Last Sunday, I went to The Brook church. The pastor, Brian Mayfeild, is preaching a series on the book of Galatians. The first chapter of Galatians is a warning to believers. Paul tells the church to avoid those that preach Gospel distortion.
The main points of the sermon were:
- Distortion of the truth leads to perversion. Ultimately, perversion leads to death.
- In the Gospel, we find forgiveness and freedom.
- To reject the salvation Christ offers is to reject Christ.
I enjoyed the sermon, but I have a question.
There are so many denominations and cults that use the Bible, how can you be sure you are not being deceived? How do you know if you are being taught a distortion? These groups can look at the exact same scripture and come up with completely different interpretations. It all seems so confusing.
