Word for the Day
"Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees." Then they understood that He [Jesus] did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. (Matthew 16:11-12)
Pastor Spencer - Few things in this world are more dangerous, more deadly to souls, and more damaging to society than false teaching; that is, teachings that are in conflict with the Holy Scriptures, and especially with the Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone. Any and every ill and wrong in this world can be traced to false ideas - from the Fall into Sin in the Garden, to the destruction of war throughout the ages, to the thievery and murder that takes place every day all over the world. Ships can be sunk, missiles shot down, armies defeated, nations conquered, but as someone once asked, "How do you kill an idea?!" The obvious answer is, with another idea. So, can we defeat evil with laws, rules, regulations, and legislation? Sorry, no, that will not work. There is only one antidote for the nasty yeast of false doctrine, and that is the pure Gospel of mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Nothing else is needed. Indeed, nothing else will work! Spread the Bread of Life today!
