Many restaurants advertise that they sell only Angus beef, implying that the quality is superior. I know for a fact that Angus beef is good because my Dad raises it, and I have enjoyed it often.
Imagine someone going into a restaurant that advertises Angus beef. He orders a hamburger and takes a big bite. Suddenly, he spits it out and throws the burger up against the wall. Angrily, he shouts, “There is no way this is Angus beef! Who are they trying to fool?! This beef is obviously a Holstein/Hereford cross!”
(Please don’t try this prank! It is only to be enjoyed in our imaginations! Besides, I seriously doubt that everyone shares my warped sense of humor.)
Most people don’t have taste buds as sensitive as the fellow in my story. However, we must be sensitive to the fact that there are many different false spiritual beliefs that are trying to pass themselves off as the real thing. We must be discerning enough not to swallow anything but the truth.
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.”—Psalm 34:8.
