A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
How do you know if the church you attend is in line with God? How do you know if they just teach what you want to hear or really teach God's word? How can you guard yourself against the false prophets God's representatives always warn about in their writings?
It’s really pretty simple. Do two things consistently and you’ll figure out the counterfeits. You’ll know whether your church is sound in doctrine if you do these two things. Ready? First, read and study God's word every day. Read it from cover to cover. Don’t just pick your favorite verses and pull them out of context. Read chapters and books at a time. Get the story God’s trying to tell you through His prophets and apostles. His word does not contradict itself. The theme is the same from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. The Bible is God's story of redemption for you (insert your name in that pronoun).
Second, pray. As you read God's word again and again, you will begin to pray fervently. Your prayers may begin for yourself, but as His word is absorbed into your life you’ll begin to pray God's will for your life and for the lives of others. You’ll find yourself absorbed by the concepts in His word and as they transform your mind, your prayers will help you discern truth from falsehood.
