Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 64 (08-27-19)

Synopsis

Follow along in the 13th chapter of John, as Jesus is soon going to be arrested and ultimately go to the cross and then to the victory of the resurrection. This is the time of Jesus in his last days. He is going to teach the most important elements of his entire ministry. If you or I knew we had only a few weeks left to live, we would probably give the most important instructions to the ones we love. So it is with Jesus.

Jesus is in a rented room, having the last meal he would ever have on earth with his disciples. He, being the creator of all things, God in the flesh, stoops down and washes the disciples feet. This was done in an attitude of service, showing great humility. Peter, of course, spoke up, as he usually does, not understanding why Jesus was doing such a thing.

Peter asked, “Why are you washing my feet?” Jesus said, “ If you do not let me wash your feet, then you have no part in me.” What is Jesus really saying? “Listen, I am going to a cross, and at that cross, your sins will be placed on me, and not just your sins, but the sins of the entire world. Let me bear your sins for you, for you cannot bear them. Let me wash you clean at the cross. Then I will rise again. Wait for the promise of the Holy Spirit, whom I will give you. He will explain all things to you. Trust me in this plan that God has worked out for you. Listen and believe my words. For they are truth, the words God wanted me to say. They are words of life for you.”

As in the world today, there is a pecking order mentality, where those who are servants, waiting on tables, are considered the lower class citizens. Natural man has puffed up pride, thinking he is better than someone considered below their status in life. Pride says, “How dare I stoop down to such a lower class”. But Jesus, who is God and creator of the universe, stoops down to wash the disciples feet, taking on the role of a servant. Jesus is showing the disciples to not act like the world does. There is a proper way and a better way to live. You are to consider others better than yourselves. You are to serve one another in love. It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Many people have thought about this passage as a message about forgiveness. No, it is a message about servitude. But if it was a message on forgiveness, then what conclusions could be drawn? Did man initiate his own forgiveness? Did any man ask Jesus to wash his feet? No. Jesus initiates and man responds. Man responds in belief or disbelief. God did not consult us in creation and he did not consult us in salvation. He just did it.

So what did God do? He came to die on a cross to take upon the sins of the entire world. He did this in order that the cause of death, which is sin, would be taken away. Then, after sin is taken away, he received the command from His Father to be raised from the dead. This is so that, Jesus being an eternal being, can offer eternal life, His very life to man.

This is the condition of the world. Man is dead, and although he has the ability to choose life, he is dead to spiritual things. Man was born dead to the Spirit since the time sin entered the world through the choice of Adam. Adam was created alive spiritually, but when given the choice to choose for himself right from wrong or to remain dependent on the Holy Spirit of God for life, the one who is the way, the truth and the life, he chose his own way, a choice of rebellion and independence from God. Adam died due to his sinful choice. The Holy Spirit left Adam due to sin, and sin caused his spiritual death. He died to the person who vacated him, the Spirit of God, whom God had said that the day you do this you shall surely die. All men have been born dead since.

God has always been the initiator. Seeing man’s condition since the fall of man, He chose to send Jesus into the world to rescue humanity from a certain death. He came to give man the option to choose life. The law of causality, that says when there is an effect, there is a cause of that effect, and the effect is not greater than the cause. That same law applies in the spiritual realm.

The Christian world has spiritual dyslexia. We think we are the initiators and God is the responder. Nothing can be farther from the truth. If I am the one who initiates to God and I can cause him to be the effect, and I am the cause, then I have become greater than God. We live by a law of causality. The effect of something is never greater than the initiation of something.

Just as Peter, as well as all the other disciples, did not understand what Jesus was saying, we, being born in darkness, born dead in sin, do not naturally understand the things of God. How could we in our state of death? Jesus just wants us to trust him. Peter was just more vocal than the rest, and would often put his foot in his mouth. So we learn from what Jesus spoke, correcting Peter, who, in his compulsive nature, was so quick to speak what he was thinking. Of course, God knows all things already. He knew Judas would betray him so that scripture would be fulfilled.

