Many times as Christians we can overlook unbiblical teaching or decide not to stand on the truth we have been shown because we don’t want to disrupt our fellowship.

We can be more concerned with belonging or being a part of something than we are with the truth and identity found in Christ.

I just want to encourage you that it’s ok to stand out for the truth, it’s ok to go against the norm, and that we are not called to fellowship just for the sake of it, but fellowship in Spirit in and in truth is extremely helpful and encouraging in the life, walk,  and faith of a believer.

One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that when we study the bible it is important to  make sure we allow it to speak for itself and inform our understanding instead of trying to make what the bible teaches fit into our favorite doctrine, theological movement, or denominational understanding.

If we come to the bible with a specific understanding or interpretation already in place, it is easy for us to miss what is meant to be communicated because we are trying to make it fit what we already think it should say.

The Bible is full of teaching on various topics and instructions on how Christ intends for his church to operate.

One such teaching is the fact that He instructed that no one should be called rabbi, father, etc.

In Matthew 23:8-10, He is speaking to His disciples and the crowd that has gathered, informing them not to follow the ways of the Pharisees and how they do things to be “seen by men”.

Outside of the specific terms being used (there are entire religions built upon using these terms Christ speaks against), there is also an underlying message He is presenting.

Do not put yourself, or allow anyone to be put in a position of authority in your life that only belongs to God!

We have one Teacher, we have one Father, we have one Instructor…God
