Discern the Dangers of ‘Discernment’
Charles Spurgeon once said, “Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.”
Discernment is a powerful gift of the Spirit. It allows believers to unravel false teaching, make accurate judgments quickly, spot demonic counterfeits and expose the plans of the enemy.
In 2014, our culture calls evil “good” and good “evil” (see Isaiah 5:20). Human sexuality has lost all sacredness. All sorts of self-indulgence and violence is justified in the name of “rights.” False gospels fill church pews with inch-deep believers.Plainly stated, we need discernment now more than ever.
