From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham
Q: How can we determine if a pastor is preaching from the Bible and not from another source that may sound good but is not God’s Word? – D.P.
A: Through Bible study and prayer, we are given discernment to tell the difference between what is of God and what is not. God’s people are instructed to test the various doctrines that abound, and test them against the standard of the Word of God. This should drive us…
I love Pastor Tony Evans! This is such a dynamite message for us all! Stay so very close to God!!!! Be closer to Jesus today than yesterday!

Pastor Tony Evans said God uses the devil to show Christians who they really are, and Christ is ready to come to the rescue as long as His followers “draw near” and pursue an intimate relationship with Him.
Evans, the longtime pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Texas, said in a sermon delivered Sunday that many Christians are not drawing near to God because they are “leaving a door open for Satan.” He stressed that “whenever God says one thing and Christians say something else, the devil is controlling them.”
