“Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 16:17)

Every generation of the Church has its own popular lens through which it looks at and interprets the scriptures.  And in this popular lens, you will find both true revelation and worldly trendy-ness. That is why it is so important for each generation, at times, to press past popular opinions and commentaries and sermons, and to ask the Holy Spirit for a fresh, more objective view of the scriptures.

But this can only happen through EFFORT and DIGGING and TIME AWAY from both popular and church culture, allowing the Word and the Spirit to teach us. And if we do this, we will find things more glorious than we could possibly imagine.
