1John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they
are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2Tim 3:16:   All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable
for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

What does the Bible say? That should be what we ask ourselves when we  
listen to a preacher. Not everyone who preaches in Christendom is actually
preaching what the Bible actually says. We need to line up everything we
hear and read with Scripture and we need to read Scripture within its proper

Eph 6:17:   And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:

Is the sermon according to the Bible or not? Many preach right out of
the Bible but twist the meaning to suit their purpose. Clearly, we are to
read the Bible and keep the verses in context of the meaning given. Some
preachers pick one verse and then start preaching their own doctrine which
is contrary to the rest of Scripture. This is how cults form. This should not
be. We are to read the Word of God in context. We are to rightly divide the
Word of Truth. We are to know the Scriptures in other chapters of the Bible
so that we will not be deceived. All Scripture verses compliment each other
and there are no discrepancies. By reading the Bible we get to know God's
character of who He is and what is pleasing to Him.

If you were reading, "Gone With The Wind" you would
not take one sentence out of a chapter and expound on it.
You would at least read the paragraph to get the meaning
of what is being said. The same applies to Scripture.

We are to keep the meaning when reading the Bible. We are to read on in
the chapter to see what the Holy Spirit is trying to teach us. Preach the Word
and read the Word-- the whole Word-- not pick and choose verses. The Bible
is a book that is to be read completely-- Old and New Testament. We cannot
pick and choose. God intended us to read ALL of it. This is how we will know
when someone is not preaching the whole Word of God -- by KNOWING

Heb 4:12:
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than
any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents
of the heart.

John 5:39: Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
and they are they which testify of me.

We need to know the Scriptures. If we do, then we will recognize those who
preach falsely. We need to be on guard because the devil knows Scripture too
and will try and twist it if we are not careful and watchful of his devices.

Matt 22:29:
  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the
scriptures, nor the power of God.

Rom 15:4: For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for
our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might
have hope.

Rom 16:26: But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets,
according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all
nations for the obedience of faith:

2Tim 3:15: And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which
are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2Tim:3:16:  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

We need to line everything up with the Word of God and pray to the Lord
that He will lead us into all truth so that we will never be deceived. Many
times, I have encountered something that a preacher had said that didn't
quite "sound right" to me. I asked the Lord to show me His truth and by
reading the Bible and looking further into the chapter, I found that what that
preacher was preaching was totally out of context and actually false doctrine.

Be careful to line ALL things up with the Word of God...trust no one to do
it for you. Pray to the Lord to help you and to lead you always into truth so
that you will not be deceived.

Many of these doctrines out there really seem Biblically correct. The false
teachers will even tell you that, "it is Biblically correct" but they are not
biblically correct and they are preaching a false gospel and "another jesus"
not found in the Bible. A few examples of false teaching/dogma:

1) There is the "Prosperity" Doctrine that says, "Give to our ministry and
you will get a hundred fold. Give $1000 and expect $100,000."

2) There is the "Jesus suffered in hell, became born again and died
spiritually" doctrine.  Pure and outright Blasphemy!! Jesus was and is God
and never sinned--He is the spotless Lamb of God. His precious blood atoned
 for our sin. His death upon the Cross was ALL-sufficient.
1Peter 1:19  But
with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without

False preachers (Word of Faith) who preach the "born again Jesus" doctrine
say that Jesus suffered in hell for three days in order to redeem us. This is
NOT true. One has only to open up and read the Scriptures in the Gospel
where Jesus says to the thief on the cross;
"Today, you will be with me in
And when Jesus died, He said "It is Finished!" And the veil in the
Temple (Holy of Holies) was torn right down the middle, signifying that Jesus
indeed did accomplish all at the cross. For Jesus became the perfect sacrifice
for sin. He did not have to suffer in hell for us. He suffered so very, very
much for us while dying on the cross. His blood was shed-- that is why we
have redemption. Hebrews 9:22 says,  
And almost all things are by the law
purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Rev 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to
by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;  

Heb 9:26 For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the
world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin
by the
sacrifice of himself.

Heb 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever,
sat down on the right hand of God;

Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the
death of his Son,
much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

3) There is the "We have to pray to Mary to reach God" dogma. They claim
that she is the intercessor and will pray and make petitions to God on our
behalf. This is blasphemy.  The Bible says Jesus is the Mediator between God
and man...not Mary!
1Tim 2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Heb 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come
unto God
by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for

Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is
risen again, who is even at the right hand of God,
who also maketh
intercession for us.

These three false doctrines are not even in the Bible and
easily exposed in the light of the Scriptures above.  That is
why it is so very important for us to know the Bible and
what it says and where to find the verses.

2Cor 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not
preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or
another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

2Tim 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving,
and being deceived.

Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into
the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would
pervert the gospel of Christ.

2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there
shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable
heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves
swift destruction.
