“God Helps Those who Help Themselves.”
“When You Die, God Gains Another Angel.”
“Cleanliness is Next to Godliness.”
“It was God’s will for that negative thing to happen.”
“God is In Control.”

We hear ministers and believers make statements like this. Some statements sound good and encouraging, but we need to validate them with the Word of God. If it’s not literally or contextually in the Bible, it’s not true.

Look at the statement of “God helps those who help themselves.” This can’t be true because God helped us before we could help ourselves by sending His Son Jesus.

Negative things happening to us can’t be God’s will based on the fact He gave us promises to believe and confess to counter these negative things.

The biggest statement we hear is “God is in control.” If God is in control, He’s doing a poor job in the earth. There’s violence, sickness, and abrupt death daily. So, obviously God is not in control. God gave mankind dominion in the earth and He put us in control (Gen. 1:26). What we see is a result of mankind’s decisions operating with a free will.

It’s our responsibility to validate every statement we hear to ensure it lines up with the Word of God. If it doesn’t, we don’t have to accept or receive it.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.
