The Virus of False Doctrines

1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NET) Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the later times some will desert the faith and occupy themselves with deceiving spirits and demonic teachings, influenced by the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared.

Sheldon started attending a church in which they said that "sins don't take people to hellfire, it is refusing to believe in Jesus that takes people to hell". Even though that statement sounds harmless, it is very dangerous because apart from being an unnecessary statement, it is simply a tool in the quiver of those who teach doctrines that make believers comfortable in besetting sins. Sheldon observed that his love for God started waxing cold as he continued to attend that church. He later discovered that the pastors in that church were very immoral and godless. 

There are certain doctrines that have become popular in some circles that the first time I heard about them, I found it difficult to understand how believers would actually believe such teachings. 

The sad fact about what today's Bible verses reveal is that those who accept these false doctrines would not know that they have denied the faith. They are such who say it is impossible for that to happen. 

When you see supposed believers following false doctrines and 'glorying in their shame', don't be rattled by their actions but remember that it is one of the signs of the latter times.

Go into today remembering that in these latter times, false doctrines would abound. Remember that the fact that a teacher is quoting scriptures does not mean he is saying the truth. When the devil was tempting Jesus, he too was quoting scriptures. Know that any doctrine that directly or indirectly trivializes sin is a false doctrine. 

Prayer: Father, please guard me against the virus of false doctrines in Jesus' name. Amen.
