I’ve been pondering some of my favorite Charles Capps quotes this week.
Of course, we all hear things from the background of our own understanding and experiences. About 20 years ago, I had a good friend who got ‘turned on’ to the Word of Faith movement.
Having grown up in a more traditional church upbringing, so much of what he said sounded … well … kind of ridiculous to me at the time. Like the time he was practically purple with the flu, yet was declaring himself healed and well.
(errr … Buddy … you don’t LOOK healed and well to me!) 🙂
But when my granddaughter was diagnosed with an incurable condition about 8 years ago, my world got turned upside down and my more traditional and conservative religious upbringing got challenged. Big time!
In the end, I set aside what I thought I knew that God said in the Bible, and starting digging and studying for myself what He actually said. And ultimately, I made a decision. I decided that I was going to agree with what God said instead of holding onto my own opinion of what I think He said or think He ought to have said. And Charles Capps (and several other teachers) had a lot to do with my making that decision.
“The only thing some people know about the Bible is what they though they heard somebody say they thought they heard somebody say.” ~Charles Capps
