“I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put snares alongside the teaching in which you have been trained-keep away from them.”
Romans 16:17 CJB
It’s real easy to see people that are not believers causing division around us! What we need to be on the lookout for is people on the inside causing division, teaching false doctrine and sharing half truths!
“They all tell lies to each other, flattering with their lips, but speaking from divided hearts.”
Psalm 12:2 CJB
These are things we need to be on the watch for, divisive language, flattering lips and false teaching! How do we combat this? By studying our Bibles and seeking God’s wisdom and direction, not fleshly desires!
“For the time is coming when people will not have patience for sound teaching, but will cater to their passions and gather around themselves teachers who say whatever their ears itch to hear. Yes, they will stop listening to the truth, but will turn aside to follow myths.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4 CJB
Today, more than ever we, as believers, really need to be studying and knowing our Bibles! There are a lot of false, misleading and divisive people inside the body of believers, unfortunately some of them are the leaders and teachers!
May your day be richly blessed seeking the LORD!
