My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from serving as my priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your sons. -Hosea 4:6 CSB
Please note, they were destroyed for lack of knowledge, not how they feel or what they ‘believe.’ Too often, Christians view doctrine as something divisive and not worth the effort of studying. Sadly, they are deceiving themselves and rejecting God’s directive to study and “show ourselves approved.”
Be diligent to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth. -2 Timothy 2:15 CSB
How do you regard doctrine? Do you spend time studying God’s Word to glean the harvest of knowledge He has there for you?
Open my eyes so that I may contemplate wondrous things from your instruction. -Psalms 119:18 CSB
