Hard to Hear (2)
—Sometimes God’s Truth Hurts
Another page of points taught in the Bible that many folk find hard to hear. This page is about people’s attitude toward the Bible.
For Our Learning
The Old Testament was not written as law for us to obey. It was written for our learning to direct us to Christ Jesus. His law is sufficient for us.
Don't Add to Scriptures
People like to mix their own doctrines with God's word. They may even claim that God speaks to them. But Paul tells us that the Scriptures of the prophets and the apostles are fully sufficient and therefore nobody should add anything to them.
False teaching is often the result of adding to the Scriptures or taking something away. However, false teaching can also come from wrongly dividing and wrongly applying the Scriptures. For example, making people today obey laws that were meant for people of the past.
