Publisher's Description

Why do these tall tales grab our attention?


Overview


Just because an event is described in print or broadcast on the radio does not mean it is a documented fact. Nevertheless, some Christians continue to believe and spread false reports. What kind of rumors make the rounds of the Christian community, and why do they command the attention of so many Christians?


Table of Contents


SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 13:1 26; Romans 12:2 3; 1 Timothy 1:3 7; Hebrews 5:11 6:3


LEADER'S GUIDE


    The Issue


Sample questions:


Describe a half-true or completely false story that you have recently heard in your Christian circle.


Why do you think these fables and myths have continued to be passed among Christians for years? Do you think it is possible for Christians to put a stop to these persistent rumors? If so, how? If not, why?



    The Scriptures


Sample Scriptures:


In 1 Timothy 1:3 7, why does Paul urge Timothy to instruct certain men not to pay attention to myths and teach strange doctrines?


According to Hebrews 5:11 6:3, why should Christians be less credulous about unsound information the longer they are Christians?

    The Application


Sample application questions:


In what ways can Christians check a story to determine what is true about it?


Why must we be careful not to go to the other extreme, rejecting everything we hear?
