Defining and Denying Spiritual Bondages
Often Christ’s followers are open and eager to embrace and employ so called spiritual terms, traditions and religious fads without requiring or researching the true Biblical basis for such belief or behavior. In the Book of Galatians, the apostle Paul confronts believers who had returned to a “spiritual bondage” in their lives, in which the truth had liberated them. He said, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” (Galatians 5:1 NKJV)
Spiritual bondages are not as many suppose . . . some members of local churches claim that the leadership does not recognize their spiritual giftings and will not allow them to be used by God. These individuals are usually spiritually arrogant, full of pride, and most of the time are looking for a place to promote their “own” agenda.
