Judge by the Word of God

Romans 16:17-18

I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put snares alongside the teaching in which you have been trained—keep away from them.  For men like these are not serving our Lord the Messiah but their own belly; by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the innocent.

 

Until Yeshua returns we will always have people who seek to enrich themselves over serving the Lord.  The only way for the body of believers to protect themselves is to be like the good people of Berea, who on hearing the Word preached by Sha’ul didn’t just accept what he said but studied the Word themselves and made sure that all Sha’ul taught was aligned to scripture.  It is when we as believers write the scripture on our hearts that we can stand against false doctrine designed to enrich individuals.  Lord let great teachers come into my life that challenge me to search Your Word as the deer pants for water.  I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.

One thought on “Judge by the Word of God

  1. And Yeshua did not say judge not. Yeshua said in John 7:24:
    24 “Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.”
    For example, with the Bible.
