FALSE TEACHERS 1

2 Pet 2:1

But there arose false prophets also among the people, as among you also there shall be false teachers, who shall privily bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master that bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.

Some doctrines came into the church in West Africa about three years ago. These doctrines brought up an ‘updated’ form of Christian conduct; no emphasis was made on the person of Christ and total faith in Him being the key to avoiding hell. All the emphasis was on works and things women wear that would take them to hell. Many homes were broken because of these doctrines. I remember the story of a couple who almost separated because the wife started dressing in a way that was repulsive to her Christian husband who didn't share in her new convictions. Some entire churches were thrown into confusion.

Heresies are always destructive and not constructive to the body of Christ; they usually attempt to shift the focus from Christ to laws.

Before Apostle Peter started talking about false teachers (in today's text), he first established that no scripture has a secret interpretation and that we should look upon them (not experiences or visions) for our light and guidance (see 2Pet 2: 19-20).

Go into today knowing that the scriptures are a guide for any revelation or doctrine that comes to you. If it is not properly based on scripture or if it contradicts scriptural precedence and principles, it is not to be accepted.

Prayer: Thank you father because your word is the standard for my life. Please give me grace to diligently study and know your word that I may never be deceived, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
