IF the reader is REALLY concerned about getting the truth from God’s Word, he can STUDY God’s Word.
OR, he can listen to the various stories which are told by those who pretend to explain God’s Word.
This is particularly true during the end times–and this is especially true of those who gather in the churches.
WHY ELSE does the reader speculate that so many stories about what God’s Word SUPPOSEDLY says are told?
Some of these stories are told by trusted teachers.
Some of these stories are told by smiling wolves in the pulpits.
Some of these stories are told by publications which has been providing such stories for YEARS.
Regardless of who it is that is telling the story, the reader has to make a CHOICE.
The choice involves a little elbow grease on the part of all those who opt for studying God’s Word.
IF the reader decides to STUDY GOD’S WORD, then he should be prepared to read and study. This will involve a little time–and nothing, it seems, is more important to moderns than their TIME.
On the other hand, IF the reader decides that the stories told by trusted storytellers is the way to go, then this will NOT require much time at all.
It doesn’t matter if the subject matter is the gathering together of the followers of Jesus; the specific events of the last days OR the particulars of ANY last days’ details: inaccurate information is NOT a good thing.
BUT, so many of those who dwell upon the earth during the last days will allow SECONDARY CONSIDERATIONS to influence what they believe.
One such SECONDARY CONSIDERATION is time: their time, to be exact.
And MANY of those who “go with the flow” do so because they feel they are just too pressed for time otherwise.
The reader has an IMPORTANT choice to make.
Either STUDY God’s Word to learn what it says is true OR learn from what others say God’s Word says.
WHICH will the reader choose?
It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
