Gospel Nugget for today . . . .
Some feel that it's all right for a person to believe whatever seems to help them, no matter how much God's Word opposes it. To see through the fallacy of this line of reasoning, we need only to recall the deaths of 900 people in Guyana who drank poison because their leader Jim Jones ordered them to. Or to think of the terribly disheartened people in our society whose depression stems from their involvement in fortune-telling, spiritism, or some other from of witchcraft. No wonder God warned Israel against all forms of the occult, and told them how to detect a false prophet! Yes, there are many ways that seem right but end in death. We must learn to be on guard against them. All forms of spiritism and any group or leader that denies Christ's deity should be treated with extreme caution. Error is often dressed in the garb of truth.
