I believe what I read in the Word of God

I want to start off by giving honor where honor is due. Thank you Abba Father for keeping your hand upon me and my life. Thank you Jesus for being my Lord and Savior and for laying down your life so that I could have eternal life. Thank you Holy Spirit for guidance, discipline, comfort, and for being so much more than just a tongue talker. 

I believe what I read in the Word of God

Everyone that knows me knows that I was brought up in a Pentecostal church. I truly believe that I had some of the best Sunday school teachers that ever taught including my mother and grandfather. I truly believe that I've heard some of the best sermons that have ever been preached anywhere in the world. Although I wasn't a born again Christian growing up I had an above average understanding of the scriptures because of some wonderfully amazing Christians that took their time to teach me. Looking back at it now I consider myself fortunate that I was brought up this way and I wouldn't change it for anything.
Last weekend I was studying a subject that I thought I had a pretty good grasp on but I still had some questions about because it just didn't seem to line up right with my own experiences. As I was researching and reading my Bible I found out that what I was taught growing up and thought was right my whole life actually wasn't. This wasn't the first time this has happened but this one really blew me away. Honestly I had to just let it settle in my mind and spirit for a little while. I know that nobody intentionally mislead me and everyone really thought they were teaching me what was right.
This just reinforced to me the importance of reading the Bible for ourselves and not being afraid to adjust our own beliefs according to what is actually said in the Word of God. I always tell people "I don't believe exactly how my grandpa believed. I don't believe exactly how my parents believe. I don't believe exactly how my siblings believe. I don't believe exactly how my pastor believes. I believe what I read in the Word of God." We can't just take other people's word for what The Bible says we need to read it, research it, and study things out for ourselves.
