Who Should Christians Follow?

Who Should Christians Follow?

3rd October 2019

At the bottom of this blog I’ve put a link to a video of Joshua Chavez giving a teaching entitled ‘Who Should Christians Follow?’ Using scriptures from the Old and New Testaments, Joshua explains the dangers of following men. He looks at our tendency as Christians to ‘hitch our wagon’ to a particular leader or teacher and go along with everything they say and the risks we take in doing so.

Over the many years I’ve been a Christian I’ve seen this happen many times. I am also aware that this is a common practice among Christians; a practice that can lead to division. The classic example amongst Evangelicals is the division between the Calvinists and the Arminians.

As Christians, we are called to follow Jesus, not men. It is important that we do not rely on the teachings of individual teachers or leaders. Instead we should rely on the Word of God and test everything we are taught by men against the scriptures. Good teachers and leaders should be respected as long as they conform to the Word of God but we must not ‘hitch our wagon’ to one individual above all others.

If you click on the link below you will be able to hear Joshua explain it all in more detail.
