Are you easily taken in by a preacher’s smooth style that you accept his every word — hook, line and sinker? - Daily Bible Reflections September 18,2015


TRUE OR FALSE
 
Whoever teaches something different and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the religious teaching… has a morbid disposition for arguments and verbal disputes. From these come envy, rivalry, insults, evil suspicions. – 1 Timothy 6:3-4
 
       I parked my car in the free parking area adjacent to the city hall. I had parked there for countless times, so I was confident that there’d be no problem.
       Later, when my mom and I returned to the parking area, I saw my car about to be towed away! The traffic officer said that I parked in a “No Parking” area. I argued that there was no sign and that there were other cars parked there when I arrived. He explained to me why cars couldn’t park there but I found his reason unacceptable. I told him that if there was a sign, I wouldn’t have parked there.
       My arguments fell on deaf ears. They towed my car and I paid the penalty.
       Paul warns Timothy to be wary of those who stray from the sound teachings of the Gospel for they open the door to quarrels and division. Laws and teachings — man-made or God’s — are subject to different interpretations and are twisted at times for self-serving purposes. So as not to be fooled, we must study God’s Word and be more discerning. Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are you easily taken in by a preacher’s smooth style that you accept his every word — hook, line and sinker?
 
Lord, grant me the wisdom to discern true from false teaching.
 
St. Joseph of Cupertino, pray for us.
