Commander Con

I have noticed that we give more commands than we follow. Two examples are telling others to praise God and pressing people to have faith in God.

Praise Con

How do we command more than we comply when it comes to praise? Saying the word hallelujah as if it was a thing we say to God. It ain’t and some demon has infected us with “hallelujah is the highest praise”. If we knew what hallelujah means we would not harbor the thought that we can say it to God.

Faith Con

“Have faith in God” seems to shake a tree with no fruit. Remember when our Lord said that the faith of a woman was rare in all of Israel? Luke 7:9

When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.

The con in our DNA

That was an early signal that faith is neither a Jewish (Judaic) nor a Messianic exclusive. So why is so much time devoted to getting people who are BELIEVERS to believe that God is just waiting to see their faith and give them a miracle?

In for a con or conning for an in?

Are we more in love with what God can do than with what he does?
