Christian singer Danny Gokey warned Christians about the most dangerous thing that can happen to a believer right now.
In a recent Instagram post, Danny warned his viewers about the dangers of drifting away from Biblical truths and being drifted to culture’s counterfeit lies. He even mentioned that the drift can happen in a subtle way. Most of us don’t even realize that we are being drifted away.
“I believe the most dangerous thing that can happen to a believer is very subtle, and sometimes you don’t even catch it,” Danny said. “What am I talking about? ‘The drift.’”
The GMA Dove Award winner then explained what he is trying to say by giving an analogy of a drifting boat.
“Imagine you’re on a boat, you’re heading towards a specific direction, and you had a motor on it, but you decide to turn that motor off, you decided to relax,” he said. “And unknowingly, the ocean or the culture … took you in a whole different direction.”
This is what some Christians fall into. If we let our culture or what is around us define our morals and values, it will lead us farther away from the Word of God. That is a very dangerous thing to happen to a believer.
“That’s what’s dangerous to the believer,” Danny said. “If we don’t hang on to the Word of God, if we let the culture define what our values are — what our morals are — we’ll pretty soon find out that we have a form of godliness, but we denied the power thereof.”
Be watchful because that dangerous thing can pull us away from what God wants for us and lead us back into our sinful selves.
“Jesus didn’t die on the cross so we can go back into our sin pattern,” he said.
