“The Thinker” by Carlos Botelho

The Bible speaks of an ability that people can have to tell whether a teaching comes from God or not. That ability is known as “discernment.”

It appears that some Christians have a special gift for discernment. The reason I say this is because the ability to know which spirit is influencing a person (whether the Holy Spirit or a demonic spirit) is listed in Scripture among the spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:10).

Yet, even if you don’t have a special gift for discernment, you can learn how to be more discerning. Indeed, you must–if you don’t want to be easy prey for false teachers. And one of the most important ways you can do this is to learn the skill of thinking critically.

As a first step in becoming a critical thinker, check out this helpful article published in Biola Magazine, “The Art of Reasoning Well.”
