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

“Be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you through an empty, deceitful philosophy that is according to human traditions and the elemental spirits of the world, and not!, according, to Christ.…” (Colossians 2:8) Scripture is quite black and white on this subject. If a teaching or… as we are studying here… a philosophy is not according to Christ it is, at the very least, empty and deceitful.

The New-Age and Inter-Faith movements are both influential and plausible systems of philosophy. They are apparently correct and true. They are deceptively attractive in the appearance of their logic, reasoning, and presentation. Even more so with charismatic or very well known and popular people presenting such philosophy.

The New-Age movement is not according to Christ. The Inter-Faith movement is not according to Christ. Nor are any other such philosophies, not according to Christ, and the Bible. However, the Inter-Faith movement, especially, sounds very much like a religious order, even though it is not by any means according to Christ. The Inter-Faith Movement embraces a grave and dangerous form of cherry picking of philosophies and teachings.

We have to ask the question… How is it the New-Age movement, the Inter-Faith movement, is better at teaching similar sounding principles than the church is at teaching true and sound Biblical principles? Do you see better, why Paul is so strong in his warnings? Why commentary, last week said, we need to be more wary of the subtle seducer?! This is how clever those who are not according to Christ are.

We have to note what commentary says here. “Having no need, for the purposes of salvation, of any aid to be derived from the philosophy of the Greeks, or the traditions of the Jews.”. In today’s world we could read that this way, “Having no need, for the purposes of salvation, of any aid to be derived from the philosophy of the [New-Age Movement or The Inter-Faith Movement], or the traditions of those who are not according to Christ.”.

I hope you can see the chain of events. First comes false and enticing teaching. Then we are exposed to the false philosophies such teaching comes from. Then, it leads to the sins of which!, we were once forgiven in our Salvation conversion. Those things of which, in Christ we are, in Him, sanctified. Is Christ your life?

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