l. Many Christians have been taught that if one has a Christ-centered marriage, you will have a better marital relationship, when in reality about 40% of even Christian marriages end in divorce.
2. Wrong biblical teaching concerning submission and headship in marriage has led, in some cases, to spousal abuse on one extreme, and passivity on the other.
3. Many Christian leaders teach that God's will for one's life has to be discovered, when in fact, the Bible already clearly states God's will for all believers.
4. Many Christians quote Romans 8:28, "All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose," in times of adversity, to mean that circumstances will get better, when in fact, this verse has nothing to do with circumstances getting better, because the context clearly refers to developing Godly character. This kind of taking verses out of context leads to a questioning of one's salvation and love for God. God can and does make good out of bad, but this is not the verse to use to support that teaching.
This incorrect thinking must be broken if one is to live the life of freedom and liberation that God intends for Christians to live. If these examples have generated food for thought, and possibly even some controversy, I welcome your comments.
