“I can testify about them that they have zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.” (Romans 10:2)
Yes, it’s quite possible to be zealous for God but be incorrect about it. He’s referring here to the Jews, who had God’s very law in their hands—and still missed the point. This was such a good warning to me, to beware lest I ever slide into establishing my own ideas and standards of (seemingly Godly) righteousness instead of always falling back on the truth of His Word and His righteousness!
