“The only way to deafeat Satan’s lies is with God’s truth. “Thus saith the Lord!” is the final answer to every question. Evil men and deceivers are going to get Worse and worse. They will deceive more and more. Why? Because they are being deceived by Satan! In these last days, there will be more deception and imitation; and the only way a believer will be able to tell the true from the false is by knowing the word of God.”
Functions of the Word (2 Timothy 3: 16)
The Bible teaches (what is right), rebukes (what is not right), corrects (how to get right), and trains us in righteousness (how to stay right).
John 5: 39-40
39 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
