John 7:27 However we know where this man comes from, but when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he comes from.”

Background: The people in the crowd are trying to figure out if Jesus was the Messiah. One person says, “no one will know where the Messiah comes from.”

Where did he get this from? It doesn’t say anywhere in the Old Testament that no one will know where the Messiah will come from. He may have convinced someone not to believe in Jesus with that statement.

Today, we still have untruths, myths, and assumptions coming out of the mouths of people in and out of the body of Christ.

We have…
“Money is the root of all evil.” This statement has people believing God wants us poor. It says, “the love of money is the root of all evil.” (1 Tim. 6:10). That’s a big difference.
We also have…
“God helps those who help themselves.” That’s not true. God says, before we call, He will answer (Isaiah 65:24). He’s always there to help.
Let’s not forget about…
“The bible condones slavery.” This alone has so many black people turning their backs on God. Slavery of bible times was very different from the slavery we know and hate. It actually would have been much closer to indentured servitude. Slaves were not expected to be enslaved for life (Ex. 21:2).

These are just a few statements thrown around, but it can impact those around us and have people believing a lie. In context, let’s validate every statement we hear with the word of God and speak the truth.
