"Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things were so" (Acts 17:11).
   Oh, how these words need to be heard and put into practice today. Scripture reminds us that there are many false teachers in the world. Believers need to be discerning and examine every teaching in the light of Scripture. There are some "preachers/teachers" who will claim to have a revelation that is outside the Scripture, a teaching they will elevate to the same authoritative level of Scripture. Such thoughts should be rejected. God's revelation in the Scripture is final.
    One other thought: I welcome anyone to examine the things I preach and teach in the light of Scripture. I would not trust any preacher who would fear such an examination.
    The call is for God's people to be discerning. We are encouraged to "test the spirits" to see if they are from God. We must not mistake charisma for authority. I will stand on no authority except the authority of God's Word. God has given us minds and expects us to use them.
