The scripture for today, May 27 (5/27), is Job 5:27 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“We have examined this, and it is true. So hear it and apply it to yourself.”
How many times have we gone to worship or listened on TV to a minister/priest/rabbi/imam and believed everything he said because the speaker looked so holy and convincing? Isn’t that confusing when so many different religious leaders teach different things, often conflicting?
What is the answer to this dilemma? Examine the Bible for yourself! You’re smart! You can do it!
The best way is to get a concordance. It has every word in the Bible alphabetically, and every scripture that contains that word. If you want to know God’s opinion instead of man’s, use your concordance and look up every passage your chosen topic appears in. You can buy one (it is the size of a large-city telephone book) or use one on the internet.
Then examine everything God ~ not man ~ has to say about anything. Then there are no doubts. Then you know the truth and are ready to apply it to yourself.
