Disease Of Naaman

David McPherson

Most Bible students are familiar with Naaman. He was the man who upon being told how to cleanse his leprosy became "wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper" (2 Kings 5:11).

Many folks today are suffering with the disease of Naaman. No, not his leprosy, but rather his "behold, I thought" malady.

I recently heard of a "Christian Church Elder" conducting a funeral service on Saturday morning and stating that the daughter of the deceased one asked that they observe the Lordís Supper. Before serving it, the man said, "my initial reaction was, Iíve never heard of that before - but then I thought, why not?"

Why not?! How about the fact thereís no Bible authority for such. In the Bible, the church assembled to "break bread (partake of the Lordís Supper) upon the first day of the week" (Acts 20:7).

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord" (Isa. 55:8). Donít let the "behold, I thought" epidemic get you.
