To help in our daily walk with God, it is good to use outside sources that will encourage, and strengthen us as believers in Jesus Christ. We know there are a vast number of books, video sermons, preachers, and teachers out there today, but who should you listen to or watch, or read?
We have provided some information below on who we believe are true men and women of God that are ok to listen to or read, as well as some you should avoid. God tells us in Matthew 7:5 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
This is not a complete list, so before you listen to outside sources, pray that God will give you a spirit of discernment, and listen with spiritual ears to make sure what they are teaching lines up to what the bible says. Scripture tells us in 1John 1:1-3 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already
