    Test(try) and study, that's what a good Christian should do.

    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    1 John 4:1-6 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

The problem with determining what is true always comes down to interpretation. The most literal interpretations lead to ultra-fundamentalism like the type we see in the Taliban and to a lesser degree the Christian Coalition. Any group that FORCES it's members to conform to a set of beliefs is harmful, whether its Catholic Inquisitors, Zionists, Islamists or Jonestown. <U> It's the US vs. THEM mentality and claims to absolute truth where the real problem lies.

    Perhaps this is what Christ had in mind when he said;"I am the Way and the Truth and the Life'

    I know that anyone who twist the word of god or takes away from it is occult.That is the same way satan twist words to lead Adam Eve astray .God tells us plain we will know them by their fruit is it all about love or personal gain?God is love if love is not the main teaching fear is rebuke them .God bless you all
