Discerning the Difference

Missing dog

I had begun my morning walk when a man asked if I had seen his Rottweiler. Someone had reported a black dog running with a Dalmatian. Soon after, I spotted the pair. I called them and they came to me.

When the man returned, I pointed to the black dog. “Nice try,” he said. His dog was about twice its size.


Accept no substitutes!

Mistaken identity. It happens all the time. Often error appears remarkably like truth. But counterfeit is not truth—all the more dangerous because it resembles truth (Galatians 1:6-9).

The owner obviously knew his dog from others. Do we know the Scriptures well enough to distinguish truth from any error that just might come along?
