Thought for the day

Many Christians wish they could live in a bubble . . . a bubble that would protect them from false teaching and allow them to avoid having to develop or use spiritual discernment. Every teaching they encounter would be sterilized, guaranteed to be free of any falsehood. Any person entering the bubble would be perfectly disinfected from false doctrine, bringing in only the truth. Yet this is not the world we live in. We live in a world that is in direct opposition to Christianity. Just as germs are constantly waging war on our bodies, false doctrine is constantly raging against our faith. God has provided us with discernment to enable us to withstand these attacks.

Tim Challies, The Spiritual Discipline of Discernment, p. 36

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely upon your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths." If you are that worried about getting led astray you must not be truly trusting in Jesus. Ge back to basics, get into the Bible, and get to know your Saviour again like you used to. "There is no fear in love, but perfect love csats out all fear." Same goes for me as I say it to you! :^ )
