Lesson #2: The Biblical Basis of Discernment

“Compared with intellectual and moral achievements, the conquests of the sword dwindle into insignificance. Ideas rule the world; ideas are immortal.” (Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church)


Since “ideas rule the world,” it’s critical that Christians learn to tell the difference between good ideas and bad ideas. In Lesson One, we learned that discernment is the ability to examine, test, try, judge, or prove an idea with the result of separating or distinguishing the good from the bad. Developing the ability to do this is the goal of these lessons.
We also learned that there is great need for discernment among Christians today. With all the false religions, wrong philosophies, and immoral cultural messages being circulated today, believers need to distinguish the acceptable from the unacceptable. Unfortunately, many believers are simply undiscerning.
Now we want to expand that definition by looking at the biblical words for discernment and see what we are to be discerning about.
