There are well known preachers, teachers and Christian authors who advocate the use of our imagination for the advancement of our Christian experience.
They praise the poetry and fiction of those who speak of God and His ways, not according to His revealed Word, but according to the imaginations of their own hearts:
This is false and deadly dangerous:
The consistent record of Scripture is that the imagination of man's heart is only evil continually: Gen 8v21, Deut 29v19, Jer 23v17, Lk 1v51, Rom 1v21, 2 Cor 10v5 and many others.
By the Word of God in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, God reveals Himself to man.
The pinnacle of this revelation is in Jesus Christ through whom the way of truth is known:
It is by revelation not imagination!!
