blue bullet  How can an individual tell if the doctrine they believe and live by is true?


blue bullet  It is a sad fact of life that false prophets do exist in an effort by Satan to distort and mislead people away from God's Word.  "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" (I Timothy 4:1).  "Evil men shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived" (II Timothy 3:13).

Today millions of people are being deceived because Satan has infiltrated the Church and many of its ministries.  The only way to make sure you are following the correct doctrine is to search God's Word for yourself.  The Bible teaches us to "meditate therein day and night" (Joshua 1:8) so we will  not be easily mislead and will therefore be found pleasing unto God.

You can evaluate your doctrine to determine its validity by determining if it harmonizes with Scripture.  As such, the doctrine must be compatible with Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.  Also, good doctrine will bear good fruit.  "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them" (Matthew 7:20).  There is no doctrine given by the Holy Spirit that results in lending credence to sin and unbelief.

What you believe becomes the foundation of all your actions and choices in this life and will ultimately determine where you will spend eternity.  "And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye meet, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.  For he that hath, to him shall be given: and to him that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath" (Mark 4:24-25).

There is not a person that has ever existed who at some point in their life believed something contrary to God's Word.  However, after the truth is revealed we are obligated as the Children of God to set aside our personal pride and beliefs and acknowledge God's eternal truth.
