Studying Books That Aren’t the Bible

Gentlemen and Brothers in Christ:

I am confused about some teachings at Church.  We are beginning a new Bible Study this Fall…except it isn’t from the Bible.  It is based on a book by Joyce Meyer, Battlefield of the Mind.  My concern is:  1)  Even though a man is teaching the class, he is using a book written by a woman (whom I believe to be not walking as she should).  Doesn’t that fall under a woman usurping a man’s authority?  And 2) Why would a Bible Study not be from the Word of God?  Why do people feel like they need something other than the Word?  I really don’t want to “start” something and I don’t know who to ask.  I have questions about our Elders being qualified to serve so I’m at a loss. 

I look forward to your advice.

In Christian Love,

Coral

Hi Coral, 

These postings on our site will answer your question about Joyce Meyer and women teaching in the Body of Christ:

Meyer, Joyce: Segment in “What Kind of Faith Do You Have?”

Diabolical Doctrines: Women Are Ministers of God in Spiritual Authority over Men

As for the technicality of discussing a book on spiritual matters found in the Scriptures as a “Bible study,” that’s not really an issue. The issue is whether the book is in harmony with the Bible, coming from the same Spirit of Truth Who inspired its writing, testifying of Jesus Christ. We know that’s the case with our website, for example, but not with Joyce Meyer’s book. 

Now you need to consider why your elders are blind to these things, Coral, and what you need to do about it. 

“But He answered and said, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:13-14 MKJV).

The Case for Coming Out

Sodom Judges a Hellfire Preacher
From: Gerald To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, January 15, 2016 1:45 PM Subject: Heaven and Hell are Real Num 16:31  And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:  Num 16:32  And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.  Num 16:33  They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.  Num 16:34  And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.  Num 16:35  And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense. The God you are presenting is different from the one i Know from the bible. He hates Sin to the extent of intending to wipe out a whole generation.  Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  Gen 6:7  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. God did drown a whole generation because of Sin, and what about Soddom and Gomorrah. Where are they today. Please tell people the truth. God will and has punished people by fire unless they repent.

Why Do Sacrifices Need Blood?
From: Donna To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, January 02, 2016 7:19 AM I agree with everything you say …….. the temple of the living YHWH is within man.  I believe though that there will probably be a 3rd physical temple built that no doubt will also setup animal sacrifice, which will try to negate the sacrifice of Yeshua. I have a question that no one so far has been able to answer….maybe you can and if not it is ok as some things maybe we cannot understand at this point.  Why does/did a living God require a blood sacrifice?  What is it about the blood of a physical being that would make a God require it for the redemption of sins?  Is it the actual chemical composition of it….or????  I cannot seem to be able to make sense of it in my mind.  Is it something like this -- since physical man fell from a higher place because of disobedience he because of the way creation was setup was destined to perish for all time…….is it because of how creation was arranged that if the “rules” were not followed that part of creation had to be destroyed….I think I get that……And then the son of man comes along perfect …..yet born of a woman…….chose to die a mortal death but in that death defeated IT and yet lives…..is it because He overcame this place  we through him overcome…..and it was not necessarily the actual blood sacrifice.    I think I understand everything except for the spilling of blood.   In your opinion is there going to be an end time…… when this system is cutoff? ...
A Green Party Advocate Exposed as a Liar
From: Victor Hafichuk To: Nathan Sent: Wednesday, December 03, 2008 12:47 PM Subject: A Curse on the Betrayal of Canada Stray curs gather. But the populace has spoken. No, they do not want any of these curs to be their guard dogs. So the curs go away, sullen and defeated - but not resigned. Now they gather together, their countenances suddenly changed, manifesting their true natures. They return, not seeking permission to serve as guards for the owners, but brazenly, as a pack with power in numbers to seize for themselves what they would still pretend to unselfishly guard. Cursed be they who, for personal gain, seize what is not theirs. Cursed be they who gather in the name of principle and virtue, but there only to take undue advantage. These are worse than unpretentious Somali pirates. Cursed be they who make unholy alliances, jumping into bed with any partner to please those not worth pleasing. Let them suffer the wrongs they seek to perpetrate. Let them be cursed of God, and let all people know that God reigns in Heaven against all ungodliness over the affairs of men. Let the pack be broken and scattered. May God grant wisdom and strength to those who would govern with discretion and honesty.
