You've seen it. The guy standing on the corner with a sandwich board stating that the end of the world is coming and to repent.
Spiritual NOISE is a little bit like that. Not to say that the Holy Spirit can't work on someone's heart and for the sandwich board to be the clincher to get someone to change their destructive behavior.
Rung #2, NOISE is just a slight step above Spiritual SPAM. It has a lot of the same characteristics.
- Talking instead of listening
- Quoting scriptures using archaic language (can you say Thee and Thou) versus a more relevant translation
- Overly spiritual terms that turn people off (similar to the second point), such as "repent" versus more common terminology such as "change their destructive behavior"
Think before you share. By all means share boldly and in response to nudging or an out and out push by Papa God, but remember to breathe once in a while and to listen for a response.
Getting a response is the next rung on the ladder. Stay tuned.
