Now whom would you say that you follow? Are the teachings of Christ of more or less value than the teachings of your own pastor, teacher or preacher? Test them to see if their teachings are true to the Word of God. Test yourself to see if you follow the teachings of Christ rather than the teachings of men.
This is what the LORD says:"Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD. He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives."But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." Jeremiah 17:5-8
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. Psalm 118:8
I believed; therefore I said, "I am greatly afflicted." And in my dismay I said, "All men are liars." Psalm 116:10- 11
