Fallen Teachers become False Teachers – 2 Peter 2

We've been looking at some of the characteristics of False Teachers in recent studies. This evening I'd like to point out something the Bible says about them which should cause us all to take heed, especially if any of us are in any sense Bible teachers or teachers of the people of God.

Will lip service to the Blood of Jesus cause False Teachers to Escape Judgement?

There are lots of different kinds of false teachings around in the world today. There are teachings like Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses and other cults which add to and subtract from the Word of God in order to create a new religious empire. There are really off-base occult philosophical systems like Theosophy, Rosicrucianism and the smorgasbord of various New Age systems including Hinduism and Buddism which some people select ideas from in order to construct their own personal belief system. All these things take people away from Jesus Christ.

The Bible says that False Teachers are going to have a big following! 2 Peter 2:2

2Pe 2:1  But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

2Pe 2:2  And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

 

Watch Out for False Teachers! 2 Peter 2:1

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 Peter 2:1 (KJV)

Even in the early church, when the apostles were still alive,  there were false teachers. How much more today, when there is so much disagreement and confusion in the Body of Christ!

HOW GREAT is THAT DARKNESS – by Coach Dave Daubenmire

“But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness” -Matthew 6:23

Are you Interested in Eternal Rewards?

There's no doubt in my mind that Jesus Christ calls all his followers today to a life of self-denial, however its important to realize that this is not self-denial for the sake of self-denial.

Just as an athlete denies himself many enjoyable things over a period of time in order to be the best and hopefully win a gold medal and enjoy the rewards that will follow, so we are called to self-denial with a view to ETERNAL REWARDS that will most certainly follow.

Victory over Sin

 

From “Catch the Glorious Fire” by Ps Paul Quadros – Chapter 29

In
order to increase the fire of the Holy Spirit in our lives we must
become overcomers, especially in the areas of sin and temptations.
We must be extremely careful not to quench the flow of the Spirit in
our lives (Eph 4:29-30). As faith and love gradually grow in our
lives, so also the fire of revival must increase and spread
everywhere.

Personal Revival Manual – Catch the Glorious Fire

This book was written by Paul Quadros, a man of God who has been involved in church planting, pastoring and evangelism for many years. He has been a senior elder within the vast New Life Movement International Trust in Mumbai churches. Having known Paul closely and personally I would highly recommend his ministry and writings. He is someone who has demonstrated great love for God, for people, for the church and for lost souls and has a wealth of experience in serving others.

Paul can be contacted by email on paulquadros @[email protected] gmail DOT com. Just get rid of the [email protected]

Joseph Prince says turning from sin not necessary for justification or forgiveness

You can used to be able to hear yourself what Joseph Prince teaches about the gospel and what he calls pure, uncluttered Christianity in the video at http://www.youtube.com/v/10lue7bhcK0. Obviously someone in his huge web team made sure the video came down, and as well as that someone was doing negative SEO on this page. But I have made a partial transcription below so you can save yourself a few minutes watching the video if you want to.
