The Danger of False Teachers
But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. - 2 Peter 2:1-2
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. - 1 John 4:1-2
We know false teaching is out there, but how can we identify it and avoid wrong theology? When we know God's Word well, false teaching will jump out at us. Anything that does not agree with scripture is in the wrong.
Father, my desire to learn You Word well, so that I remain faithful to Your teaching.
