Welcome to our new Summer Series ~ “False Prophets, False Teachers, False Teaching”.

“I say this so that no one will deceive you through arguments that sound reasonable.” (Colossians 2:4) Therein, today is the cleverness and subtlety of today’s False Prophets and Teachers.

“We are in greater danger from the subtle seducer, than we are from the fiery persecutor; sophistical arguments, and insinuating persuasions, captivate those persons whom violence could never have brought over to their party;” (FROM: Burkitt’s Expository Notes)

I would suggest that phrase “…for the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful to God in order to pull down strongholds,…”, is in reference to False Philosophies. Thoughts, individual thoughts are not strongholds. It is when many thoughts form a philosophy that is not scriptural and not for the building of the body of Christ that this type of stronghold is formed.

Even if you are not new to the faith, false teachings and philosophies have an enticing quality to them. One can even have the thought that they will expand your faith for the better. I believe this is just one thing of many, Paul is addressing in the next passage. Why we are so strongly warned.

Commentary reads: “Continue in those views of Christ; live in the maintenance of them; let them regulate your whole conduct. The word walk, in the Scriptures, is used to denote the manner of life; and the sense here is, that they should live and act wholly under the influence of the conceptions which they had of the Savior when they first!, embraced him.” (FROM: Barnes’ New Testament Notes)

How hard and far we fall when we allow ourselves to be swayed by false teachings and philosophies. Commentary said, we are despoiled; we are robbed of the rich treasure of the Gospel; we are stripped of our armor like one branded from a worldly army; the truths and doctrines of Christ are taken away from us; we divest ourselves from our spiritual privileges and blessings. Do you see how hard and far we fall when we succumb to false teaching and philosophy?

We hope you find this study most instructive. Get your sharp pencil, paper and Bible out! Then click Play!
