1 JOHN 2:26 ESV These things I have written to you about those who are trying to deceive you.
Being misled in this present time has gone past being naive and gullible. You can be street smart and still be misled.
In a bid to meet up with societal expectation and standards, we thread on dangerous paths that could really beat down the good in us and our home training.
In a discussion with some senior folks sometime this week, the phrase “Aiye n se iru e” (translated as “it’s a norm, everybody does it”) kept being the bench mark of our conversations.
Basically, the talk was about trendy ungodly lifestyles in our generation which has moved from being trendy to being a culture.
By the statement above, it is assumed that something must definitely be wrong with you if you don’t live according to these standards.
It could be tiring when we go to these so called senior folks for advice and what we get is a list of ungodly advice wrapped in “there is nothing new under the sun”.
Sometimes, it is hard to unmask these things, considering the fact that most of them come from really sincere people who are more experienced or advanced in age.
Statements like “you have to sleep with him to secure your relationship”, my sister NA DEM.
“Are you sure you are a man at all? You have a babe and you haven’t parted the red sea”, my brother NA STILL DEM.
ROMANS 12: 2 says and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
We might be in the world but we aren’t of the world and so we do not live by it standards.
The scriptures wasn’t joking when it said ‘be not conformed to this world’.
We are of a different realm. That everyone is doing it is not our standard neither is it the acceptable nor perfect will of God.
2TIM 3: 16( KJV) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
So have it at the back of your mind that whatever doesn’t correlate with the word of God is outright error, nothing more nothing less.
As regards all that concerns your relationship and life in general, “Oga shine your eye, shine am well well”
Don’t consult wrong sources, speak to godly relationship coaches, daily read devotionals here to refresh your life and relationship.
If you notice someone tends to preach any gospel contrary to the word of God to you, disassociate from such, so they don’t feed your spirit with trash.
