What Is A Discerning Christian?
Spiritual Maturity and Biblical Discernment
Christian discernment begins first with salvation in Christ (Hebrews 5:1-14), and then maturing as a believer through the teaching of God’s Word (1 Timothy 4:1-8). As the believer grows in their walk relationship with God, they ought to be able to discern between both good and evil, to "test the spirits to see whether they are of God," and to separate from spiritual error and false teachings.
Various illustrations include the dangers of redefinition of terms in pseudo-Christian Cults and in the Church, the dangers of yoga, Harry Potter witchcraft, vampirism and bloodlust, Oprah Winfrey and friends (Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Eric Butterworth, A Course in Miracles), astrology and the occult, Worldview confusion, false christs, false "anointed ones", and more.
