God's Way the True Way

"Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ. As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossains 2:4-9) There are many people in the world that try to give you false beliefs of what you should belive about God and how you should practice those beliefs. Some are sheep in wolves' clothing. They may appear to be honest and good on the surface, but at a closer look they are not as God would want. And, they will try to persuade you that there way is right. Beware of those people, especially the stronger they try to persuade you. For a truly God fearing servant of God will yield his way to the way of The Holy Bible. The best way to know whether or not a way is the right way is to read The Holy Bible and ask yourselves these questions: Does this go with what The Holy Bible says?? Is this something God would want for me/for me to believe? And, in a modern cliche, "What would Jesus do?" God's words to us through The Holy Bible are complete and full, and therefore we can root ourselves completely in Him, and, we are to bind ourselves to His teaching and not those of the world.
