Testing The Spirits

From Series: Life Assurance, Volume 2

1 John 4:1-6  (ID: 1481)

The Apostle John understood the need of every believer to be certain that authorities teach the truth of Christ, and not a message distorted by the evil one. Highlighting the contrast between the messages and audiences of both truth and falsehood, Alistair Begg helps us to understand the command in 1 John 4 to “test the spirits,” particularly within the context of false teaching.


Test the Spirits

1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
