There's an epidemic--not just in the message, though certainly there too.
As Christians, we are called to study scripture for ourselves--to commit ourselves to knowing everything that we can about the Word of God. Unfortunately, instead of diligently studying and coming to a better understanding of the Word, many follow the commandments of men, adopt the doctrines of men, and and reverence the opinions of men.
Don't be a lazy Christian. Pick up your Bible. Study it. Read up on the history. Understand the context. Don't rely on anyone else to mediate between you and the Lord--come to Him yourself, and allow Him to speak, teach, and reveal to you directly.
We should absolutely consider the opinions and conclusions of other Christians--but we should never attempt to make excuses for our own sloth.https://www.facebook.com/SeekYeTheTruth/photos/a.281312795303458.48697.214739791960759/640231696078231/?type=1
