How Do You Spot A False Teacher?

First and foremost, we need to understand and believe that the Written Word of God is the final authority on everything for  TRUE believers in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works

Second, we need to realize that NOT ALL that claim to be of God; are really of the ONLY TRUE God, Jesus Christ; but rather are from the god of this world, satan.
2 Corinthians 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.   

We are warned in 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world2 Corinthians 11:13-15  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.   

We can clearly see that satan has his own ministers that claim to preach the gospel, but are in reality preaching a false gospel.  Galatians 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ

There is a very stern warning for those that would pervert the gospel in Revelation 22:18-19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  

Don’t let satan confuse you on this verse “if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life”  because John 6:64b says... For Jesus knew “from the beginning” who they were that believed not, and who should betray Him.  The Book of Life was written and sealed before the foundation of the world.  God DOES NOT make mistakes and
John the Revelator did NOT mince words about adding to or taking away from God’s Written Word.   Make NO MISTAKE, if your name was Written in the Book of Life before the foundation of the world, it WILL REMAIN in the Book of Life.

Galatians 1:8-9  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 

How do we know which gospel is the TRUE GOSPEL?  The answer is found in
1 Corinthians 1:23-24  But WE PREACH CHRIST CRUCIFIED, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

In other words… When we preach Jesus Christ dying to save them, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.  But God has opened the eyes of those called to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, to see that Jesus Christ is the mighty power of God to save them; Christ himself is the center of God’s wise plan for their salvation. 

You may be thinking, well at my church we know that Jesus saved us; but the question is, did He really?   We just read straight from the Word of God,  “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed”.  

This should be concrete evidence for anyone that was chosen by Jesus Christ before the foundation of the world, that the doctrine that you believe really does matter. 

Ephesians 1:4-6  According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.   

Jesus spoke in parables in order that only HIS CHOSEN ELECT can understand what He is saying.  Matthew 16:6   Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.   

Matthew 16:7-10 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.  Which when Jesus perceived, He said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Matthew 16:11-12  How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?  Then understood they how that He bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees

There is leaven in the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.  What does this mean? It simply means that by leaven/yeast He meant the wrong teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.  

Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
Leaven {yeast} is what is placed in bread dough to make the bread rise. It is placed in the dough and spreads throughout the entire lump.  So a little false doctrine ruins the entire doctrine.

This is why it is so important to try the spirits.  1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.   There is no shortage of scriptures on the subject of false teachers.

  • Jeremiah 23:1  Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture! saith the LORD. 
  • Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
  • Matthew 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, “if” it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. {IT IS NOT POSSIBLE}
  • 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. 
  •  Acts 20:29  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock
  • Philippians 3:18-19 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
  • Jude 1:4  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Modern day preachers of false doctrine are glorified by multitudes of people today because people have no clue what the bible really says.  

  • Luke 6:24  But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
  • Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
  • Ezekiel 13:9  And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.   
  • Ezekiel 13:19  And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? 
  • Ezekiel 13:22-23 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:  Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 

The Prophet Jeremiah sums it all up in Jeremiah Chapter 23You can read and listen at the same time by clicking the above link and then, look to the right under Bible options, press listen.

2 Timothy 4:3-4  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Philippians 3:20   For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 John 4:4-6  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

1 Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.  1 Corinthians 2:16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
