(Rick Becker – Famine In The Land) We identify false teachings by comparing them to what is clearly taught in scripture. Sound exegesis of a text will separate truth from error, and expose the twisting of scripture. The reason false teachers have to ignore the context and distort the truth, is because what they teach is NOT taught in scripture. If the teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and other heretical movements were true, then we should have a different bible….
In this post, I speculate as to what Paul should have written in order for some of these false teachings to be true. It won’t take long for you to realize that what many in the visible church and the NAR in particular have accepted as truth, is not only a lie, but ludicrous.
Things Paul never wrote to the Romans.
• I’m not ashamed of the gospel, especially the gospel of the kingdom which is the power to transform the nations.
• How can we rejoice in our sufferings when there is no suffering in heaven, this ought not to be so!
• For I know that something good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh.
• Creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God, a special new breed that will usher in the kingdom of God on earth.
• If God was willing to give his son for us, will he not give us all things? Now by all things, I mean anything you desire – new fishing boats, a house on the banks of the Jordan etc.
• Don’t worry about tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or the sword separating you from the love of God, because these misfortunes never happen to those who know their rights as believers.
• How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news – and leave out the part that all have sinned and are under the wrath of God unless they repent.

It seems presumptuous to speak of understanding God and his ways. And yet, he has graciously revealed himself to us! It’s not an exhaustive revelation, but it is a true and sufficient revelation. God’s self-disclosure is sufficient to humble us and make us aware of our need for his grace. It’s enough to bring us to our knees, to drive us to repentance, and compel us to worship. Order here