There are so many things natural man thinks of to receive forgiveness of sins. The Jews stumbled over the words of Jesus, thinking they can go through the law of Moses to get their sins forgiven. They thought they could continue sacrificing a bull and a goat to get their sins forgiven. No, the system they were under, the Old Covenant system, was only meant to last until the time of Christ. It was only ever meant to temporarily cover sin. But Jesus came to take away the sins of the world. That is why he went to the cross.

So, we can understand the Jews since they were at least following an Old Covenant system that God started. Of course, they perverted and twisted it, as all men do. What do people today do? They come up with their own system, contrary to the words Jesus had spoken. The Catholics go to a priest to get their sins absolved, to a confessional booth to get their sins forgiven, or so they think. But they have to keep going back every time they sin. By the fact of having to go back every time, the sacrificial system never has an end, and so sin is never taken away. The Protestants think they can go directly to God to get their sins erased by applying a misunderstanding of 1 John 1:9. But the fact of asking God to do something he has already done is a slap in the face of God. It is asking Jesus to die on the cross again, to shed his blood again. That is making a mockery of the cross, spitting in the face of God, treating as an unholy thing the blood of Christ Jesus that sanctifies, that washes us clean white as snow. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. Jesus shed his blood once and for all for it was of sufficient value, eternal value, to pay the price of death for sin, once and for all.

So often people erroneously think salvation is getting sins forgiven. No. Salvation is life. Sins were already taken away when Jesus shed his blood on the cross 2000 years ago. All men’s sins today are already forgiven before they are even born. But only in Christ have you become a new creation, a forgiven person with the Spirit of God living in you, having the mind of Christ to discern the things of God. Man is dead and in need of life. The only life available to man is the life of God that was offered through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This life is the same Holy Spirit that was once in Adam, and that is also in Jesus as he walked the earth. Salvation is life. It is the restoration of mankind back to Himself, and is available to all men but must be received by faith.

Jesus spoke so often about life. ”Come to me for life.” “I will give you life abundantly.” “I am the way, the truth and the life.” “He who has the Son has the life. He who does not have the Son does not have the life.”

Why then are men so slow to believe the words of Jesus? Have they heard His words? Do they study the scriptures? Or do they just go to one of many denominations in the world today, choosing to believe whatever man might say. Do they believe that baptism saves? Do they believe in being slain in the Spirit? Where is that explained in the scriptures? Does baptism save you? No! Does the Spirit knock you over? No, it gives you life. But, how would you know? Have you understood the meaning of God’s word by studying the word of God and asking the Lord to reveal truth to you?

This is what we have talked about so many times. We have to go to the meaning of the word of God. We can go to what the bible says and never know what it means. You have heard it said, “God said it. I believe it. That settles it.” That is nonsense. No, if God said it, that settles it, whether you believe it or not. But that is not the issue, that God said it and I believe it. The issue is, “God said it and I now know what it means“. The reason I know what it means is because I have allowed the Spirit of God who lives in me to reveal what it means. For apart from the Spirit of God revealing the meaning of the word of God, you will know what it says but you will not know what it means. A computer knows what it says.

The main problem of man is pride. They remain stupid to spiritual things because they are dead already, and do not think that they have a problem that needs fixing, or that somehow they can fix it their own way. Instead of thinking they know something when they do not, they insist that their favorite preacher is correct. They blindly follow whatever any persuasive man might say, whether on radio or television or from a tradition passed down by their parents. They, like the Jews, listen to what their leaders have said instead of stopping to listen to the words of Jesus. Much of the world has the scriptures in their hands. They can pick them up and read. Yes, the Spirit has to reveal truth to you, but it starts by knowing what the word of God says, and having the humility to allow the Spirit to teach you. Do you have the attitude in your heart to want to know the truth? Are you willing to receive it when you hear it?

Consider Peter, who was blind and stupid like all of us once were. He hears Jesus correct what he said and replies, “then wash my hands and feet as well“. Peter was willing to be corrected. He might not have always liked being corrected, but knowing the truth was most important to him. For Jesus said to him once, ““Who do you say that I am?” Peter replied, “You are the Messiah” Jesus said, “No man has revealed this to you. This was revealed to you by my Father in heaven.” When many stopped following Jesus, not willing to accept his teaching, Jesus asked, “Do you want to leave me too?” Peter said, “You have the words of eternal life. To whom shall we go?”

