Q:  My point is with well chosen words and chosen verse you can prove anythings

how I and you can knows how to not fall in false explanation knowing that itís very easy to slip even if we had good intention?


A:  How can we make sure that we are not being misled by some false teacher with well chosen words and bogus arguments? Contrary to what many skeptics claim, the Bible is not like a fiddle on which you can play any old tune. The apostle John tells us: "Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God, because many false prophets have gone forth into the world... We originate with God. He that gains the knowledge of God listens to us; he that does not originate with God does not listen to us. This is how we take note of the inspired expression of truth and the inspired expression of error." (1 John 4:1, 6; 1 Tim. 4:1-2)

The truth will stand the test of intense scrutiny, unlike a lie. What John calls the "inspired expression of truth" originates with God, and it cannot successfully be contradicted. Truth never changes, not even with the passing of time. (John 17:17;
1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16) On the other hand, the "inspired expression of error" originates with the Devil, who is "a liar and the father of the lie";  as Jesus called him; and so are the many false prophets and false teachers against whom Jesus warned us. (Matt. 24:24-25; John 8:44-47)

We can know the truth when we have God's spirit to teach us, even the "deep things of God", as Paul explains. Yes, we can see through the "counterfeit words" (NTW), "clever lies" (NTL), "false arguments and twisted doctrine" (AMP), "made-up stories" (CSB), "smooth talk" (CEV), "good-sounding arguments" (GW), "deceptive words" (HCSB), and "fake prophecies" (NTE) by which the false prophets and false teachers attempt "to draw away the disciples after themselves." (Acts 20:30; 2 Peter 2:1-3)

The danger of being misled cannot be overstated! Jesus condemned the religious leaders of his day for making God's word invalid by their own teachings and doctrines, and so their worship was in vain, rejected by God. Jesus said that the "true worshipers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for, indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him." This in itself proves that we can know the truth, for God does not accept any worship that is tainted with lies and falsehood. (Matt. 7:21-23; 15:3-9; John 4:23-24)

How can we protect ourselves against "false arguments and twisted doctrine"; or "made-up stories" and "deceptive words"; or even "fake prophecies" that lead us away from the truth? Jehovah says that the righteous person takes delight in his law and in it he "reads in an undertone day and night". Such a person is protected and prospers "like a tree planted by streams of water, that gives its own fruit in its season and the foliage of which does not wither". (Psalms 1:1-6)

When we become well acquainted with God's Word, and are familiar with the sound of its truth, then we become qualified to distinguish between God's message and the things that are taught to the contrary. A false teacher's "good-sounding arguments" ― no matter how persuasively or emphatically such may be delivered ― will unfailingly sound to us strange, hard to listen to; just as in the case of a musician who plays the notes of his song off-key. Your ears will quickly discern that this musician is either not familiar with the song, or he is not qualified to play his instrument. Either way it's hard to listen to, as Job noted, "Does not the ear itself test out words as the palate tastes food?" (Job 12:11)

Jesus taught his disciples many things, which they acknowledged were difficult even for them to understand. (Matt. 16:8-12; 13:10-16, 36) But Jesus assured them that the time would arrive when they would not only recall all the things he had taught them, but also be able to understand them as these things meant everlasting life. He would send them the "helper" and "teacher", as he referred to the holy spirit, that was from the Father. (John 14:16-17, 25-26) This was fulfilled with the outpouring of the holy spirit on the day of Pentecost. We too can come to understand the truth of God's word, because it is the same holy spirit that is teaching us today. In fact, if we belong to God, we have his spirit dwell in us, as the apostle Paul explains. (1 Cor. 3:16-17; Rom. 8:9) Therefore, we need to show appreciation by studying God's Word diligently.

"May you have the power to understand, as all Godís people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God." ―Ephesians 3:18-19, NLT.
