What You Should Know

Today, as in the first century, a virus is infecting the church, spreading the teaching of the Gnostic Gospel. As a Bible scholar recently warned, this Gnosticism threatens the shape of Christian faith.

Gnosticism is derived from the Greek word for knowledge, and it teaches that we are not saved by faith in Christ but by special knowledge. For Gnostics, the resurrection of Jesus was a symbolic event, and He only seemed to have a body. They insisted that we should believe alternative interpretations of His life.

False teachings like this have spread like a virus and undermined the faith of many Christians. These beliefs have been encouraged through books, movies, and TV programs, often in subtle ways.

In light of these attacks, it is important that you know what you believe and are prepared. Your faith is being targeted, and you must determine not to become a casualty.

Fill your mind with the Word of God. Make sure that you develop your personal relationship with Jesus. Don’t be manipulated by clever words or deceived with arguments that sound plausible, even if they are endorsed by a famous celebrity.

Remember, Jesus alone is the way, the truth, and the life and no one can come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). He is a real Person. He died for your sins, He rose again, and He is reigning forever. Make Him your Lord. Listen to Him. Serve Him. Know Him.
