Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

10:46 PM - The Importance of Bible Doctrine

The word "doctrine" simply means teaching. Bible doctrine, therefore, refers to the teaching of the Scriptures. Since the days of the apostles, Bible-believing people have had an emphasis upon sound doctrine, but today doctrine is often downplayed in favor of ecumenical unity. The following statement by popular singer Pat Boone, a charismatic, typifies the attitude that is common among ecumenists: "Doctrine divides, experience unites. We don't all have our doctrine all completely correct, but God doesn't judge us on our understanding of
doctrine." (August 17, 2001).

HOW IMPORTANT IS DOCTRINE?

According to the Word of God, sound doctrine is extremely important.

1. The two Greek words translated "doctrine" in the King James Bible, didaskalia and didache, are also translated "teacheth" (Ro. 12:7) and "learning" (Ro. 15:4). These Greek words are used more than 140 times in the New Testament, which shows how important doctrine is before God.

2. Doctrine and its companion terms are referred to 59 times in 1 and 2 Timothy alone.

3. "The truth" is referred to 10 times in 2 and 3 John alone. The apostle John said, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth" (3 Jn. 4).

4. 1 Timothy 1:3 says that no false doctrine is to be allowed, which is a very  narrow view of doctrinal purity.
