WHERE ARE YOUR PRIORITIES, PERSON OF GOD?

Mat  15:9
But in  vain  they do  worship me, teaching  for  doctrines the commandments of men. 

Does it make sense, that one person could have been previously convicted of murder, or rape, repent, come to Christ, become a born again believer and Pastor, while another dedicated member is not able to serve in an official capacity (i.e Deacon, Evangelist, Pastor, etc.) because they had a baby 40 years ago out of wedlock, (ALSO before they came to know the Lord) or was previously married? How does this make spiritual sense?? How many of us have seen or experienced this? A person's calling from God is so obvious, but we allow un-bibIical man made rules and stupid stipulations to disqualify someone from ministry!
Is it truly the Jesus Christ that has made Himself known through scripture that is being worshiped and honored  when we use church doctrine to measure a persons worth and calling? 
These are not one time mistakes but rather the rules for the purposeful disqualification of people from ministry.

We will fight, HARD, to maintain and uphold Church doctrine at any and all cost, EVEN at the cost of the growth and health of the church, AS WELL as the spiritual growth and maturity of the INDIVIDUAL people of God! Who or what is honored when this is how much of church is done?
That's the messed up news, now here's the good news: God can and will still use you if you yeild yourself. HE is the One that anoints, calls and qualifies and supplies!
WHERE ARE YOUR PRIORITIES?
Will you honor God or man? Will we stand up for  what's right in the sight of God according to His word, or for the dictates of man and church/denominational teachings and doctrine?

Gal 1:10
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should [can] not be the servant of Christ.

In these last days, we need to walk as closly with God and as closly in line with scripture as we can! 
May you continue to seek the spiritual discernment that can only come from His Holy Spirit
