Let me begin with a story.
A certain Wolf could not get enough to eat. But one night he found a sheep skin that had been cast aside and forgotten. The next day, dressed in the skin, the Wolf strolled into the pasture with the Sheep. Soon a little Lamb was following him about and was quickly led away to slaughter…”
Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” Matthew 7:15
In today’s article I want to bring to your attention 3 most common false teachings, that haunt the modern Church. I chose to write this article, for knowing what is wrong and what is right can help you to avoid the spiritual wolves we encounter in our Christian walk.
False teaching #1: The Bible is inaccurate and fallible
Most of the contemporary Christian cults claim the Bible is inaccurate and fallible. They use a text book in addition to the Bible that they say is the correct revelation of God. “Among these cults are Mormons or Latter day saints and The witnesses of Jehovah”
The Bible cannot be wrong because it is the inspired word of God. The Bible itself bears witness towards this.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16
For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21
False teaching #2: Jesus is not God
Jesus is not in same essence with God. He is little lower. He was created. Mormons even teach that Mary had sex with God and conceived Jesus. Jesus’ second coming has already taken place as He visited the earth in spirit years ago.
The truth is that Jesus is fully God and fully human. The scriptures declare That He was born through a virgin who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31; Luke 1:35) and His deity (John 1:1-3),
False teaching #3: The Holy Spirit is a force not a personal being.
Some Christian sects teach that the Holy Spirit is not a personal being but just the working force of God. This is not so.
The Bible says that the Holy Spirit has personal attributes.
1. He searches and has knowledge
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11
2. The Holy Spirit distributes gifts as He wills.
But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 1 Corinthians 12:11
3. The Holy Spirit has a mind.
And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:27
4. The Holy Spirit loves us.
Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; Romans 15:30
In this short article I have addressed 3 of the most common false teaching that sweep the world today. There are so much more that I cannot cover all of them through a blog article. However take the above to your heart. Teach them to others. So that you will be able to many others who are likely to be mislead.
