Follow your heart?

Here's a short blog for y'all.

I have seen the argument among Christians to “follow your heart” when you are unsure of what to do. This advice is unbiblical, and bound to lead you into trouble.

Jeremiah 17:9 tells us “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Now, why would you want to follow an organ that is deceitful and wicked? That seems a silly thing to do.

When unsure of what you should do, consult first the Bible and pray to God about it. Quite often when one approaches the Bible without bias one will find answers. After consulting the Bible and praying, one could consult Godly friends/acquaintances and ask their opinion on the matter (key word: opinion. Always be sure to check back with the Bible to see if the advice they gave you matches up with the word of God).

So, when unsure: read bible, pray, consult Godly friends, consult bible again. At no point should you “follow your heart.”

The End. :)


  1. So the saying should be amended to "follow God's heart..." ♥ Good reminder....

  2. "Follow God's heart"... I'm gonna have to use that. Nice.
