Today's reading: 1 John 4:1-6

I had the privilege of working with and taking in the teaching of Dr. Woodrow Kroll for almost ten years during my tenure at Back to the Bible. One of the things he would regularly tell his radio listeners was that we shouldn't simply accept what he or any other teacher was saying. Rather, we should be verifying and comparing the content of any teaching we receive with the Bible. He was adamant about urging and encouraging everyone to be in God's Word so that we could know God's truth for ourselves.

John delivers a similar message in 1 John 4:1-6 as he charges his readers to "test the spirits to see whether they are from God" (vs. 1) because there are many false teachers in the world.

Do you check the spiritual content of messages you hear, read or see with the Bible? Why is this important? What does this passage convey about the need for us to regularly be taking in God's Word? Tami

Bereans: Acts17:11 "Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so."

I Thessalonians 5:19,21 (19) Do not extinguish the Spirit. 20Do not treat prophecies with contempt, (21) but test all things. Hold fast to what is good.…

Tami, I agree we need to be in the Word reading it to see what is truth and when we are exposed to false teaching we will be able to spot it more readily!!

We must not forget yesterday's lesson to use love when you are dealing with someone who is in a cult,false teaching to encourage them to search the Scriptures.

This has been a great study, thanks, Tami!
