False doctrine has made its way into many congregations of the people of God. Whether the role of women or proper church music or baptism or church organization, error has blossomed among the people of God at an alarming rate and in troublesome ways. Why should the people of God reject false doctrine? Here are five reasons:
Jesus hates false doctrine (Revelation 2:6).
Why would I choose to love or follow something my Lord hates?
False doctrine cheats one of the prize (Colossians 2:8).
Why would I choose to love or follow something that will keep me from the prize of eternal life?
We can be carried away by false doctrine (Hebrews 13:9).
Why would I choose to love or follow something that will carry me away from the Lord I love?
False doctrine is destructive (2 Peter 2:1).
Why would I choose to love or follow something that will destroy me in the end?
False doctrine will cause one to be lost (1 Timothy 4:16).
Yes, false doctrine will cause my soul to be lost in the end. Why would I choose to love or follow something that will cause me to spend an eternity separated from God?
Yes, false doctrine is dangerous. False doctrine is playing with fire. False doctrine will destroy the church. False doctrine will destroy you in the end. Do not give heed to false doctrine! Tomorrow, we’ll explore ways to keep from following false doctrine. Until then, God bless!
