Our first and final authority MUST be God’s Word alone, the Bible.
Make sure that you are reading God’s Word (living and active, inerrant) – not just in nibbles and bites, but in good meaty chunks – and not just books or websites ABOUT God’s Word (man’s interpretations and opinions, which are subject to error and bias).
The Word of God Himself, Jesus, tells us in Matthew 4:4:
Man must not live on bread alone
but on every word that comes
from the mouth of God.
All people are fallible, and despite their best intentions, can be led astray (and lead others with them).
Always, always search the scriptures to see if the things people say are so… Pray for the Holy Spirit’s teaching and leading into truth – that is one of His roles in your life as a believer.
