This was the big takeaway from Week 3 of our series Dear Church, as we looked at the letter written to the church in Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-17). If we are ever going to be able to recognize false teaching, we have to know the Truth.
Study Bibles — Pick the translation you like; Go to the store and look through them to see which one you like best. A little over a year ago, I switched from the NIV Life Application to the ESV Study Bible, and I really like it.
Bible.org — A great resource and starting point anytime you want to learn a bit more about a topic or passage of scripture.
