99% Truth, 1% Lie…Read your Bible!

beware-false-prophets

Lately, I have been deceived by numerous online revelations that are supposedly God’s Word. If like myself, you love to learn about how people have had experiences with God, and shared their testimony online, I have a piece of advice for you today: check everything you read against the Word of God!

This isn’t an article where I’m going to try and name and shame every author of ebooks I have looked at or blog post I have read. But lately, I have been reading supposedly-Christian literature where every-so-often, I’ve thought “Hmm, wait a minute…this doesn’t line-up with the Bible”. I’ve come to learn that there are many e-books and articles out there that present a 99% TRUTH, SOLELY TO INTRODUCE A 1% LIE.

I remember what the Word of the LORD says:

Matthew 7:15 | Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

I have spent hours this week researching into the various false prophets and the teachers that exist in this day-and-age. I was astounded to read of how many there are! I’m not going to mention them in name, as I’m not in a position to debate about them, as I have only a little knowledge of what I have read. This would be foolish of me. However, I urge you that if you have doubts about anything you have read that supposed to “be Christian”—do your research!

Google the Author, Pastor or Blogger’s name and find out what they say against what the bible says. I assure you, you’ll find some damning results. I think that many of us are always hungry to hear some new details about God, new details of Heaven and hell, new details of doctrine. Don’t be fooled like me—I’ve been guilty of this. Seek the Word of God instead:

2 Peter 1:20 | Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

The crux of what I am trying to explain is this: There are MANY false prophets out there. If something sounds like it doesn’t agree with scripture—check it out. There are no new revelations in the New Covenant and no private interpretations. Seek the Word of God, not men.

Have you been deceived before? Have you read some “Christian book” that blatantly doesn’t line-up with scripture? I’d like to hear your thoughts on the matter…

    This has been going on since the beginning. As Solomon said, “…there’s nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

    The best thing to do with the Word of God is to stick with the Word of God. Searching the Web for meaning to God’s Word is like trying to understand the universe by reading Cosmopolitan.

    In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Paul says, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

    If you’re searching the internet for this (or other books, manuals, pamphlets, etc.) then you will never be complete. The only true source for Godly wisdom is from God Himself.

    Very true – I’m not ordained but I occasionally get to preach at my church. I usually start with Acts 17:11b – “[The Jews at Thessalonica] searched the Scriptures day after day to check up on Paul and Silas, to see if they were really teaching the truth” and remind the congregation that they shouldn’t just listen to me (or an ordained pastor) but check us against God’s word.

    @Doug → Thanks for your contribution and encouragement to us all.

    @Chris → Oh yes, totally agree with this. I had a problem with the doctrine of a preacher just the other week. The important thing is to discuss such matters with one another to bring about unity; not division in most circumstances. Thanks for your comment 🙂
