discernment-roadfork1As I wrote in ‘Who? and Why?’, my journey out of the cloud which is the American Church began when I was doing research into a book my mother-in-law was reading with her church.  At the time, I had no idea what a discernment ministry was or who to turn to for information.  I just googled book titles and names and read the articles that I found.  It did not take me long to discover that the Internet had opened the door to an entirely new world of options for ministry, especially concerning discernment!

In Acts 17:11, we read that Paul and Silas taught in the synagogue of the Jews in Berea.  These Bereans “were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.”    (Emphasis mine.)

Did you get that? 

These Jew checked up on the teachings of Paul!  They did not just listen and accept everything that was said as truth!  They went to the Scriptures to compare it to Paul’s teaching!   

We need to be doing this, also!

Here are a few of the websites that helped me early on.  This is just a few.  I will post more later. 

~~~It is my prayer that you will find these sites as spiritually eye-opening as I have. ~~~
