The Root Cause of Our ‘Mistakenness’



“Jesus said to them, ‘Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God?'” Mark 12:24


In whatever form it takes, within the church and without, isn’t this what our ‘mistakenness’ ultimately boils down to?

that we do not

1) understand (KNOW) Scripture or

2) the power of God?


To the magician opposing them and seeking to turn others from the faith

“…Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze on him, and said, ‘You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord?'” Acts 13:9,10


The Word of God is our plumb line to measure all else by. This is our ‘starting point’, and we line up the rest of our lives with this standard, in the midst of a world that uses itself and situational ethics and circumstances as their plumb line of truth and are therefore sadly led astray, making crooked the straight ways of the Lord and leading other on that same path.



May we hear, know, lovingly share,


and act on the word of God


and LIVE abundantly.
