Testing Truth and Error

A WORD OF CAUTION

Apply the Doctrinal Test: Who is Jesus? (1-3)

  • Purpose of the test …
  • Reason for the test …
  • Crux of the matter …
    • Is Jesus Christ fully human?
    • Is Jesus Christ fully God?

 

A WORD OF ASSURANCE

Apply the Personal Test: Who am I? (4-6)

  • I am a child of God … from God.
  • I am an overcomer … by God’s Spirit.
  • I am other-worldly (John 17:14, 16).

 

Test the spirits.

Trust the Spirit.
