The cure to the problem of false teaching in churches is clear. We must stand strong in the TRUTH of God’s Word and not allow anyone, whether from inside or outside, of our churches to teach false doctrine. That includes worship songs, Bible study curriculum, denominational programs and literature – anything that is not true.

The cure to the problem is clear, but it is not easy. It’s not easy to stand up to church leaders or a congregation of family and friends and call out false teaching for what it is – false, not true.

False teaching is often deceptive and challenging to point out to others in your church. They may not see it the way you do. That’s why we need to good students of the Word, ready to teach others the truth. Many of the people we see Sundays in church “will not endure sound doctrine.” Many of them will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to fables. We need to be ready to help them. We will need to be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, use our spiritual gifts, and fulfill the ministry God has given us.
