It is great to hear someone *encouraging* Believers to discern. It seems, however, we are often discouraged to do so. We are frequently mocked, minimized, judged, condemned, attacked, labeled "Pharisees," etc when we discern ... especially by Christians and leading "Christ-followers." Perhaps, in our age of error, nothing is needed more AND shunned more than biblical discernment.

Great video. The key to discernment, as he said, is to know the Gospel so well that anything that is not the Gospel will be exposed. I've been blessed to be a part of a Christian tradition that does encourage discernment; that tests all things--including our own cherished viewpoints--and holds fast to that which is good, shunning that which is evil; that is constantly going back to the Scriptures. Perhaps such communities are the exception rather than the rule, but I encourage each of us out there. Such communities that are centered on the Gospel and that encourage discernment do exist! Continue to look, and God will guide you. Blessings to each of you!

I wasn't able to see the video for whatever reason, but I will say that discernment is really needed in our churches and in the lives of believers today! A lack of discernment is a dangerous thing, because the enemy is always looking for a way to deceive God's people. We must know the Word for ourselves... Mary Davenport

An important message! In my second book (still in preparation!) I devote a whole chapter to the importance of doctrine - for living; for thinking; for evaluation; for knowledge. "And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine." (Matt.7:28) If He taught it, then I have no reason not to do so!

So, what did you think?


Thank you.
