If it looks like a duck…

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and waddles like a duck, it must be a…

Goose?

And a lovely goose at that. Or, so it would seem.

Let’s try again…

If he acts like the world, looks like the world, has a filthy mouth like the world, he must be a…

Christian? Preacher? And was once quite a popular one. Good.

Next…

If he quotes false teachers, supports false teachers, and fellowships false teachers, he must be…

“The man who has done the most for Christianity in the last century”? Or, so many would say.

Sad.

Seems the truth may be harder to discern than God would have us believe…

or,

maybe, just maybe, the problem is that, rather than turning to God’s Word so that we can discern truth, we believe everything and everyone that comes along…

everyone except God.

Maybe the truth wouldn’t be so hard to discern if we actually spent more time in it.

And maybe, just maybe, that thing that looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and waddles like a duck really is…

a duck.

  1. Yes indeed. It seems society has programmed society and the church to be tolerant of everything except God and His truth.

    The day is quickly coming where speaking the truth of the Word of God will end someone up either in jail or dead. Here in Canada, Trudeau is passing a law that anyone who speaks out against a transgender or about a transgender will automatically get two years in jail.

    This is some world we’re living in. No wonder everyone is so able and willing to be accepting of anything that comes their way.
