Are you living, teaching in sound way?

By Todd Barrier  

If you search different social media platforms, you will find plenty of religious content. Some personalities – on TikTok and YouTube, for example – have quite a following. Many who don’t know much about religion flock to sites like these to get their info, and many Christians follow and learn from these accounts as well.  

The problem with some – not all, of course – is there is just flatout error in some of the doctrine.  

People are being led astray. Even some Christians are changing their beliefs.  

This is happening not because of what the Bible says but because of what some SAY the Bible says.  

Paul warns Timothy – and us – about the importance of teaching sound doctrine in 2 Timothy 4:3-4: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to fables. 

People want to feel good about life and the way they live it, even if it is wrong. Some people will twist things in a way to make us feel the way we want to feel – even if it is wrongMake no mistake about it. 

The main point here is, we’ve been warned this would happen. So, when someone preaches something that doesn’t sound right, even if they have a fancy title in front of their name, don’t take it as gospel fact. Go to the gospel for the facts.  

Are you living and teaching in a sound way?
