Are They Innocent? Or Something Else?
I don’t know if you have ever received a chain letter, but I have. And I find them bothersome. Do this; do that?
Recently, I have been receiving “so called” Christian chain letters. Again, I was instructed to do this; do that. And if I did exactly as the email requested, I was promised a blessing.
Now for the big question.
Does the Lord require us to forward X number of messages in order to get a blessing? And if we refuse to do as the message states, does this mean we are a follower of Satan?
As strange as it might sound, one of the messages I got recently put forth that exact question at the end of the message.
The message ended with a test to see who followed Jesus and who followed the evil one. The message suggested that those that forwarded the message to ten people were on the side of Jesus. Those that didn’t were not. The message claimed to speak for God when saying that those that did as the message demanded would receive two (Big) favors.
Does any of this sound like something you might find in the Bible?
Yes, the Lord does tell in scripture that if we will do certain things we will get a blessing. But do Christian Chain Letters agree with those scriptures or any scriptures?
I have no doubt that many if not most of those who forward emails like this are true believers. But what of the person who created the chain letter? Can any of us vouch for that person? Do we even know who wrote it the first time?
Let us keep watch always. Remember the evil one goes out to see whom he may devour. Should we allow our minds and bodies to be a meal for Satan?
And don’t believe everything I tell you in these articles either. Though I try very hard to speak the truth in love, I can be deceived.
We all can.
We all can.
Search the Bible for answers. It is truth.
I cannot leave without giving you the opportunity to watch a wonderful video on the Names of God. I was blessed by it. Maybe you will be blessed, too.
