“For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.”
God’s Word is the standard of what’s right. Too bad that it’s not recognized as so by so much of the World. If it would be held up as the standard that it is, maybe we would have less crime and immorality.
Many people in the world are in darkness. They are raised in families where they are not taught the Word of God. As a result, they are left to judge what is right and wrong to themselves; and that is a very dangerous thing. The reason being is because when lying, stealing and criminal behavior are convenient and lead to financial prosperity, they are easy to justify. And sometimes, doing the right thing does not work to our temporal advantage.
Job 42:7: “… the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.”
It is not a light matter to misrepresent God. As a matter of fact, it is a sin (vs. 8). This is why it is so important for each individual to read and study God’s Word for themselves; and to test every teacher and preacher of the Bible according to the standard of God’s Word.
The doctrines that we accept or reject will affect our character and witness for God. If we accept false doctrines, we will give a false witness; and the tenth commandment condemns bearing false witness (Ex. 20:17).
Moreover, our focus needs to be on Jesus. He needs to reign supreme in our lives. We should not allow any teacher, preacher, or theory to become more precious to us than Jesus.
