When is it alright to speak things in God’s name that He hasnt said? When is it alright to misuse the name of God and speak of a different Gospel than that of Christ Crucified?

The goal of this post is to help you to see that just because someone says something about God doesn’t always mean it’s true. Go to the biblical text and read it in context. Always keeping your eyes on Christ because He is what the Bible is about (John 5:39)
