Warnings Against False Teachings
My brothers and sisters in Christ, I want to share with you the Word of God, and the warnings against false teachings.
4. And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
5. For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
6. As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7. Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
There are many people out there that claim to be teachers and preachers of the Word of God. Some have the power of talking, and they have the power of persuading someone through the power of words. That’s why we, as Christians, should be rooted and built up in Him, through the power of prayer and daily reading of His Word. There are true teachers of God, and there are some proclaiming to be teachers of God. Be vigilant and mature in the faith to not get caught up in false teachings and things not of God.
