Minister’s Corner: Overcoming deception
By: DR. BRIAN DORE’

Galatians 1:6-9 KJV reads, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another, but there be some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accused. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Sometimes people are swayed to follow a doctrine that is false or unscriptural. There are times when people drift into their relationship with God because others have deceived them. It is vital to continually measure your opinions about God and Jesus with scripture. If your beliefs do not match the Bible, you are in the wrong. For Christians, the Bible is our authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
