KNOW the WORD!


There has been a lot said lately about preachers misleading Christians with false doctrine.  These preachers are more dangerous than the obvious nutcases out there who are really way out!  Why?  Because we sit in their churches not even considering that they would say something contrary to the bible!

That  is why it is imperative to KNOW THE WORD!


If we know the word of God...
  If something is preached that is not correct, not in the bible, we can know that it is not the truth.

If we know the word of God...
  We will not be mislead into believing an untruth or accepting an untruth, or even worse, repeating that untruth and influencing another child of God into falseness.

If we know the word of God...
  We will not be led into fear because of 'predictions' made by 'spiritual people' who claim to know the 'truth'.

For example, the claim that was made that the world was going to end on a certain date at a certain time (eg, this past weekend).  We, Christians, know that the word says in Matt 24 v 36:  But of that day and hour no one knows, no, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

The word also says in Deut 4 v 2(a):  You shall not add to the word which I command you, not take anything from it.

The word also says in 1 John 4 v 1:  Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.


1 Peter 5 v 8 says:  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

At bible school during exams, some of the questions were multiple choice and many of the answers seemed MOSTLY right.  But the lecturer advised us that if the statements were not 'completely' correct, then they were not the answer!  It must be the complete truth!
The same goes for what is being preached to you or told to you by whoever you may be listening to.

If it is not the whole truth as proclaimed in God's word - then it is not the truth!

The world, TV, media is conditioning us to accept many things we should not be accepting thus making it easier to be mislead.

My encouragement to you is to study the word of God, absorb it, so you won't be mislead.  If ever you are in doubt about something someone says, measure it against His Word, the bible.  The Word of God is your protection.

His Word - our protection!


His Word should be your only truth source!

God bless

  5. Yes! Your word of truth is right on. Most Christians are afraid to share this truth. I love the new look for your blog! It is real. You and I have the same goals in blogging, sharing the truth of God's word. Simple and clear.
