The pastor’s statement startled me. He had just contradicted the Bible.
As a new believer, I read my Bible daily, studied it, and listened to Christian radio and TV. I knew what this man said was wrong. And the woman he spoke to had nodded her head as if the pastor had said something profound.
I was a worker at my son’s daycare, and–as I said–a new believer. How could I correct a pastor? As soon as the work day ended, and I got home, I flew to my Bible, flipped to the page he had talked about, and read the scripture. I was right. The preacher was wrong.
That day opened my eyes to the fact that many people–even pastors, preachers, evangelists, etc–did not actually know or study the Bible. They often took what other people said as truth and repeated the same misinformation to others.
