Guilt-Trip Preaching - Zac Poonen

Please click the title to get into the link.

It is always wise to to check what is preached/taught at the pulpit, in the blog or book before personal consumption : is there ....?

1. subtle manipulation due to the flesh (manifested as condemnation, heaviness/sadness and guilt/frustration of never ever doing enough) or

2. enlightenment due to the Holy Spirit (manifested as joy, upliftment/edification of the inner man).

Be noble like the Berean christians (Acts 17:11).

We are led by the Spirit, we are not driven or pushed by the Spirit. Only slaves are driven, but the good news is that we are not slaves but sons. The Father loves us (for every infinitesimal gram of body weight we have!) as sons.

The flesh pushes/drives but the Spirit is a gentle Spirit that guides .
