When storms and hurricanes are approaching, many warnings of danger have gone out, but some pay no attention or take a chance and are killed.
Jesus established His church. He issued many warnings about dangers of false teachers who would lead, people astray: “Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves.” Again, “Many false prophets shall arise and lead many astray” (Mt. 7:15; 245: 11-12). “I know that after my departing grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things …wherefore watch.”
Paul spoke this warning to the elders of the church (Acts 20:29-31). He warned Timothy that some would “fall away from the faith” (I Tim 4:1) Also see Peter’s caution about false teachers (II Peter 2:1-2), and John’s (I Jn 4:1; II Jn 9-10).
It is no surprise therefore to see false teachers arise among us giving trouble and division, so we must be on guard. Our phone book lists hundreds of different names and creeds that separate and divide. For more on this, contact us now.
