Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on August 30, 2016

Breakfast of ChampionsThere’s nothing like reading the Word of God for yourself. Why? Because there are so many False Teachers out there proclaiming God has spoken to them and He has a word for them. But little does anyone observe, that individual is leading people into utter deception and away from God. That is their primary intent! First of all, if we’re reading God’s Word we know that 2 Peter 2:1 tells us about false prophets and teachers with secret agendas that are designed to turn us away from the truth. If we are not engaged in reading the Word of God for ourselves, we will be subjected to any and all “sounds good” doctrines as long as it states God said it or Jesus says so. So how do we tell the difference between truth and lies? Get into the Word of God yourselves! Just don’t settle with everything you hear from the Bible as true without confirming what you’ve heard by reading it yourself. Take you Bible with you to church and when the pastor starts talking about scripture, go to that portion of the Word and validate that passage as he reads it. We need to challenge the individual on his or her stance if we have any doubt or suspicion that what they are saying has been diluted or paraphrased for whatever reason. Let’s stop settling for listening to others saying “Okay, God said for you to . . . . ” and they don’t have His Word to show a foundation of truth to back it up! Read you Word every chance you get to know the truth. When we know the truth, then that’s when the TRUTH sets us free!

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.”  –  2 PETER  2:1
