Of course the scriptures say: (1Jn 2:27) But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Many look to this one scripture today and claim that they don’t listen to men, they only listen to God. They very well may spend hours listening to a number of men, of which they will say, “I eat the meat and spit out the bones”. I always am puzzled and greatly amazed at a people who believe they are being taught by the Holy Spirit, they believe that no man need teach them, and yet they will admit to listening to men preach who preach error, all the while these people claim that they handle error by spiting out the bones.
So let me get this straight, you listen to error from men you respect as brothers, you even can find no one who agrees with you on everything, and in most cases you run into people regularly who claim to personally hear from God, with whom you agree very little, and yet you don’t see any problem with your faith in applying 1John 2:27 to your life?
