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).

Religious Stand for Lies, Believing They’re the Truth

From: Richard To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, May 08, 2016 5:19 PM Subject: Re: ray comfortDaniel 12:2,   Matt. 25:46, 41,  7:21,  8:10-12,  2 Thess. 1:5-10,  Rev. 20:10.  There are so many more, JESUS spoke more of hell than heaven. Day and night forever and ever means what it says. JESUS said that the path to glory is narrow, the path to destruction is wide, most take the wrong path, look around. Your scriptures do not show context for salvation to all. GOD said HE wished none would be lost. If all would be saved, HE would not have needed to bring that up. If GOD was going to save everyone there would have been no need for JESUS to die, HE would have just stayed here until everyone got it. Hell is real and forever. I will pray that GOD will open the eyes of your heart. Remember, GOD doesn't send anyone to hell, they do it themselves. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Richard Sent: Friday, May 27, 2016 7:19 AM Subject: Re: ray comfort“JESUS said that the path to glory is narrow, the path to destruction is wide, most take the wrong path, look around.”We are looking around, Richard, and we see you in hell, traveling the wide path of destruction along with all of nominal orthodox Christianity. Read The Restitution of All Things, The True Marks of a Cult, and Diabolical Doctrines. Paul and VictorFrom: Richard To: Paul Cohen Sent: Friday, May 27, 2016 9:41 AM Subject: Re: ray comfortOne of the things that defines a cult is s...

Is Tithing for the Jews Only?

We talked to Billy on January 13th, An older man who was excited about our taking false teachers to task. I told him to spread the word – to share our writings on the net and wherever he can. I asked him if he’d like to receive our letters, to which he said, “yes.” This is the correspondence:From: Billy To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, January 08, 2016 5:38 PM I have really enjoyed your information. Is there anyway that you would permit me to help you? If so how? We all need to know how to expose the false teachers of our age so that we can trace the path that they used to led man astray?

Marriage Before The Lord

On December 21, 2022 a website visitor, Marcin, left the following comment in response to this letter:3 days later, an “alek” replied to Marcin:After a few questions regarding the identify of Alek we received a comment from a website visitor named Amber, fessing up to the fake profile and explaining her situation and problem with Marcin:Marcin responded:Marcin prepared this response for Amber and sent it to Victor to determine if it was appropriate to share publicly:From: Marcin S Sent: December 25, 2022 6:03 AM To: Victor HafichukAmber,Yes, my picture is me from two years ago or so. The facts you provided are mostly true, apart from you having that dream from God. And I assume March 2021 refers to my repentance at that time, though that was a checklist repentance, a work of the flesh, and not godly repentance.Anyway, I asked about your picture because the person in the picture, and your name, do not match. See the source for the picture:https://collive.com/no-were-not-amish/I'm also skeptical that you came here from harvesthaven.com, though I don't have proof for my suspicions. But if you did, how did you come across harvesthaven.com?Now, you know I don't like playing games, Amber, so cutting to the chase. You say I'm hiding behind false righteousness, but that's what I'm trying to leave behind. I know now that I'm a sinner, who cannot do anything good or right. But, during my time with you, I definitely...