Transcript

Let us turn to the 13th chapter of John. We are coming to the point where Jesus is going to be arrested and ultimately go to the cross and then to the victory of the resurrection. This is the time of Jesus in his last days. He is going to teach the most important elements of his entire ministry. If you or I knew we had only a few weeks left to live, we would probably give the most important instructions to the ones we love. So it is with Jesus.

John 13:1-2
1 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.

So that was the atmosphere at this evening supper. Jesus is there, knowing full well one of his followers, Judas, was going to betray him. Yet the love of God was as strong there as it was for the disciples who were not going to betray him. It is the unconditional love of God that has been given to us in Christ Jesus.

John 13:3-4
3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal,

I am assuming this was in the middle of the meal. The meal had not been completed yet.

John 13:4-5
took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

There is a pecking order of servanthood in the thinking of the world. The lowest form of servants were those who washed the feet of guests. The God of the universe, the one who called the universe into existence, did not think it beneath him to wash the disciples feet.

John 1:1-3
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

Colossians 1:16-20 (KJV)
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Yet, Jesus stooped down at the feet of his disciples and washed their feet, performing the most humble of servant’s activities.

John 13:6-8
6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

7 Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Is that just not like Peter, arguing all the time? There is a lot of speculation of this foot-washing in regards to forgiveness. That is nonsense. It has nothing to do with forgiveness. It has to do with servitude. It is in a hearbeat, an attitude of, “I am not too great to serve my brother in Christ. There is no position I can hold that is of such significance that I would not stoop to wash the feet of my brother”. It is an attitude of servitude. It is an attitude of total humility. That is what Jesus was getting across.

People who talk about this to be about forgiveness fail to realize that not only did no one ask Jesus to wash their feet, but you are not going to do it. He initiated the foot-washing. He did not wait for me to ask to get my feet washed. If this, as many people want to teach, was about forgiveness, then we must keep in mind, that if it was a forgiveness passage, then once again, he is the initiator and we are the responder. That takes us out of the position of us asking God to be forgiven rather than receiving the forgiveness that God has already offered to us. He initiated this. Nobody came to Jesus and asked him to wash his feet. Would you? If Jesus walked into the room, “Would you ask him to wash your feet?” That was the last thing in the world we would have asked Jesus to do. But Jesus would and did initiate washing the disciples feet. That is Jesus. Jesus is the initiator.

The Christian world has spiritual dyslexia. We think we are the initiators and God is the responder. Nothing can be farther from the truth. If I am the one who initiates to God and I can cause him to be the effect, and I am the cause, then I have become greater than God. We live by a law of causality. The effect of something is never greater than the initiation of something.

  • The warmth of the sun is not greater than the sun.
  • My salvation is not greater than my Savior.
  • The car is not greater than the manufacturer.
  • The house is not greater than the builder.

We live by that law, the law of causality. The same thing is true in regards to spiritual truths that he is the initiator of all things. He did not consult us when He created the world. We weren’t there. He did not consult us in creation. He did not consult us in salvation. He just did it. He looked down and saw the condition of man and put into effect a plan to save us, who were not only sinners, but were dead spiritually. And when you are dead, you need life. He could not have given us life without taking away eternally the cause of death, which is sin.

That is why the denial of the cross, to me, is the worst sin a human being can commit on this earth. When Jesus says, “it is finished”, and we say, “No, it is not finished. I got my part in this.”, that is sinning against the knowledge of truth. The Jews went back to their day of atonement. The Catholics go to the confession booth. The Protestants are doing this 1 John 1:9 confessing themselves to death. We need to study the scriptures and find out what they mean.

John 16:9
9 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Jesus is not double-minded. He does not say out of one side of his mouth, “It is finished” and then out of the other side, say, “It is not finished”. He does not say out of one side of his mouth, “I have taken away your sins” and then say out of the other side, “I have not taken away your sins”. He did not say, “I have taken away your sin for eternity, but if you confess I will forgive you”. That is absolute nonsense and double talk. Yet people will proclaim that as truth as if it was written on their forehead. There is only one thing we can do when we sin and that is to say, “Thank You”. If Jesus did not take away all the sins, all of it, because he forgot one, and then if he had forgotten one and you did it, then you are a goner.

