Discerning Truth from Error

1. We shouldn’t believe everything we hear and read.

“Satan’s plan is to distort true doctrine. We should consider not only the source of false doctrine but the danger of false doctrine. False doctrine denies true doctrine. False doctrine distorts truth. False doctrine deceives.” —David Allen

2. Truth from God will be rooted and grounded in the truth about Jesus Christ.

3. The Holy Spirit will guide and lead us away from lies and keep us in the truth.

“The opposition of Satan—the world system that daily assaults us, false teachers that seek to seduce us, faulty worldviews that attempt to confuse us, and our own sinfulness that yearns to enslave us—is divinely ordained to fail. —Daniel Atkin

4. We will grow in discernment as we grow in hearing, knowing, and applying God’s Word.
