Q. My question is: what are some things we can do as laypersons to counter or protect ourselves from being mislead by these so called factual shows on TV?
I know turning off the TV is probably number 1 on the list but these shows prove that people have a thirst for Biblical knowledge especially as it concerns end time prophecy. How can they protect themselves so that shows that say “Jesus was probably not a carpenter” will not cause them to question their faith or the truths in Gods word?
A. Acts 17:11 tells us to search the Scriptures daily to prove whether those things be true. Where our eternal destiny is concerned we shouldn’t take any body’s word for anything. There’s no substitute for knowing the truth. And Bible study not only insulates you from false teaching, it also builds your faith. Faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17)
