Jude 4 (NET)For certain men have secretly slipped in among you- men who long ago were marked out for the condemnation I am about to describe - ungodly men who have turned the grace of our God into a license for evil and who deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Emeka and Lucky had a discussion concerning doctrines now becoming popular in the body of Christ. Lucky tried to use scriptures to establish his points, but could not find one Bible verse directly supporting them. He could only draw subjective inferences and stretch Bible teachings to ridiculous conclusions. All Emeka did was to simply present some New Testament verses that clearly shattered Lucky’s whole argument. These verses were so clear and direct that unlike Lucky, Emeka didn’t need to do much explaining.

We see in today's Bible text that propagators of perverted doctrines slipped in unnoticed. I have observed that false doctrines also slip in unnoticed. Such doctrines begin from a common premise of truth, but end up with inferences that disagree with the teachings of Christ, thereby producing fruits not consistent with the kingdom life. Sometimes, the problem is not in what is said; it is what is left unsaid.

How to know if your doctrine is wrong is by testing it with the written word. If what you believe makes the Bible contradict itself, your position is not accurate. If in order for you to prove your doctrinal position, you have to resort to rigorous logical dynamics; re-translate root words to more obscure meanings; ignore entire portions of the New Testament, and subjectively explain away two or more New Testament verses that directly contradict your position, your doctrine is one of error.

Go into today knowing that all scripture is inspired by the same Spirit (2 Tim 3:16). Wholesome spiritual understanding will bring it all together, not fragment it.
Ask the Lord to teach you His Word.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
