This week we’re studying “the ASK method” for discerning truth from error. Today we’re on the last letter, “K”—for knowledge. Is the claim someone is making confirmable?
You see, there’s a big difference between data and interpretation. When we hear a truth claim, we need to evaluate the interpretation to see if it’s consistent with the evidence. How do they know what they claim to know?
For example, if someone appeals to science as the basis for their knowledge, is it confirmable observational science or is it speculative science about the unseen past?
And always remember—if a claim contradicts what the Bible clearly teaches, we can be certain it’s false.
