Toadstools Versus Mushrooms

Toadstools Versus Mushrooms

A woman risked her life and that of her family on a page from the National Geographic Magazine, when her husband brought some strange-looking things in from the fields. The family was undecided whether they were mushrooms or toadstools, until someone dug up a Geographic that showed plates of edible varieties. Their harvest was pictured, under the name of "Shaggy-mane," definitely "edible." With this as the basis of their faith, they prepared and ate the mushrooms. Nobody suffered.

Here is a perfect illustration of "receiving the witness of men." But God has said that "If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater. ..." (I JOHN 5:9). You can risk your life ten thousand million times more securely on the Word of God than on the pages of the Geographic. You can even risk your eternal life on the Word of God. In fact, if you do not risk your eternal life on the Word of God, you will have eternal death. "... these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name" (JOHN 20:31).

1. What about the scriptures makes them “ten thousand million” more trustworthy than man’s word?
2. If God’s word is trustworthy and true does this mean that there can be errors found in the word of God?
