So many follow a personality.  We've seen it in politics for ever, people vomiting for a smooth talking shyster.  People fall for false religions, and gen follow the dead!  People flock to mega churches because others go there, irrespective of doctrine and Truth.

Peter told the leaders of Israel who were trying to shut him up, "Some time ago Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men joined him.  He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing.  After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and drew away people after him.  He too perished, and all his followers were scattered.

Be careful!  Don't follow a personality.  Men will die and what will you be left with?  Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.  Ask Him!  He will answer!  Life is too hard, too short, and too costly to get it wrong.  I enjoy certain peachers, but they are not my Savior.  I take what I can from them, always remembering they are mere men.  God uses people to spread His Word,  but I am not to life them up and worship them.  Respect them, yes.  Appreciate them, yes.  Idolize them, no.

Don't go where the rest of the lost sheep go.  Go where the Holy Spirit tells you to go.  He will never steer you wrong.  

Go read Galations Chapter 1.  Believers who had begun to follow personalities and were led away fromt he Turth of the Gospel.  Don't let this be you!
