10 subtle superstitions Christians believe.
1. God lives in heaven.
He doesn’t. He is in you. You are the new heaven and earth.
1 Corinthians 6:19
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.”
2. God cannot bless if you sin.
God has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.
3. You will lose the money allocated for the tithe if you don’t use it to tithe.
God is not a gangster.
4. The harder you pray the more God will answer your prayers.
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
5. Listening to Rock Music will cause you to worship Satan.
That’s like saying earthquakes are caused by people wearing jeans.
6. Christians must balance grace and law.
Grace and Law are not just teachings. They are ages. The age of the Law began to fade away on the cross and was destroyed when the temple and Jerusalem were destroyed.
The Christian is in the age of grace whether he likes it or not.
Law and Grace are also individuals.
Law is depicted for Gentiles as Adam and Jews as Moses. We are now in Christ. Adam died on the cross. Moses died when the Temple was destroyed.
7. We must be careful if not we will be possessed by demons.
We are the new house of God. If you can tell me demons entered in the temple of Jerusalem then I tell you, you can be possessed by one.
8. The end of the world is coming.
There is no such thing as end of the world. The word should be translated as end of the age. According to the KJV the world ended when Jesus died.
For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
9. Only pastors have special anointing.
You are all saints and priests of God. There is also no such thing as double portion of the spirit. It’s a term that meant Elisha is Elijah’s successor. It means he has the first born blessing.
10. God will take care of your problems when you pray.
Since when did you pray for Jesus to come?
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
