“And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, saying, ‘Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.’”


There are people who claim to be believers in Jesus, but they don’t believe the doctrines of the Bible. They don’t necessarily believe Jesus is the only way to Heaven. They believe in astrology. They believe in reincarnation. These things are emphatically taught against in the Word of God. We have today a generation of people who are “very spiritual” but do not believe the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

But the reality is we better get a bulldog grip on God’s Word and God’s truth. Thousands of churches are filled with moral people who had spiritual experiences but were not born again. Simon the sorcerer said he believed. But Peter said, “You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God” (Acts 8:21).

  • How can you know your faith is truly faith in Jesus and not in someone or something else?
  • How does clinging to God’s Word help you make this distinction?


Make a list of things you believe that come from Scripture. As you are able, note specific references that show you these things are real.
