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

This week, in 1 John we will examine a “Warning About False Teachers”.  From 1 John 2:18, “Children, it is the last hour, and just as you heard that the Antichrist is coming, so now many Antichrists have appeared. We know from this that it is the last hour.”. Hence… The warning! Does this mean that false teachers are in fact… antichrists? 

We have reference here that there are two forms of Antichrist. T-H-E Antichrist and many little antichrists. The commonality in both forms is the denial of Jesus being the Christ. Also, the denial of Jesus coming in the flesh. Both of these forms are found in T-H-E Antichrist. Both, commonly lie about The Father, The Son, sometimes The Holy Spirit, and many scriptures.

“…by confounding both, denies that there are either Father or Son; and all such persons are antichrists, or opposers of Christ.” (FROM: The New John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible)

It would seem at this point that, some distinction between false teachers and what John is calling antichrists is emerging, better defining the two. False Teachers are not necessarily antichrists. However, they can grow into an antichrist. Antichrists, however they arrive to this state, are definitely false teachers!

To be clear, lying about Jesus not being the Christ and not have come in the flesh is very close to the unforgivable sin since it could also be said of the Holy Spirit given the impressively profound oneness of the Holy Trinity! It is also, very realistic, that one who thinks and teaches that Jesus is not the Christ and not come in the flesh is a type of liar who is A-N-T-I … Christ, and as such, an antichrist after the one and only. Such are liars of significant proportion and spreading the “gangrene” of 2 Timothy 2:16-17 in part.

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