New Gospel?

Re:Verse passage – Galatians 1:1-10 (day two) 

only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. Vs. 7b

Do you ever feel like you aren’t qualified to know what is good theology and which is bad? Or maybe you fall into the other extreme that simply accepts whatever you read under the classification of “Christian.” What do we do when we are trapped somewhere in the middle trying to discern what is good, and what is not? This is a question we all need to be asking on a daily basis.

Our source for the gospel is scripture, and our ultimate discernment comes from the Holy Spirit. We know that, and hopefully when we come up against a teaching, good or bad, we will test it against what we already know about scripture. Paul would argue that if you hear something, go to the source. God has also provided teachers, pastors, and other saints in your life that have made the study of scripture a life-long pursuit. Use these resources! There is a billion dollar ‘Christian’ book industry that has the gamut of treasure and trash. As we seek to grow in our knowledge of the Lord, don’t shy from reading and learning, but you must continue to examine these teachings against the unchanging truth of scripture.

  1. Yes! Reminds me of the Bereans who were “examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.”

  2. Hi Aaron, I can’t help but think about the many lost souls that just follow the lost and never check the source! They can remove the visual aspects of GOD off everything but they will never,never,never change all the he is or controls.
