What Adoption and Snakes Have in Common | Adoption Voices Magazine

Notes from a Pentecostal pastor and adoptee on the Biblical call to adoption. Now this is harsh, strongly worded and full of verse/chapter cites.

We didn’t write the Bible, and we don’t get to twist it to suit our own needs.
We can believe something in our heart but unless it agrees with the Word, it’s not truth.
Truth is what’s written in the pages of scripture, not what’s written upon our hearts even when we are convinced that God spoke to us personally and told us this or that.

Yes, I know the spirit of the law is just as important as the letter of the law.
But in this case, the spirit doesn’t match up with the letter because the letter is absent.
Adoption in the way it happens in our world today is not specifically found in the Bible.

 Only spiritual adoption is found in scripture.

Well, I can’t argue with that. Because Scripture isn’t my territory. But worth thinking about.
