STIFFNECKEDNESS IN BIBLE SCRIPTURE
Stumblingblock of stiffneckedness in bible scripture looks at the danger of us being stubborn and obstinate. We will look at the danger this poses for our salvation.
In the bible, stiffneckedness is the reason the children of Israel had to go through forty years wandering in the wilderness. Refusing to be transformed through faith, they angered the Most High.
In his mercy, he brought them through chastening to correct their children so they could enter into the land.
For us today, it is no different. In our covenant, we are called to have circumcised hearts. This really means that our consciences will be responsive to good and evil. As a result, we will not be stiffnecked (stubborn, obstinate, self-willed).
So in this episode, we look at the stumblingblock of stiffneckednes and how it gets us into trouble, from which we may never recover.
