A Repentant and Obedient Attitude Toward the Scriptures – John Boruff

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. –2 Timothy 3:7

It amazes me how so many people can attend Bible preaching churches, read or even study the Bible, and still not get it. Mark 4:12: “They may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!” Jesus’ use of the word “turn” means REPENT: it simply means to turn away from sin ALL THE TIME. Maintaining a clear conscience ALL THE  TIME; and not compromising for selfish reasons. Applying the blood of Christ by faith when necessary, to “be forgiven,” but preceded by TURNING away from all that offends God; sin is transgression of God’s laws. Turning away from transgressing attitudes is what God requires; otherwise, they may read and study and hear preaching of the Bible, but nevertheless be “ever hearing but never understanding” the Gospel or the Word of God, and they are cut off from the kingdom of God. The Pharisees were like this. They were Bible scholars, but because they had an unrepentant and disobedient attitude toward the commands of the Bible, and covered up their impenitence with false traditions which make no personal demands on moral improvement.

Such Bible students will go to the lowest Hell.

Let’s not be like those people; let’s have a repentant and obedient attitude toward the Scriptures.
