The turning of “the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers” means so much more than what the mainstream church believes. In fact, the whole point of the text is purposely bypassed in favor of the traditional interpretation. Come learn the truth about this overused, yet completely misunderstood passage.
For many centuries, the church has adhered to the belief that there are “true” prophets and “false” prophets. Believe it or not, this is not entirely correct. If you want to gain a deeper understanding of how the Father views, works with and works through the prophets, grab your shovel and let’s dig a little deeper.
Due to centuries of man-made doctrine and church’s propensity for hyper-spiritualization, the definition of a “circumcised heart” has lost much of it’s meaning. Because of this error, our perception is so skewed that there are those who believe they are walking with a circumcised heart when they are actually living according to their own rules and standards.
Even the most “die-hard” christian will believe this fallacy. There are many who read their Bibles every day, go to church on Sunday, never cuss, never drink, stay away from rated “R” movies, fast, pray and pursue Jesus in every way they know how, but according to the Word, their hearts are still not circumcised.
If these people aren’t living holy (“set apart”) lives for YHWH, what hope do the rest of us have?
