Thanks for the message, Carolyn. You're right. It's hard to know. On one hand, I'm thankful for the internet where we can pop up a topic and add "verses in the Bible" and it will give us those references, but often it takes some more digging and reading. I would encourage you to continue to read as you are doing. I'm excited you are almost through the Bible. Each year I read through the OT once and the NT twice. I've done this many times and yet I still don't know it all and dont' remember it like I should. So I continue to go back to the Bible (and Google) to find the references and answers. As far as resources, continue coming back to us here at BttB. We've been committed and will remain to teach the full counsel of God. Some other websites you can try for simple answers to complex questions would be www.gotquestions.org and www.carm.org. As people of the Word, we want to understand the original meaning of the text and find the timeless principles for us today so we can apply it appropriately. I ask myself the question "how would the original audience have understood this message." Often the plain reading is the right one. Often the obvious is correct. If you would like some specific teachers to reference I can offer those as well. And above all pray for wisdom. Pray for eyes to see and to know truth. God will provide it when we sincerely seek Him. God bless!
The thing is.. how do we know if we are being led by a false teacher?? I'm actually reading the Bible for the first time. I'll be 50 next month. I'm actually on the book of Titus (and yes...I read the whole Old Testament). It's taken me over a year to get to where I am at.. but I'm glad I just picked it up and started reading beginning to end.... there are tons of references to the Old Testament in the New Testament. My question is... throughout my journey.. I've been reading devotionals, and spiritual books, which is one reason it's taking me so long to finish The Bible. So how do I know if I'm being duped??? I'm Catholic and attend Mass every Sunday. I feel like what I'm reading so far seems to cut in.. but where does one look in the Bible for answers???? Since it's so new to me I just can't say, (oh I'll read The book of Roman's, one of my favorite books by the way, too find the answer in looking for). I love this site and am the teachings of books verse by verse.... it helps me learn. I just don't want to fall under false teachings. Sometimes it seems scary to me... Sorry for the long post. I just hear this all the time.. be weary of False Prophets .... so how did one really know?? Any help or insight would be appreciated. Peace and Love Carolyn
Amen

There are far to many false so called percher's. Just turn on your TV you'll find many. Truth lies only In The Holly Bible, God's Truth God's Word. Never allow anyone to lead you away from The Holly Bible. Yes we may have different interpretations but that is when we must "study" God's Truth. Heavenly Father I Praise for The Holly Bible The only True Word of You Lord. Father there are far to many who try to twist Your Word from pure lies. I Thank You Lord that all I have to do is open The Only Book that matters The Holly Bible. That I cling to only Your Truth Lord. Father often people say to me do you read the book of Mormon. Father You know there's no way I would ever read it for it is of diss truth and pure diseption! I turn to You Jesus for my every need and through The only Holly Bible of Christ Jesus. I Praise for the times I stumble and the storms You lead me through coming out an overcome r stronger because of Your Truth. For it is Your Truth that keeps we Your children growing healthy stronger in You. Thank You Lord in Jesus name Amen
Thank you for this.
Thank you
Excellent reminder, how to please God to stay healthy.
Awesome truth here!
not all that is said and hear you must say it is the truth. it is written seek and you shall find,
Truth from the Word not the world!
Amen.
Thank you awesome message.
I would hold steadfast to God's word in order to grow in truth and strength
There are so many "teachers" out there that you must be careful on who you listen to. But like Pastor Nat said, filter it through the bible and truth will be revealed.
Thanks pastor Nat. You have really drawn me closer to God each and every day.
Amen Lord let our ears hear and our eyes see the truth.
Amen