Hebrews 10:26-31
26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

We have made a mockery of the cross, treating as an unholy thing, the blood of the covenant that sanctified us. We preached the cross, but we might as well have a bull and a goat on the top of our church in the way we treat forgiveness. Jesus said, “it is finished”. He means exactly that for there is nothing more to do. Jesus said he is not coming back to bear sin because there is no more sin to bear. He is coming back to bring salvation for those who are waiting for him. Until we finalize the cross, we will never realize the resurrection. Yet we walk around dead as hammers not having a clue about the life living in us. Jesus Christ is alive, living in you. He is there to direct your mind, to control your emotions, to direct your will. He is there to give life to the dead. That is what he came to do. I was born in this world as dead as a hammer with the ability to choose life.

John 5:21
21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.

John 10:10
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 14:6
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

1 John 5:12
12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

The whole issue of salvation is life. We stopped at the cross. We tell people that you are saved by getting your sins forgiven.

Romans 5:10
10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

We were forgiven of our sins when we were born. What does it mean you were enemies? You are lost. Now, the death of his Son, being an accomplished fact, that reconciled us to God, let us read on. That being an accomplished fact, what are you saved from? How much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! His life! You are not saved by the death of Christ but by the life of Christ. The cross is what enables us to cross over from death to life.

John 5:24
24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”

The cross is not the destination. It is the means to the destination. If I am going to cross over from death to life, I am going to go over on the cross, where Jesus bled and died, to take away my sins so that when I reach the other side, and come into the resurrected life of Christ Jesus, I come in cleansed of all my unrighteousness, and I come in forgiven of all my sins, and receive the life and righteousness of Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:22
22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,

Romans 5:17
17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

Colossians 1:13-14
13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Jesus is saying to us, who are a child of God, that he is the one who redeemed us by the blood of the lamb, his blood shed on a cross. What is amazing is how dead people can be. There are people who have listened to this message for 10 or 15 years, and they are just as dead today. Their mind cannot grasp things. They just hear surface stuff. I do not want to go deeper. They do not get into deeper stuff.

James 4:6
6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”

God gives grace to the humble and He resists the proud. The proud one is the one who says, “Oh, I know that”. I hear that all the time. “Well, if you knew it, then tell me about it”. “Oh, I cannot tell you about that”. “Then you do not know it. For if you know something, then you can tell me about it”. Pride is the one thing that keeps us from coming to Christ as our Lord and Savior. We live in our stupidity and in our death. We do not have sense enough to know we are dead and in need of life, and to come to Christ Jesus for that is what he came to give us, and that is life.

If you come to Christ Jesus, there is supposed to be a change that takes place. You are to become a new creation, not an old one.

2 Corinthians 5:17
17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

It means the old life style you used to live should be over with or in the process of being over with. Many times that does not happen overnight. Conversion experiences are all over the place. For some people, their behavior changes immediately. With others, that change in behavior takes a while. The issue is, if you are in Christ, then you will never be happy in your old life style. If you are, then something is wrong with you. When God says something is evil, it is evil. When God says something is sin, it is sin. It is not an alternate life style. It is not gay. It is perversion. We as Christians have to call things as they are. If I am a worrier then it is not a healthy concern. Worry is not of God. We have to understand these things. What do the lost do? Where do they meet with their friends? In a bar of a coffee shop? A bar! You do not belong there any more in the bars. Alcohol destroys brain cells and I have no more to lose. My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. There is a behavior associated with lost people. God says, “I want you to be over here. I want those words to come out of your mouth to be encouraging words. I want you to get out of that pride, ‘Do not tell me to wash someone’s feet. That is the servant’s job over there.’” That is the attitude of pride God wants me to dismiss.

Peter did not understand that. “Lord, that is the job of a servant.”

John 13:8
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

Jesus is saying, “Unless you allow me to cleanse you of all your unrighteousness, unless you allow me to take away your sins, you will have no part with me at all. You cannot come to me until you allow me to do what I came to do, to take away your sins at the cross and give life to you who are dead. You will have no part with me.” People can say, “I want Jesus resurrection but I do not want his cross”. Jesus says, “Well, that does not work that way. You have to come to me by faith in what I accomplished for you”.

