WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
The Bible says we all need to look and learn for ourselves. We are not to let any man tell us what to believe, but rather believe and follow only what we read in the scriptures. Our obligation is to make sure what we practice matches up with the Bible. Our opinions do not matter. If we say we believe the Bible, then our "school of thought" must be to ask "What does the Bible say?" II Timothy 2:15 "Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." I Thessalonians 5:21-22 "Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil." I John 4:1 "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world." Luke 6:46 "But why do you call Me, "Lord, Lord" and do not the things which I say." Jesus said, "ALL AUTHORITY has been given to Me in heaven and on earth," and also "observe ALL that I have commanded you." Matthew 28:18-20 You are encouraged to look for yourself to see that this is not just some opinion, but rather what the Bible says.
