Do You Know What You Believe?

Anastasis Faith
Do you know what you believe?
It can be easy to just go with the flow, can’t it? It’s easy to just accept what your friends say or what the world says. It feels good to be “one of them” and accepted.
But is that what God called us to? Did God call us out of the world just so we can think like the world?
Here are some verses to make you think. I challenge you to talk over what you believe about God, the Bible, and the world with your parents, especially if they are Christians. Also, I encourage you to talk with them about the recent Supreme Court rulings. Weigh everything that you hear against Scripture. Build the foundation of all of your beliefs on the Bible; it is the only solid foundation in this wayward world.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Romans 12:2

“See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.”
Colossians 2:8

 “You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”
James 4:4

 “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
1 John 2:15

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.”
1 John 2:15-17

“Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.”
Ephesians 5:11

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”
1 John 1:7

“Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you.”
1 John 3:13

 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me.”
John 15:18-21 

Is this something you struggle with? Do you know what you believe?
