When you meet someone for the first time do you automatically go off of everything you have heard about them or do you watch and listen to see who they really are? Is that a new thought?

Most folks have heard something about the bible. But sadly enough most have heard wrong. Did you know that many of today’s common scriptures people quote are not in there?

Tell me where it says any of the following.

  1. Good people go to Heaven.
  2. She or He has a good heart.
  3. God says we should unconditionally love each other.
  4. God will help those who help themselves.
  5. The rapture is coming.
  6. All things work out for the best.
  7. God loves everyone the same.
  8. Come as you are.
  9. No one expects you to be perfect.
  10. Hell is not a real place.
  11. God doesn’t send good people to Hell.
  12. We aren’t supposed to judge.
  13. Me and God have it all worked out.
  14. All roads lead to Heaven as long as you live a good life.
  15. You don’t have to go to church to be saved.
  16. We are supposed to forgive and forget.

Many of those are outright lies, most have no scriptural basis at all and even the ones that are remotely scriptural are sorely twisted. Yet folks quote them everyday. And most believe them. That is why they have no real relationship with the Lord. I challenge you to not only get in your word but to begin to answer folks with real scripture. I am challenging myself to the same. We need to get back to our roots. We need to strengthen and water our roots. It isn’t enough to just study your bible for yourselves we need to share it.

4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. 5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:4-8

We need to share real answers with folks not just remix the same ole ones. Because the same ole ones aren’t getting anyone anywhere.
