So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead.


Children cannot keep their attention on one thing at a time. When they are fully absorbed in a game something catches their eye and whoops… they are off.

I have had the wonderful pleasure of watching my two children grow up and, even though they are quite different in nature and character, they were both easily distracted.

You are not to be enticed or drawn away by some fad that comes to town in the disguise of Christianity. First, examine it according to the rules:

  • Is it in total agreement with the Word of God – not even a    little bit off?
  • How does your spirit feel? Ask yourself, “What do you think about this, do you witness with it?”
  • Is your pastor 100% behind it? Ask him, he is responsible for taking care of your soul.

Once everything is in order, go ahead. If it is not, keep away. The Bible warns us of wolves that feast at our tables.

We are to grow out of the childhood stage of Christianity and become mature men and women of God.
