“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.” {2Corinthians 10:3-6}

5 simple ways to protect our families beginning with us:

  • Personally spend time in God’s Word to know Truth for ourselves and recognize God’s character
  • Compare the words of every Bible teacher (any interpreter of God’s Word) to Scripture — no matter how popular in the world or “respected” in our churches. Do their teaching points align completely with God’s Word? {Acts 17:11}
  • Realize that a “half truth presented as if it were the whole truth is an untruth” {John MacArthur}. Truth is an absolute. Partial truth does not exist. We cannot glean Truth from a book filled with partial truths.
  • Is the path we are on wide {embraced and accepted by the world} or is it narrow {despised, ridiculed, and often lonely}?
  • Research every Sunday School Curriculum, youth group video, small group book study on the Internet. It contains a wealth of information. Perhaps spend some time on the links recommended here under {simple truth}. Specifically search a person’s name or book title.

“Live your life in such a way

that when your feet hit the floor in the morning,

satan shudders and says . . .  ‘OH NO, she’s awake!’
