It Has To Be Biblical

It has to be biblical. I couldn’t agree more. But this statement from a speaker doesn’t mean you will always get the truth. They could still be espousing erroneous theology.

What you need to watch out for or indications of errant doctrine:

The word doesn’t mean what you think it means. In Greek or Hebrew it actually means this. Or simply it doesn’t mean what you think it means, it means what I’m about to tell you. For example, forever doesn’t mean forever. It means a certain period of time.

These verses don’t apply to you. Context changes the meaning. These verses only applied at that time period or to a certain group of people.

It doesn’t say it specifically, but common sense tells you it is so. An example of this would be the introduction of a distinction between public sin and private sin.

Be careful and be wary. I feel like most people should know the truth when they hear it, but the scripture does tell us hearing cometh by the word of God, so maybe some people are just not blessed to hear.

Unnecessary

I am tired of those that exaggerate and embellish the word of God. And for what reason?

Lately I’ve heard statements on Loveworld television like Jesus is more real to me than you. Or Jesus is more real to me than my own skin. These people haven’t looked up the definition of real. Something is either real or it isn’t. I don’t think this exaggeration of the reality of God helps anyone to find Christ.

He is real, but he may or may not appear to you in a vision or in a dream. Many come to faith through belief. Romans 10:17 KJV says So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. So we see that understanding (of faith) is granted by God. May we be so blessed.

Another thing I’d heard recently on Sid Roth was a man saying Jesus had appeared to him and told him to defend Jesus and the Father – to say that they had nothing to do with Covid-19. It may or may not have been purposely started by God, but it was allowed with the knowledge of God. God doesn’t need to be defended by a human being that doesn’t understand the power of God. If God wanted to stop Covid-19 he certainly could have. He is all powerful.
