What Is Falsely Called  “Knowledge”

As we surf  the Internet,  we see a lot of  “what is falsely called ‘knowledge'”.     Much of it is simply opinions  that are not based  on facts.     Some of it is misinformation  based on someone else’s misinformation.     Accepting such misinformation  as truth  can be based on many factors,  such as liking the format of the website that presented it  —  having friends  who liked it  —  or just thinking  it sounds nice.

There have been problems with  “what is falsely called ‘knowledge'”  since the beginning  of time.     We can think of  how Eve was deceived  by Satan  in the Garden of Eden.     Becoming like God  just sounded nice  and good.     She could not imagine  the problems she started  with that false “knowledge”.     All sorts  of sins  have multiplied  with that first acceptance  of false “knowledge”.

In the early New Testament times  that false  “knowledge” came  in the form  of false preachers  making up their own versions  of what the gospel should be.     Although they confidently spoke  like know-it-alls,  their pretentious gospels  led people away  from God’s truths  and salvation.     For that reason,  the apostle Paul warned Timothy  in 1 Timothy 6:20-21,

O Timothy,  guard  what has been entrusted  to you,  avoiding worldly  and empty chatter  and the opposing arguments  of what is falsely called  “knowledge”  which some  have professed  and thus gone astray  from the faith.

Grace be with you.

We,  too,  need to guard  God’s word  as given to us  in the Bible.     We must avoid  all the “worldly  and empty chatter”  that is often found  in books  and the media  of all sorts  as they present New Age ideas  for prayer,  meditation,  wellness,  mental peace,  etc., etc.      All these false teachers  are leading many  “astray  from the faith”.     Those who are not  of the true faith  as given to us  in God’s word  (the Bible)  will not get  to heaven.

We cannot learn  the truths  of God’s word  if we don’t open up our Bibles  and learn  from God.

Thankful  for having God’s word,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  teach us Your ways.”

Love,
Margaret
