ARE YOU A BRANCH OR ROOTS?
Doctrines become roots in our lives. They provide us with a strong anchor.
People, churches, organization can drift from the truth. One man made a remark to a friend that a Christian college was now teaching all the branches of learning.
His young friend responded, "Yes, it has all the branches and none of the roots.
It is possible to teach and preach things that are only branches of the tree - non essential but what people like to hear. It is imperative to preach and teach on subjects that are roots and anchors of the Apostolic message.
