I was just complimented by a pastor today for three of my articles that deal with faith. He said that all three, together are very intensive study on Christian living and the nature of Faith:
He said that there are truly sound principles in my instruction and asked if I was a pastor myself.
He said that my articles have not only "given him strength in his calling in life" but also have seen "that your words are actually effecting the congregation in ways he has not seen in a long time.
He said one of his laymen asked him about what "False Doctrine" is, especially in Revelation. I have never really considered it before
Actually, it makes me wonder if that is the "False Doctrine" that it is talking about in the Bible, especially in Revelations:
Doctrine is a codification of beliefs or "a body of teachings" or "instructions", taught principles, as the body of teachings in a branch of knowledge or belief system.
Maybe False doctrine is the teaching of principles without knowledge. There are many religious folk out there who are teaching from the pulpit, or in small groups, like in Sunday School, that do not have "knowledge" but claim authority by faith. Is it not because of Faith that we want to make sure in the accuracy of our instruction.
Where does G-Dly inspiration fit in with the concept of making sure that in the accuracy of our instruction? What is everyone else's take on this?
