Judging Miracles #1 of 3

June 9, 2010
In some cities, you can attend a miracle healing service almost any night, or see one on cable TV during the day. Miracles seem to be everywhere. Almost everybody wants one. Whose heart isn’t moved by seeing someone in a wheelchair desperate to walk again? But could those so-called miracles really be a form of demonic deception?

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

A common theme in cults is the cult leader’s total control of his people. False prophets need that sense of power. Unfortunately, false prophets inhabit the church as well as cults. As we run the race of life, it’s time to escape the clutches of controlling leaders. Today we will hear an expose’ of the tricks these people use to manipulate those who follow them.

“All that glitters is not gold.” That’s especially true of false teaching. Our task is to discern the genuine article. We need to avoid the rabbit-trails of error as we run the race of life. That means detecting and rejecting false prophets who offer another “gospel”, which is really no gospel at all Today we learn how to spot these wolves in sheep’s clothing.

In both Testaments, the Bible has a lot to say about false prophets. Most of it is bad news for prophet and follower alike. Modern-day false prophets promise blessing without repentance, and prosperity for all who send a gift. Some TV preachers exploit the vulnerable and lead many astray. Today we learn how to tell when teaching is off the mark, and error has replaced truth.

In a time when people won’t endure sound doctrine, it’s no great surprise to see so many false prophets on the airwaves. Television: it sells people what they want to buy. Some programmers use it to sell false doctrines and millions are eating it up. Today we learn how a discerning believer can and must separate truth from error when listening to teaching on TV.

There is no doctrine more important than the doctrine of salvation. Without it, we face a cold, dark, eternity. There is no room for error or opinion when your soul is at stake. What you and I need is the truth, and nothing but the truth. Today we look at the core components of the gospel, and why any teaching that omits them or distorts them is heresy.

Sound doctrine is what we need. Sadly, it’s in short supply from many modern-day prophets on religious television. Confusion over doctrine throws many people off the track in the race of life. They send money to those requiring money for the promise of financial freedom. Words of knowledge replace words from the Bible. Today we will learn how to discern false teaching.

If you watch enough religious cable TV, you'll be totally confused about which doctrines are true and which are false. In the marketplace of religious ideas, packaging and glitz often carry more weight than Bible truth. Today: you'll hear a pointed call to return to a standard against which doctrines must be measured, doctrines that impact your eternal destiny.

Cultural distinctives...music styles...food...we're quick to judge one another on matters that are not central to our faith. The race of life is tough enough without being called to task by another Christian for something the Bible is silent about. Today: learning to discern the difference between core principles and personal preferences to avoid judging others needlessly.

When finding fault in others, our vision is 20/20. It quickly becomes 20/200 when focusing on our own faults. Jesus taught us to not judge a small splinter in someone else's eye without first removing the large wood beam from our own eye. That principle is found in Matthew chapter 7 and it's our focus on today's broadcast. So, how's your eye today?

Turn on cable TV, and you'll see a variety of religious experiences. Are they all valid? And, is it even OK to ask? The wise believer runs what he or she sees through a filter of discernment, since there is much error mixed with truth these days. Today: a foundational study in Matthew chapter 7 to help us know when, and how, to judge what we see.
