“…that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried
about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning
craftiness of deceitful plotting...“Ephesians 4:14.
In many cases Bible uses example of children as
a positive one, but in this one as a negative one. Children can easily trust
any manipulator who would come with some scheme or evil plans. We should not be
like that. We have to be able to check anything we hear in the light of the Word
of God and if it is right, accept it, but if it is wrong, reject it. Saying no
to the things that are wrong is a character feature of a mature Christian. So,
let’s grow up spiritually.
