If it doesn't stand in the Light of God's Word, then we cannot say that we accept it as truth or reality.
It doesn't matter how heartfelt it may sound, it doesn't matter how much we "understand," it doesn't matter how much it is accepted by others.
What matters is what God says.
And if we are unsure about whatever is being presented to us--whatever messages are being thrown our way--then go to the Word of God. Search the Scriptures and pray for wisdom. If you still feel unsure, then please, make no statements on the matter until you know what God's Word says.
I'm not talking about matters in which we have freedom in Christ--like singing traditional hymns vs. contemporary praise songs. I'm talking about matters that are central to our faith, who we are as Christians, how we represent God and His character; how all of that is reflected in our lives as women, wives, mothers.
We tread on very dangerous ground when we are 1) unsure of our thoughts and positions, 2) we listen to things that are not founded in the Word of God, and 3) make bold statements about these things. We must be careful because people are listening to us, watching us, and sometimes emulating us. The reality is that we have to do our best, through the power of the Holy Spirit, not to cause someone else to stumble, or cause others to stray away from the Truth of Jesus Christ, found in the Word of God.
Trust me, I know no one is perfect, I certainly am not. But that doesn't mean that we can't encourage each other to strive for that goal--perfection in Jesus Christ. Our human imperfections don't mean that we give up, give in, turn a blind eye or simply accept the lies that may come our way. We have to focus on the Truth.
We must remember who brings confusion, doubt, uncertainty, lies--the evil one. Confusion and disorder are not of God, not at all. We must guard our hearts, our minds and our homes because satan is busy, seeking to stir up trouble in whatever way he can.
Trust God, seek Him, study His Word and do not waver!
In His love,
be steadfast, immovable,
Finisher of our faith;
endured the cross,
Jesus said to him, “I am the Way,
the Truth, and the Life.
and he who seeks finds,
