Luke 17:1-2

Luk 17:1 Also, he said to his disciples, “Stumbling blocks are not out of the question, but tragedy will happen to the one through whom they come!
Luk 17:2 It would be better for him to have a millstone tied around his neck and be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.

millstones and movements

A few months ago, Penny and I were in Auckland, and visited the Maritime Museum. One of the items on display was a huge millstone. It was about my height, and I thought about this passage when I saw it. Jesus is warning people of the future consequences of coming up with some “new” theology. When someone’s “great idea” catches on, it can lead an entire generation, or an entire multi-generational movement into sin. God holds the innovative responsible for their innovations. If it is new, it is not true. Don’t spread it.

LORD, give us the wisdom to lead people along straight paths.
