Some people are used to multiple-choice
tests. Certain questions do have more than one answer, while some do not. In
the field of religion, many feel that there are multiple answers to the above
question asked by this “certain ruler.”

1) Do Your Own Thing
— The humanist philosophy promotes this idea since every man is his own god.
Beware! These undermining heresies are being taught in our schools, our
colleges and in many, many churches in our country. They are also being taught
in too many Bible classes.
2) Follow Men’s Doctrines
— The plural “men’s” is used to emphasize the plurality of doctrines, all

brethren in Galatia:
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;
for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh

Spirit reap everlasting life” ( Gal.
We will either obey God’s salvation
plan and be saved, or we will reject His salvation plan and be lost ( Romans
2:1-13 ). We have no multiple choice for
