1 John 4:1-6 | Discerning Truth and Error
1 John 4:1-6
Overview - We must examine every teacher.
Test #1 - What does the person confess about Jesus?
Test #2 - What does the audience reflect about the teaching?
John’s letters are very short, sometimes overlooked, yet powerful. He walks believers down three avenues of assurance – right doctrine, right living, real love – to remind us of the work God is doing in us. These letters give confidence to genuine believers to keep walking in faith and clarity to unbelievers inviting them turn to God in faith.
