As Christians, we are to evaluate everything we hear, especially consider that which makes “truth claims” into our lives. Why? We are commanded to in 1 John 4:1 – and for a very significant reason.
Doctrine & Life
God’s Word Believed and Applied
God has standards for how He is to be honored, approached, and obeyed! Our decisions and actions must be based upon God’s standard and not our own. God’s Holy name is at stake.
Actual community for Christians is always based in the truth of the new birth and a reconciled relationship to God. The Bible calls it fellowship.
What are your allegiances? Christ commanded complete devotion to Himself. Scripture says loyalty to Jesus is death to friendship with this world.
Can Christians have godly confidence? Absolutely! Our individual discernment plays a huge role in our walk with God and our future judgment by Christ.
