We do not need to speak a foreign language to have a communication breakdown! Often we carry on conversations with those close to us and the message does not hit the target! We know exactly what we mean; they are equally convinced they understand. The lines get crossed and we have a communication breakdown!
It seems that we currently have a breakdown in interpretation of issues relevant to all. It is not a new problem, just one we need to be on our guard to avoid! " Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter (Isaiah 5:20 NAS)."
We must be very careful that we are not deceiving ourselves or misleading others. We have heard of tragic cases where some one grabs a wrong container, thinking it may be a medication, they take poison instead!
A small child would easily distinguish bitter for sweet; feed baby spinach and they make faces at you. Spoon feed chocolate pudding; and be ready to keep that spoon coming! I want childlike faith that trusts the one feeding me; and I can always be sure the Lord offers me good, not evil!
