If It Sounds Fine ~ December 14

If It Sounds Fine

We might need to question it

In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. Colossians 2:3-4

“Fine-sounding arguments” have been around for quite some time, it seems. The big difference between the fine-sounding arguments of today and those of the past is today’s are heard instantly, by almost everyone. An opinion cannot be uttered without being instantly broadcast to the masses via radio, television, and the Internet, and just as instantly, arguments for and against said opinion are available to all.

There’s something missing in the “news” and information we receive so instantaneously these days: wisdom and knowledge. Too much of this instant information we are bombarded with is simply one person’s opinion. With regard to religion, opinions are usually based on two things; translation and interpretation.

We must seek God on a one-on-one basis, allowing Him, though His word, to impart to us His wisdom and knowledge. It is through His revelation knowledge we will come to an understanding as to what His role in our life will be. We should welcome and seek sound doctrine, while remaining alert for “fine-sounding” arguments. Satan will use many methods and mediums in his effort to confuse and discourage us.

Do not be deceived.

    Someone posted a version of Pennies From Heaven on a facebook page this week as an unknown author. I posted that you were the original author of Pennies from Heaven and directed them to you website. Give credit where credit is due so to speak. Hope you are ready to celebrate a Merry Christmas and the New Year is filled with many blessings.

    • Thank you, Kathy! That happens quite often, and I appreciate when someone points it out to me or the person who posted it. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
