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.
They Have Not Listened
Everyone has a relationship with God. We are either in friendship with him, or in rebellion against him. Your relationship with God depends on whether you listen to His Word or refuse to hear it. Those who listen become more righteous. Those who don't get more and more sinful (Jeremiah 7:26).
A Way that Seems Right
People travel through life, and direct their steps, by their own assumptions and feelings. The wise, however, walk the way taught by God in his word: the way that leads to life (Proverbs 14:12).
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.
Though We or an Angel...
A curse is a bad thing. Nobody wants one. Well then, we had all better test the gospel we preach with the gospel Paul preached. Is there an exact match? Or is there a difference?
Do you know how the Bible is put together, how its various documents are grouped, and where each book fits into the history of God’s dealings with human beings? We have a chart that shows you. Tap the title above, next to the arrow, to go to that lesson with a link back to this page.
