Blind Leading the Blind

I came across this article today, the headline made me laugh after I pictured it in my mind so I had to read it.  Blind man keeps is seeing eye dog after it loses it’s sight

Yes, he got another dog to lead him and his first dog around.  Of course the saying, the blind leading the blind came to mind.  I had come across this phrase in my Bible reading a while back and I instantly went back to that verse out of Matthew:

Matthew 15:14

14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Jesus was speaking of the scribes and the Pharisees who were leading the people astray.  I was talking to a member of our church tonight about some of their family members who are being taught false doctrine.  Since the beginning people have been taught or led into wrong doctrine.  What is wrong doctrine?  I live by a Biblical Worldview, so wrong doctrine is anything contrary to God’s word, the Bible.

If I am following someone who is living based on something other than the Bible I am living Matthew 15:14.  I am in the same situation as the blind man with the blind guide dog.  The only difference is clear vision is available to me.

All that to say, get in your Bible, follow Jesus, see where He is leading!
