B is for Berean

Okay. It's a simple and typical B. Berean. How many of us are truly Bereans? What does that even mean? Some may ask.
So many of us just take what our pastors or friends tell us. They listen to what some website has to say. Some will even watch movies and take that as the "truth."
But what does being a Berean mean? It means listen to what people say, but verify.
I like to give my opinion here. I share my views. I can even point to scripture to maybe back up my claims.
But so many people don't dig deeper...Someone once told me that they didn't need to read their Bible because their person in authority would tell them what they needed to know. I asked them well, what if they're wrong.
I've been wrong. It's easy to get caught up in "Well, Pastor So and So said..." So many of us just take what someone tells us and don't find out for ourselves.
Example: How many wise men were at the manger? Most would say 3. The Bible says the wise men entered the house (not the manger) and doesn't say how many. (See Matthew 2:11) So were they at the manger? Not according to the Bible.
This is just a blog to make you think. Don't take my word for anything. I hope you listen to what I say but find out for yourself. I'm just like the woman at the well. I like to talk about Jesus, but I hope you come to experience Him for yourself.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.
Eat cheesecake. Listen to Pink Floyd. Love Jesus.

Thanks dude. Still busy, but trying to get something written even if it's only minor. Too much to do, no time to do it.
