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

From 2 Timothy 2:16-17 in part, “[16] But avoid profane chatter, because those occupied with it will stray further and further into ungodliness,  [17] and their message will spread its infection like gangrene.”

There are to many churches that prefer to disregard the 2 Timothy 2:16-17 advise and exhortation to avoid such vain conversation. This is the sort of language that tears down and does not build up. What is the encouragement and exhortation of scripture in general? We are to be about building up and not, about tearing down. This is another part of how the church has lost its perceived relevance. However, more to the point how the salt has lost its savor.

Profane chatter does not have to sound obvious. It can be well crafted to sound sweet and deliberately designed to beguile the hearer in the most subtle way and form. We know that from our previous episodes in this series. It can have sweet and subtle qualities to it of which, we are more strongly warned. This is due to its more stealthy qualities. We do not see it coming until it is to late and… sometimes we never!, see it!

How do we properly identify the subtle seducer, how do we properly identify false teaching, how do we properly identify false philosophy if we cannot even properly identify the things of God?! The things of God are our only comparative for identifying false prophets, false teachers and what they teach. So it is incumbent of us to know, with great strength, the things of God so we properly know what is not of God.

As identified clearly in 2 Timothy 2:18, Hymenaeus and Philetus were teaching the resurrection for the end of the age as having already transpired. It would seem, by the time this false teaching found its way into Corinth, it had changed greatly to there being no resurrection at all! That would leave us today well past the millennial reign of Christ. Satan, the Anti-Christ, and the beast are already, and long ago!, eternally locked up in the Lake of Fire. The New Jerusalem has descended to earth and Christ is in His perfect and eternal rule. If this is all true… then we are living in some ghetto of the new dispensation!.

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