Good vs. Evil
The Discipline of Discernment

Many Christians assume that “discernment” is some mystical gift, only given to hermits living on mountaintops. Discernment, they think, is something that can’t be defined. It’s a feeling. An intuition. An inner sense. It has something to do with having a special “in” with God. To know things. Or know about things. Or whatever. Certainly, it’s not for the regular churchgoer. Elders and pastors and such should “have discernment,” but it’s not for the person in the pew.

That is a lie of the devil. Discernment is not some vague “inner sense,” nor is it a mystical gift. Discernment is the ability to recognize good and evil, and it is a spiritual discipline. In this 4-lesson study, you will learn practical tools that you can put into use every day to sharpen your edge when it comes to the battle between good and evil.
