The Bible says “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2).
Only the pure word of God transforms the mind. Strive to keep your doctrine as pure as possible. If you are of the ‘eat the meat and spit out the bones’ type, please know that for every ‘bone’ you ingest you make your forward walk move backward. Bones are not pure. They do not help your mind transform. They pollute your soul.
Think of it this way.
If you were a gas thief, and sucked up some gas to start the siphoning process, once the gas comes up the tube and the flow has begun, you spit out the gas from your mouth, of course. But over time, if you do that enough, your teeth fall out. Your mouth tissue degrades. If you miscalculate and get even a tiny bit into your lungs, even once, you could aspirate, choke, or even die. Gas is a poison, we are not supposed to ingest it.
With God’s words, it’s even MORE important to avoid taking in the poison. There is no safe way to ‘eat the meat and spit out the bones’. NONE.
There is nothing you can learn from a false teacher. Their aim is to destroy you, make merchandise of you, and to hand you to satan. They speak lies. Avoid all false teachers and stick with the true ones. You will be much better off.
Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. (1 Corinthians 5:7).
A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. (Galatians 5:9).
Do not consider ingesting what the Lord considers a spoil.
