The Duty Of Discernment

Jude 12-13

Do not be blown about by false teaching - Ephesians 4:14
1. Discernment is incumbent on all of us
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22, 1 Corinthians 2:14-15, James 1:6
The Bereans - Acts 17:11
Studied the law (God's Word) - Philippians 1:9
Received the gospel with ready, engaged minds - 2 Timothy 2:15
They tested what they heard by the scriptures (Old Testament)
Discernment is the mark of spiritual maturity - Hebrews 5:11-15, Romans 1:28-32
2. Answering the Critics
Judge Not
Don't Call Names
Follow Gamaliel's advice
Touch Not My Anointed
You're Not Loving
But Aren't They Sincere
