Deuteronomy 5:7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
The first commandment states that we should have no other gods other than our God.
Now in our lives there are so many things that can take the place of God, sports, money, cars just to name a few, even our family can become more important to us than God.
But there is another thing that we can place in front of God and that is our Church denomination.
Does the church we attend, the denomination that we hang our hat on mean more to us than God.
At the moment we attend a local semi traditional protestant church and both my husband and myself were brought up in this denomination.
We have had a journey which took us from this church to some pentecostal ones and then back again. That is a long story in itself and will be left for another time
Because of our journey our eyes have been opened to lots of good and some bad things, and we have come to realise that we would rather be known for being Christian instead of a certain denomination.
This isn’t to say that we are ashamed of the denomination of our upbringing, this is to say that we put the word of God over it.
At the moment our church is having some issues that is taking peoples eyes off the word of God.
If our church starts allowing and preaching things that don’t line up with the word of God, what are we to do, do we stay, do we go? Do we follow the word of God or the word of our denomination?? I know that we have been in prayer about these issues for a long time and we are still waiting for direction on this matter.
One thing I do know and that is that God is our God, no denomination will ever take His place in our lives.
Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
Hebrews 6:11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end,
