With So Much Confusion How Can We Know the Truth?
By Betty Miller
At the present time there is no lack of confusing things that are going on in the world and this includes the Christian world. There seems to be no end of information that is available, as we are being bombarded by all kinds of media influences from so many different sources including the Internet, TV, radio, books, movies and mobile devices. Knowledge is a good thing if it comes from a source of truth, but today, much of what we are receiving is misinformation that is based on individual opinions, lies from immoral people and even “out and out” Satanic messages and influences. No wonder so many people are so confused.
The Internet is filled with ungodly confusing information that is put forth by different kinds of people who fall into various categories. Some are:
- Well-meaning people that are deceived
- Prideful people that want to be heard
- False prophets spreading deception
- Satanists spreading occultism
Other people are truly called by God to minister on the Internet and have been commissioned to bring a true message from God to the world. We received that call years ago when the Lord told us to bring His light to a dark place. Back in 1994 the Internet was mostly used by pornographers. That has now changed, as God’s people have stepped up and used the Internet to minister to others. Read the Miller’s testimony at: http://bibleresources.org/about-us/the-millers/
We must ask God to bring us the messages we need to hear and ask Him to lead us into all truth. However, we must be very careful on the Internet, as the devil is using it to deceive people all over the world. Parents, you must supervise your children’s mobile Internet devices so you do not lose them to the enemy. If we read something that brings confusion to our minds, wisdom would dictate that we not go there, nor allow our children access either. The Internet cannot sin; however, people that use it do and there is much evil in the world right now.
“Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.” 2 Timothy 2:7
“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33
God’s Word is Truth (Without It, We Perish)
The Bible talks about a time such as this, and also furnishes us true knowledge so that we can overcome the things that are bringing confusion in our lives. The Word of God is really the only source of truth, so if we want the truth, we must seek Jesus, Who is truth, and study the Bible which holds God’s written truths.
