Pamphlet #1077

"Do not take man's word as being God's Word."

Do not take man's word as being God's Word;
whether you hear it from me or you hear it in church.

When studying the Bible, in depth, you will often be confronted with a choice,
"Am I to believe what I just read in God's Word,
or should I discard it and continue to believe that which I grew up believing?"

The choice is yours.

The apostle Paul gave us instruction as to how to handle "listening to man":

1 Thes. 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
If you can document from God's Word that which you believe,
then you do well, even if I, or your pastor, disagree.

For if your attitude and mine is to believe our Father's Word,
regardless of man's traditions,
then we will eventually, through growth, harmonize in unity of thought.

If you can't document it,
you may be harboring a tradition,
which could well be a lie,
disguised as truth.

Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Again, the choice is simple,
continue to be conformed to traditions,
or PROVE that which is good and acceptable.
