We shouldn’t make fun of those who don’t agree with what we believe (“scoff at prophecies”), but we should always “test everything,” checking their words against the Bible.
We are on dangerous ground if we scoff at a person who speaks the truth. Instead we should carefully check out what people say, accepting what is true and rejecting what is false.
Do not scoff at prophecies,21 but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good. – 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21
