God’s Plumbline – exploring how to recognise and avoid deception
There is need to have a standard by which truth, behaviour and belief are measured and the plumbline of God’s Word provides this standard.
However, we live in times of much turmoil and confusion. As people have increasingly let go of God's truth, insecurity and chaos has pervaded our society. Even within the church we can get conflicting and muddled messages, unhealthy extremes and wrong teaching.
So how can we know what is truth, what is real and what is right? How can we steer our lives safely through today's world and avoid the deceptive traps of Satan – the father of lies?
Jesus told us clearly that deception would increase towards the end, and He commanded us to be wise and discerning. He is the One who is truth and leads us into truth. He wants to help us with growing in discernment.
This course will give you tools to help you build your life on God's Word, grow in discernment to avoid and, where necessary, be set free from deception. It will tackle common deceptions within the church using 1 Timothy 4:16 as a key scripture… ‘Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.’
