An article by Tim Challies, blogger, author, and book reviewer
T.D. Jakes says that God eternally exists in three manifestations, not three persons. Greg Boyd says God knows some aspects of the future, but that other future events are outside of his knowledge. Creflo Dollar says because we are created in the image of God, we are little gods. Mormonism says God revealed new scripture to Joseph Smith that supersedes the Bible. Roman Catholicism says we are justified by faith, but not by faith alone. This world is a murky madness of true and false. For every doctrine we know to be true, there seems to be a hundred pretenders.
No wonder, then, that John tells us to “test the spirits” and Paul says, “test everything” (1 John 4:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:21). It is our sacred responsibility to examine every doctrine to determine if it is true or false. But how can we distinguish sound doctrine from false? How can we distinguish teachers of truth from teachers of error?

I have just been made aware of a free online Bible created specifically for users with vision disabilities. The website is optimized for screen readers and braille displays, tailored to individuals with low vision, color blindness and other sight impairment. There is a link to this resource on my Links page (under The Bible section, and called Accessible Bible), or just click here (or click the Read more link) to go directly to the site.

A (typically) brilliant blog article by Dr. Michael S. Heiser on why most churches don't teach much Bible content. For more from Dr. Heiser, be sure to visit his website at drmsh.com, although if you are the type who likes the lack of Bible content in church, his blogs may be a bit meaty for you!

An excellent article by Pastor Anton Bosch, published here with his permission, that urges caution when reading books and articles that describe Satan and the demons in ways that the Bible does not support.

A couple of weeks ago, while advertising an upcoming Bible study to my local church, I referred to the old analogy of the word of God being like the ocean, with us never venturing deeper than paddling in the shallows. How accurate is this analogy? I believe that it gives most Christians far too much credit... most prefer to not even get their feet wet! Are we in the age predicted by Amos (Amos 8:11-12)? Are we staggering about searching for the word of the Lord and not finding it? Perhaps we need a sea-change (excuse the pun!)
