You started out well. What happened? Where did you trip and fall, or turn off the pathway? We all seem to start out full of fire and wanting to change the world. Later, we find ourselves to be a bit cynical. We realize we can’t change the world, so we stop trying. Then something happens and suddenly we’re off the path, getting mired down in false doctrine. It doesn’t take much to take us aside into falsehood.
Take a few moments to pray about this. How does it speak to you? You may find the following prayer helpful:
Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
