Every church and ministry has one; but it may not be what it seems to be. We’re talking about “Statements of Faith” or “What We Believe” professions for Christian churches and organizations.
Virtually every Christian church or ministry will state “We believe the Word of God is eternal truth”…yet some of these organizations approve of homosexuality, claim everyone will go to heaven, and other outrageous “beliefs” that clearly contradict the Word of God. How we read the Bible, and our world view, are important factors in discerning truth from clever deception. Satan himself misused scripture to tempt Jesus Christ, and Jesus rebuked him by accurately quoting the scriptures.
We need to know the Bible before we can respond with ‘it is written.’
Author and Pastor Gary Gilley joined us on air this morning to discuss Systematic Theology–learning and understanding the Bible in complete context. We covered several false and dangerous movements using “partial scripture” to lead many astray.
Some Scriptures discussed (scroll over to read): 2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Corinthians 2:14-15, 2 Timothy 2:15, 1 Peter 3:15, James 5:16, Matthew 5:3, Matthew 5:17-18, 1 Timothy 2:5
