THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on The First Epistle of St. John the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

4:1 Try the spirits: Viz., by examining whether their teaching be agreeable to the rule of the Catholic faith, and the doctrine of the church. For as he says, (ver. 6,) He that knoweth God, heareth us [the pastors of the church]. By this we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