John 13:9
9 “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”

I love Peter’s reply. Peter says, “If that be the case, do not just wash my hands and feet, scrub me from top to bottom”. Peter always had his foot in his mouth. I guess you could say Jesus washed his mouth too since his foot was always there.

John 13:10
10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.”

Who was he talking about? Judas.

John 13:11-12
11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?

This is what we have talked about so many times. We have to go to the meaning of the word of God. We can go to what the bible says and never know what it means. You have heard it said, “God said it. I believe it. That settles it.” That is nonsense. No, if God said it, that settles it, whether you believe it or not. But that is not the issue, that God said it and I believe it. The issue is, “God said it and I now know what it means“. The reason I know what it means is because I have allowed the Spirit of God who lives in me to reveal what it means. For apart from the Spirit of God revealing the meaning of the word of God, you will know what it says but you will not know what it means. A computer knows what it says.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10
9 However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived” –
the things God has prepared for those who love him –

10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

That is exactly why you can sit and memorize scripture and not have a clue what it means. Bob recalls a time he was speaking in Atlanta, GA in an Exchanged Life conference. At the end of one of those lectures, a lady came to Bob and asked to talk to him. She showed him a date in her bible, where she had heard a message on imputed righteousness and how her life had changed. She was emotional with tears of joy for the understanding of such truth. Bob looked at her and said, “I am glad it has done something for you but it has not done anything for me yet”. Bob knew what it said and could teach what it said. At that time Bob had not understood what it meant. That happened later when he did come to understand what it meant to have Christ’s righteousness imputed to you. Jesus is asking the same question, “Do you understand what I have done for you?”

John 13:12-15
“Do you understand what I have done for you?”, he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”

I do not think it is foot washing he was talking about. I shine your shoes today, and you shine others shoes tomorrow. The issue is not in what he is doing but his attitude of servanthood. This is the attitude Jesus is teaching us to have, “There is no assignment I would not do to serve and help my brother”.

John 13:16
16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master,

This is the essence of what Jesus is sharing.

John 13:17
nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

What that says to me as a teacher or minister is that if I have been sent by God to be a messenger, I am certainly no greater than you. So why do people walk around thinking they are greater.

1 Corinthians 3:4-6
4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings?

5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe – as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.

Who is Peter and who is Paul? They are only servants. God causes the growth in people’s lives. One man waters and another man sews but God causes the growth. Paul never saw himself as a big deal. He never saw himself as one governing the church. He saw himself out of the eyes of Jesus.

Again, he is saying if you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. If you do them, then you are putting into practice what he said to do. That is where obedience comes in. It is my love of God that results in my dependence upon God that then results in my obedience to God. The attitude of my dependency comes from the love of God. I love because He first loved me. He met us where we were. He came down to the miry clay, to my condition of death, and pulled me out of that. If God says for us to do something we will be blessed when we do them.

Act 20:35
35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

Do I really believe that? Then why do we not do more giving? Why do we not give more to one another? You are blessed by it. You feel good doing it. God is not saying that He will zap you if you do not do it. It is does not mean you will get ten times more when you give. It simply means you will be blessed by what you have given whether you ever get anything back from God or not. That is between you and God. You did not give to get. You give because there is a need. You give to meet that need.

John 13:18-19
18 “I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: ‘He who shared my bread has turned against me.’”

19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am. 20 Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”

You go out, as a child of God, to where you work or play and you tell people about this marvelous Jesus and they reject you, who are they rejecting? Him. When you reject him you are rejecting the God who sent him. You are rejecting the totality of God. When God has sent a servant here on this earth, and you reject that servant, you are rejecting God who sent him. Whether you think he is worthy or not is not the issue. The issue is if God has sent you and you are rejected they are rejecting the God who sent you. A lot of people say they have been sent by God. One of the ways to know whether they are sent by God is by what they are teaching. What sets you apart, and how God sets you apart, is not in how you dress or the way you act, or how many radio stations you own or how many radio stations you are on, but He accepts you, predicated on, how do you know truth.
