Glorifying Low Self-esteem

As we should not condemn each other for the festivals and celebrations we enjoy as reflections of our beliefs, so we also should beware of celebrations that are contrary to the Word of God. For instance, many people celebrate angels. They base decisions on visions they have seen of angels and want you to obey their directions based on visions.

These people are those who talk a lot about humiliating yourself and seeking signs and wonders. They promote low self-esteem as a godly quality yet have a puffed up view of their importance to the body of Christ. They condemn others who find reasons to celebrate and forget that we are all part of the same body, even if we have differing views.

We need to remember when we disagree with each other’s choices, that we are not masters but servants. There is only one master, God (Colossians 2:16-19).
