Doorway to deception is doubting God’s Word
Hath God surely said?
Once the door is opened, lies can be injected.
(+) Addition – Some add to the Word of God things that are not in there, or say you can only unlock the meaning of scripture by interpreting it through the “lens” of another book (ie: Book of Mormon, Scientology, Koran, etc)
(-) Subtraction – Some subtract from the Word of God, may cause doubt that it is really something Jesus said, or deny the either deity of Jesus or the humanity of Jesus.
(X) Multiplication – Some multiply or magnify one aspect of the scripture at the expense of others, must take the Whole Counsel of God because scripture balances scripture. (ie: Word of Faith, Calvinism, etc)
(/) Division – Some say they are the only ones with the truth and everyone else is wrong. Scripture is of no private interpretation. It is not some man that we should go to for truth, but instead we go to Scripture trust the Holy Spirit to open the scripture to us.
We do not look to men, traditions of men, doctrines of demons, or worldly religions. Men will always fail, but God never fails.
We look to Jesus and His Word as revealed in the scripture. We must each study to show ourselves approved and search the scriptures daily to know what things are true.
