View Transcript

Shalom, and happy morning to you. Those who do not study Scripture on their own and become familiar with precepts and prophecies, as well as the basic history of Yah’s dealings with his people Israel, are in danger of being deceived. Anyone can come along with any kind of doctrine and quote supposedly supporting verses to back their unsubstantiated claims.

Scripture itself explains how wisdom is obtained and what marks a person who is wise and understanding. The psalmist declares:

98 Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me.

—Psalm 119:98

The same psalmist writes that, the law and testimony, which are the books of Scripture, are perfect, making the simple wise. This we read in Psalm 19:7.

And, in Deuteronomy chapter 4, verses 5 to 6, Moses ensures the people that the decrees and regulations that Yah commanded them to observe would be a show of their wisdom to the surrounding nations if they obeyed them completely. We have the very same perfect law in our possession today, but if we do not read it for ourselves, we will remain simple and ignorant as concerns the true knowledge of this existence.

15 Only simpletons believe everything they're told! The prudent carefully consider their steps.

—Proverbs 14:15
