Totally Saved  -Dividing the Word of Truth           Hit Counter

"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."  2 Timothy 2:15   

When I read the phrase, "rightly dividing the word of truth," I see a surgeon with a scalpel in his hands, bent over an exposed patient, about to make a critical incision and begin a life-saving surgery. Cut in the wrong place and the patient dies.

From my personal experience and study of scripture, I have to conclude that a surgeon named "Legalistic Perfectionism" has cruelly chopped open the chest of the Saved-Lost church, and pierced her tender, loving heart with his deadly knife.

On the other hand, a surgeon named "Cheap Grace" has taken the machete of sin and hacked away at the arms, legs and muscles of the Always-Saved church, leaving her paralyzed and viciously crippled.

 

The tumor of sin that was inside both churches has remained untouched, and continues to spread its cancerous cells throughout the entire body of both churches, until even Christians don't generally like to go to church anymore. Church should be a place of more and more healing, not a slaughterhouse for more and more hurting!

 

The problem is the tumor of sin is still there, spreading its death throughout the body of Christ, and since we ALL are joined together in one body, it is absolutely essential that we seek out a compassionate, Godly surgeon, who will take his scalpel and rightly divide the Word of Truth, that we all might be healed. So now through the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, I take my scalpel in hand, and make my incision at the place marked: TOTALLY SAVED!
