Off On My Tangent - HOW TO IDENTIFY THE TRUE RELIGION

Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess and the 43rd post in my series entitled "Off On My Tangent!"

Have you ever heard something that sounded too good to be true? How would you go about proving what you'd heard was in fact true? Well, you'd probably make a thorough investigation into the report you'd heard to prove the truth of the matter. That's what the Beroeans did in Biblical times when they first heard about Christianity from the apostle Paul. They didn't immediately dismiss the things they'd heard neither did they display a cynical or critical attitude. Rather, the Beroeans listened respectfully to Paul's message, which led them to carefully examine the Scriptures to prove what they'd heard from Paul was in fact the truth. (Acts 17:10-12) With what result? The Bible tells us that "many of them [Beroeans] became believers." The Beroeans had identified the true religion.
