The word corrupt can also mean to rot. Below is a rather gross picture of a rotten apple however imagine that is what happens to your brain if you allow it to be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Simplicity in Christ

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Cor 11:3)

Once again simplicity doesn’t seem to be a word one would include when talking about being wise. Yet Paul seems to be almost pleading with us when he says he is worried that our minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Sadly today when reading studies over various things God has stated in the Bible (baptism is just one of many examples) mankind has become very good at quibbling with God.

We have become like lawyers pouring over every word that is written and seem to strive to come up with every reason possible not to do something God has said.

Who cares where something fits into your scheme of things if God says to do something – just do it. It must be good for us if he asks us to do it.

I hate the phrase “optional extra” – again it is like listening to a bunch of lawyers. Such and such is not necessary for salvation they say – so it is an optional extra – arghhh!

Nothing is an optional extra in the word of God – he wants to bless us with all the fullness of God. How silly to say to God: Oh – I read in sub section paragraph 4 – that what you want me to do in paragraph 7 has no bearing on my salvation and therefore I’m going to totally disobey what you said in paragraph 7 because according to my lawyer brain you will have to save me anyway.

Why would you argue with God? If he says it – just do it. Don’t be robbed from the simplicity that is in Christ.
