FAITH IN POSITION.
This is called influencialism. This occurs because we believe that because of the position we hold, we will be able to influence any situation to our benefit. For this reason many people clamour for positions and they are convinced that when they get there, their problems will be over. Or we can believe that our connection to powerful and influential people will provide the answer we have been hoping for.
Psalm 146:3 ‘Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there.’ (New Living Translation)
This scripture is sobering.
FAITH IN RELIGION
Sometimes our faith can be more religion than relationship with God. We then put our faith in religion. We call this phariseism.
Luke 18:9 ‘Jesus also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves, thinking they were righteous, but who looked down on everyone else…’
Faith in religion brings death, but faith in God brings life.
