There are people out there that like to "teach the Bible" to others. Problem is, in most cases they don't even know what they are talking about. They hear someone tell them that a verse means something and they accept it as truth then they go around repeating it to everyone that will listen. They don't even take the time to find out for themselves by applying James 1:5-6 to the information they were given so they can find out from the Author of the Bible, through the power of the Holy Ghost, it what they learned is true or false.
When ever I teach a truth in here I tell all to ask God if it is true or not. I never see Bill or anyone else in here say the same. I don't expect anyone to believe what I teach in here because I might be teaching falsehoods. NEVER TAKE A PREACHERS WORD ABOUT WHAT THE BIBLE MEANS!
ALWAYS GO TO GOD IN PRAYER AND ASK IF WHAT THE PREACHER IS TEACHING IS TRUE OR FALSE!
That goes for what people in here try to teach you too. Ask 5 people what the same verse means and you will get 5 different answers. ASK GOD and you get the truth.
I,m not saying that preachers and people are out there trying to misslead you, ( altho some are so they can get the congrigation to pay their morgage and buy them a new car and pay their bills and their kids things too) This is refered to in the scriptures as (PRIESTCRAFT). Some are guenuinely concerned for the people and teach WHAT THEY BELIEVE TO BE THE TRUTH.
Let me ask you, do you find the Bible confusing on some subjects?? Do you find contradictions in it?? When you ask a religious leader what something in it means, do you get the reply that it is a mystery of God and you aren't supposed to understand it?? Are the explanations you get from others about the Bible spund stupid and hokey and un understandable??
You are not alone, there are millions out there the same way.

WHILE LISTENING TO IT, PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE FEELING.
