Notice that the last point in Morris's list.

 

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

 

Finally, as the Lord Jesus Himself has commanded, our first priority in every decision should be to do that which honors the kingdom of Christ and His righteousness

His leading verse is SEEK ye first, not HONOR ye first.  The commandment is to seek not honor.  There are plenty of unsaved men who feel they honor God and his kingdom.  It is not honor the kingdom of Christ and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. 

 

Do you see the subtil change in the words of God?

 

Is this not what the serpent did in Gen 3 when he said "Yea, hath God said Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden"?

 

And it is the Kingdom of God not the Kingdom of Christ one is to seek.  For some of you would argue they are the same but they are not the same thing.

 

Remember this general rule of thumb in the Bible, "things that are different are not the same".

 

Kingdom of Christ is found one time in scriptures (Eph 5:5) while Kingdom of God is found 69 times.

 

Kingdom of God are found 55 times in the gospel writings, 6 times in the historical transitional book of Acts, and 8 times in Paul's church epistles.

 

Subtil little errors like this are known as false teachings and are also known as leaven.  The prOBlem is other men of god will parrot these lies until they become so traditionally taught that no one questions the validity, then soon after their teaching becomes rife with false statements such as these.  The average Christian, who does not have familiarity with their Bible, are lulled into a sense of confidence in a man and fail to search the scriptures to see if what is taught is true to the words of God.

 

Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

Honoring God by seeking his kingdom first, AVBB.

He wasn't changing the scripture, he was 'making sense', by applying it

to the act of 'seeking' which is 'honorable' to our Lord. 

 

Brotherly compassion toward the words of others is an honorable thing also.

 

Violence in 'preaching' to other's, when understanding is not exercised, doesn't show compassion.

 

Now reread the article, and slowly 'hearken', (hear-to-know) and you might see what I mean.

Maybe.

 

If not, maybe you aren't meant to 'see' what I mean.

 

By the way, IMO, the serpent didn't 'change' the words of God.

He questioned them.

It is the unbiblical remarks that people find so honorable that God's word is lost in the gooiness of sophism and philosophy of worldliness.

 

When men honor God's word enough to teach it just as it is and bring out BIBLICAL points that are clearly seen then I will hold my peace. 

 

I will not prefer a man who adds to the word of God even in this.  He said, clearly said, and I quote," as the Lord Jesus Himself has commanded, our first priority in every decision should be to do that which honors the kingdom of Christ and His righteousness"  Christ did not say it once nor command it, find it but it is not there.

 

this is an unbiblical re wording of the word of God (that is what the serpent did).  honor him if you may but it is not found it is an OPINION of what he thinks God word is saying.  quote me the command that says "to do that which honors the kingdom of Christ".

 

I pointed our the subtil change of the words that makes it an error and an opinion.  Accept it our not but you will be held accountable not I.

 

the prOBlem with men is they love the opinions of men over the clear words of God.

And it is the Kingdom of God not the Kingdom of Christ one is to seek.  For some of you would argue they are the same but they are not the same thing.

Jesus IS God, God the Son not God the Father, nor God the Holy Spirit, yet the three are One in Trinity.

 

To argue that that we should seek "the Kingdom of God, not the Kingdom of Christ" is confusion. How many Kingdoms are there? You need to make a clear Scriptural case, rather than accuse a faithful servant like Morris over words to no profit.
