BETTER THAN FEELINGS
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Aleister Crowley was an early twentieth century British artist, novelist, and occultist. He founded a religion he called Thelema and saw himself as a prophet who would guide humanity ito an age of self-realization. The Beatles were fans--Crowley was one of those appearing on the cover of the famous Sgt. Pepper's album cover. Supposedly, the guiding role of his religion was,"Do what thou wilt., shall be the whole of the Law" Many people trace one of the guiding maxims of the 1960's,"if it feels good, do it"--back to Crowley.
"The sixties" took that principle to heart and many today still do. How often do we hear people explain a decision by saying, "It just felt right"? But is feeling good enough of a guiding principle for life? Think about your your own feelings,. Today you feel good and tomorrow you don't. The decision you make today, you wouldn't make tomorrow. We need something more permanent, consistent, and dependent as a guiding principle for life. The psalmist trusted in God's guidance and in God's Word.
Don't get caught up in the religion of "anything goes". Establish your life on the guiding principles of God and His Word. Men give advice, God gives guidance.
