful message titled “Discrimination In The Body Of Christ” where he explains why believers no longer differentiate between Human Doctrine and Scripture Doctrine and the effect of the division among churches especially in Nigeria. Read the full messages below.
What is happening in the body of christ these days is very disgusting and disappointing; Discrimination and Condemnation is now too much in the body of Christ, which is very wrong, and the major problem is because people dont understand some basic truth from the scripture.
Believers cant differentiate between Human Doctrine And Scriptural doctrine
Many people dont understand that God can tell taiwo not to do something and instruct kehinde to do it, i.e the fact that God tell u personally that u shouldn’t do something does not mean it has become a rules for everybody.
We have so many ways in which christain nowadays judge each other and directly or indirectly participate in DISCRIMINATION. I will only talk about one of it and trust God for more revalation of his word to everybody that read this.
NOW LET ME EXPLAIN BETTER USING THE BELOW EXAMPLE
God Gave Apostle Ayo Babalola instruction that in his church using of earrings and jewelry should be banned.
That was a clear instruction which means as long as u a are C.A.C member u are wrong if you make use of jewelry and earring, but that does not mean if u see someone from another church/denominations using it, you should condemn the person and start seeing d person as a sinner, because what makes you righteous is not your dressing, infact it’s not your work or service for God that makes you righteous, Righteousness is a finish work of God for those that believe in Jesus i.e Righteousness is by Faith, you cant add to it or subtract from it (Romans 3:22 )
We should be able to differentiate between human doctrine and Bible doctrine, looking at d root of the issue of earring and jewelry, studing the book of Exodus well, u would find out that earring and jewelry was not d issue with God it was the heart of the isrealite that God was dealing with.
LETS CHECK THROUGH SOME VERSE OF THE SCRIPTURES AND SEE WHAT GOD SAID ABOUT IT
Exodus 3:22: but each woman shall ask of her neighbor, and any woman who lives in her house, for silver and gold jewelry, and for clothing. You shall put them on your sons and on your daughters. So you shall plunder the Egyptians.”
In Exod. 35:22, The Israelites donate their jewelry and other precious assets to God, to help build the tabernacle (Read Exod. 35 for better understanding)
Another verse of the scripture quoted below,
Ezekiel 16:8-14: 8 “‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your naked body. I gave you my solemn oath and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Sovereign Lord, and you became mine.
9 “‘I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you.
10 I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put sandals of fine leather on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments.
11 I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck,
12 and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head.
13 So you were adorned with gold and silver; your clothes were of fine linen and costly fabric and embroidered cloth. Your food was honey, olive oil and the finest flour. You became very beautiful and rose to be a queen.
14 And your fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, because the splendor I had given you made your beauty perfect, declares the Sovereign Lord.
Now looking at those scriptures above, can we say God is actually against using of jewelry? Hmmm answer it in your heart, I pray may the lord Give us understanding,
NOTE: God is coming for a united church, your denomination is not what guarantee heaven, (it is your relationship with God)
Do not judge anybody, dont see yourself as the most righteous person because of the way you dress or your service for God. man sees the appearance but God sees the Heart.
Moral: Righteousness is by Faith, u cant add to it or subtract from it (Romans 3:22 )
