Words mean everything to The Lord. It was with words by which The Creator formed everything.
We as believers are supposed to learn and to practice all things according to His Word. In John 6:63, The Lord Jesus speaks of words as “…spirits…”
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
In I Corinthians 14:32-33, The Lord set a principle in Scripture, that every word spoken or written by the “…prophets…” of God, must never fail to match what has already been written.
“And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
If this simple principle had been obeyed, it would have kept “…feigned words…” out of minds and mouths of those teaching and preaching in The Lord’s Churches; from the time of Moses back in “…the church in the wilderness…” (Acts 7:38), through the worldliness of “…the church of the Laodiceans…,” and until the trumpet empties the last new testament Baptist Church of its members.
For too many years, Baptists have failed in testing “…words…” written or spoken by our own kind preachers, teachers, and authors.
We have been given command to practice the words in I John 4:1.
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world…”
If that command was obeyed by more Baptists, those studying for the ministry would not have been subject to the negative effects of extra-scriptural theological words and terms.
Those false “…spirits…” would have been avoided in our kind of Baptist Churches and Colleges!
This “…falling away…” (II Thessalonians 2:3) from “…the certainty of the words of truth..,” (Proverbs 22:21) has caused many unauthorized definitions to the words “…given by inspiration of God…” (II Timothy 3:16)
The Old Paths Preparatory School stands ready, to assist future servants to be “…set for the defense…” (Philippians 1:17) of “…the words of faith and of good doctrine…” (I Timothy 4:6)
