This is Calvary Temple-ese for “Do what I tell you or else!” per Pastor Scott. Recently Pastor has been strutting his stuff in order to remind us who’s boss. We are getting a bit disgruntled by the exposure of our less than savoury side. I mean we try to put our makeup on, in order to wow the masses. And Pastor has told us we are a beautiful thing. But facts are awfully stubborn things. The more people tell us we are not the beautiful thing we’ve been led to believe, the more grumpy we are getting. And harder for Pastor to control. Then come Obey Me, saith the Prophet Scott sermons – titled above. Sigh.
But God says, “But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness” (Matthew 6:23). “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them” (Matthew 7:15-20).
