Sometimes they're right, sometimes they're not. The only way we can know for sure is to compare their words with the Bible.
The Bible is actually God's Word ("God-breathed") which is why we can always trust it.
If you don't know where to look in the Bible to find answers on a particular subject:
- Ask a trusted Christian friend
- Look in a concordance
- Online: type a word into Bible Gateway's topical concordance or their keyword search or look up a passage in one of their commentaries.
- Online God’s Yellow Pages offers a short list of passages related to emotions, virtues, and life problems.
