4 Ingredients in Spiritual Junk Food

4 Ingredients in Spiritual Junk Food

As new believers we feed on pure Gospel "milk" (1 Peter 2:2).

Next we move on to solid food. 

If we refuse solid food, we never mature (Hebrews 5:12; 1 Corinthians 3:2-3).

But there's something just as unhealthy as remaining milk-fed babies. It's junk food teachings which give us a "sugar high" but leave us malnourished.
4 Ingredients in Spiritual Junk Food

Junk food teachings:

1. Downplay our need for regular prayer, Bible reading, and fellowship.

2. Emphasize God’s grace and dismiss personal responsibility.

3. Misuse the words “judge not” to silence Christians who share God's truth about sin.

4. Misapply Scriptures and take them out of context.

Unfortunately, if the Church were a grocery store, we’d notice that the junk food aisles are growing.

Maturing believers understand our need for proper spiritual nutrition. 

More than ever before, we need to maintain a steady diet of prayer, God’s Word, and godly fellowship!
