Nothing More Truthful

2 Corinthians 11:4
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

I understand that, among those who count themselves scholars, there is debate as to how to interpret this passage. I can't see the problem. Paul is speaking about preachers of false doctrine and says of them, if they can present something more truthful than he gave them, they would do well to receive it.

The thing is, there is nothing more truthful. 

I find here a fact that every Christian ought to take seriously; there are those who 
·       Preach another Jesus 
·       Have another spirit and
·       Represent another gospel 
In the book of Galatians he will say they are accursed. 

·       Not every Jesus preached is the Jesus of the Bible.
·       Not every spirit that influences souls is the Holy Spirit of God.
·       Not every message of good news is the power of God unto salvation. 

Therefore we must take heed that we do not accept any message other than that which is plainly given to us in the Bible.
