Biblical Model for Dealing with False Teachers


The more biblical model for dealing with false teachers is to publicly mark them out, warn others and flee from them:

*“They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.” *(Titus 1:16)

  • “Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.” ***(2 Peter 2:2) **

“Now I beseech you, brothers, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them.”* (Romans 16:17)

“For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” (Matthew 24:24)

“Indeed, since the entirety of Scripture is the Word of the Lord, no testimony could possibly be better, more certain or more efficacious. For if God, who cannot lie, has spoken something in His own Scripture, which is itself the mirror of His will, then it is true.” John Wycliffe
