“You know, I made a comment the other day, I wasn’t being facetious when I commented that, you know I’m thankful for that for personally what its done in my life again, whenever anything like that happens, I look at my own heart. You know, these people are upset, for one reason or another, accusations that are being made, is there any validity to it? Because I know what I am in my flesh, and if there is, I wanna change. I wanna do something about it. And you begin to start, and you examine your own heart, and you go to the Scriptures, and then you find out, you know, what the conflict is all about. And in the process of all that, it’s a thing of finding out the relationship, the personal relationship, to the lordship of Jesus and the authority of His word, to where God’s word must be done. Period. And when, then as the messengers we are hated for the message, then that’s something to rejoice in, when all men speak evil of you, if you are representing the gospel.” – Pastor Scott
Wow. Vague is so Vogue right now. Mistakes Were Made. For us, awww. All better. Let’s kiss and make up. I’m good, you’re good (sorta/kinda). Me bad, so We suffer. Sniffle. Hark, message from God, chin up my little pewpeons. Rejoice. Maybe we can squeeze a little gospel out of this situation after all…thats a pretty big If. Btw, in a general sense, but not specifically, exactly what variety of ‘mistakes’ are we talking about Pastor?
But God says: “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them. Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; As I live, saith the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them. For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out” (Ezekiel 34:1-11)
