Beware Of Adding To Or Taking From

There is a striking parallel between a misread compass and false biblical teaching. Both can cause a disastrous shipwreck. In fact, Paul warns us against “fables and endless genealogies” (1 Timothy 1:4) doing just that (1 Timothy 1:19).

Alexander (see #5) and Hymenaeus were two individuals who opposed the Word of God by placing false teaching in its place, and thus faced spiritual "shipwreck" (1 Timothy 1:19-20).

Today, biblical truth is not only being questioned in the religious world, in many cases, it’s being replaced in the church today.

Beloved, our ideologies, opinions, and philosophies must never replace the truth of God’s Word (John 17:17).

God’s infallible book called the Bible, is still the ultimate guide for our conscience in navigating life’s changing seas (Ephesians 4:11-15; 1 Timothy 1:3-5,18-19; 1 Timothy 3:9).

Let us therefore beware of adding to or taking from (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 22:18-19).
