My friend told me that recently he and his family watched the movie, The Ten Commandments. It is good to have a movie based on a true Bible story. But does that movie show exactly what the Bible says happened? Or were things added to the story to make it more exciting?
You can read the true story about Moses and the Israelites in the book of Exodus. If you read the Bible verses first and then watch the movie, you will notice that some events were changed and many things were added. We need to read the Bible to know what really happened.
We may read books or watch TV programs that say they are from the Bible. But do those books and programs really agree with the Bible? We have the responsibility to study the Bible and know what it says. Paul wrote to Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15. He reminded Timothy that he should use God’s teaching in the right way. “Do your best to be the kind of person God will accept, and give yourself to him. Be a worker who has no reason to be ashamed of his work, one who applies the true teaching in the right way.”
Be sure that you know God’s truth from the Bible. Then share His message with other people.
