Humans in general seemed to be in a big hurry to get their nickers in a twist so we can exhibit some kind of, "that ain't right!" attitude.

Then couple that with the "rightness" one feels when they become saved and whammo major bunch!

Now here is a problem with all that, that we seldom consider. I have to kinda stop for a minute to make sure I am wording this right...

Our screening process is what is mostly motivating this whole deal, the little discerner that we all (humans) use to help us make descisions. It tells what is off center, what is not quite right so it (whatever it is) can be disqualified.

We (all... believers, non-believers) have a tendency to emotionally swell to particular rights or wrongs and get on board with them, or to renounce them respectively.

Here, is where we get back to the afore mentioned problem. Humans have this "no" machine that works for us, and we tend to trust it, too much in some areas and not enough in others.

Now remember this, the "no" machine is in all humans.

God put it in our persons, it is part of our free choice apparatus. And it works as a disqualifying, discerning filter, that is not as under our control as it should be. Or to put it more correctly under the Spirits control.

One of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control (in KJV-temperance) and as a fruit of the Spirit we (the believer), need to recognize the true ownership of it even though it is called, "self" control.

This will help the believer mortify (kill) the deeds of the flesh that have a built in bent to disqualify even Godly things.

And under the flesh's empowerment, this can mean, the preacher becomes disqualified because of a disqualifying statement or maybe the statement is rejected, because of the preacher having been disqualified before.

Or... God... might be, because our flesh does not agree with Him.

Romans 8:7 NKJV
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor ideed can be.

(the carnal mind is the mind of the flesh)

Yes, getting our "no" machine "nickers" in a twist, can equate to unbelief. It is at work and empowered by the flesh and satan, in the un-believer, but also to a lesser degree in the believer.

The major problem is the flesh empowered, Self-righteous un-belief, found in the believer... that is a Major Bunch!
