ARE YOU CAREFUL ABOUT WHO’S PREACHING AND TEACHING YOU LISTEN TO OR READ?

March 24

There are people out there that want to draw us away from God and lure us into other things that ultimately will cause our downfall.  In the Old Testament and today this is one of the worst things a person can do is lead another away from God. We need to be very careful of who and what we listen to.  Just because it is on the internet, they are a pastor, or the person is on TV or the radio does not mean they are a sound biblical teacher.  Many radio and TV stations do not care what someone teaches as long as they are getting paid and anyone can put anything they want to on the internet and portray themselves a good teacher. We are to separate and call out those who are false teachers. We need to make sure we stay away from them and others do too. Let us be diligent in making sure those we listen to or read their materials are really sound in the faith, so that we will be too.

“If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 “and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’ -which you have not known-‘and let us serve them,’ 3 “you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the LORD your God is testing you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 “You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him. (Deuteronomy 13:1-4)
