More Noble Than They?

Yesterday in Bible time, Momma shared from I Corinthians 2:15. " But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." This verse talks about the spiritual man and how that he "judgeth all things". My Bible had another word for judgeth in my center column and that word was discerneth. So, those that are spiritual discern all things. They can discern whether those things are evil or good. That's why many of our cults today have many former baptists in their religion. Why? Because they were approached when they were "young" in the Lord and didn't have the spiritual discernment to see the evil.
But, how do we get this discernment? We must stay in God's Word and search the scriptures daily. It talks about this in Proverbs 2:1-9. Verses 10 & 11 of that same chapter gives the results of receiving wisdom and understanding from God's Word ~ discretion! A good example of this is in Acts 17:10,11. Verse 11 tells us that the Bereans received the Word but they also searched the scriptures themselves to see if what they were being taught was true. In comparing the Bereans to those in Thessalonica, the Bible describes them as "more noble".
This thought encouraged me to get in my Bible more and search it daily.

Amen, Brother Caleb!!! (Psa 119:105) Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. When we're in the Word, it lights our path so we are not easily deceived. We can spot a fake a mile away. Good job!!

Amen Caleb I agree one hundred percent we need to be discerners of the truth.

Great post Caleb!!! I could never have had the discernment to know right from wrong in my Christian life if it had not been for getting those things from God's Word and the preaching of it. How can we ever know what God expects of His children if we never read His "rule book" and love letter that He has given us to learn from? I'm so glad I have the Truth in writing and I love my KJB!! May it become even more precious to me as I continue on living for Him!!
