Be Aware Of Dangerous Teachings!

Jesus and Paul warned believers to be aware of the dangerous teachings of religious teachers because it would damage the spiritual lives of believers (Matthew 16:8-12).

The teachers of their day were teachers of the Old Covenant of Law who refused to embrace the New Covenant of Grace, and they were also those who mixed the covenants together.

They were teachers who weighed the people down with more and more religious activities to perform if they were to be accepted by God.

Jesus was never enough.

Belief was never enough.

Grace was never enough for these dangerous teachers.

Actually, they saw grace as an obstacle to spiritual growth

In our day, we must heed the warning of Jesus and Paul.

There are many, many Pastors, if not most, who do not fully embrace the New Covenant of Grace.

They mix the covenants together and consistently take verses out of context to fit their sermons and agenda, thus creating a set of doctrines or principles that are unbiblical.

They add more and more to their never ending religious to do list.

Pastors are just men.

They are men on a stage with a Bible in their hands, positioning themselves before their church members as those who understand the Bible.

This does not mean they understand the Bible.

Even if they are Pastors of churches who teach book by book and verse by verse through the Bible, be careful...I have been in these churches and have watched Pastors totally miss the point of the verse and book, even though they were teaching verse by verse and book by book.

Everything they teach should be evaluated by the word of God.

Be careful who you allow to influence your spiritual health.

Find Bible teachers and Pastors who do not mix the covenants but who teach fully the New Covenant of Grace.

Find those who do not take verses out of context.

Find those who truly understand the book of the Bible they are teaching rather than using the book to prop up their sermon series, communciate principles and "take aways", and further their agenda.

Find those who teach you to rest in the finished work of Jesus, rather than those who teach you must do more.

Find pastors who teach you are fully forgiven forever by God, continually in fellowship with God, totally righteous before God, not condemned by God, at peace with God, free from the Ten Commandments, and are indwelt by the Spirit of God where you call God your loving Father.

Find those who teach you to live by the Spirit of Jesus in you, who guides you in life and brings peace to your mind (Romans 8:6-8).

Find those who teach your guilt was paid for by Jesus, rather than those who make you feel guilty because you...

...aren't doing enough,

...aren't committed enough,

...aren't devoted enough,

...aren't worshipping passionately enough,

...aren't singing enthusiastically enough,

...aren't practicing your spiritual disciplines enough,

...aren't fasting enough, praying enough, serving enough, attending enough, participating enough, giving enough...

...the list goes on.

Be aware of those who call on you to be more committed, more devoted, more involved, and more passionate.

Be aware of those who teach you that you are saved by grace, yet you must follow the Ten Commandments as a guide for your life (the Spirit of Christ in you is your guide - Galatians 5:18).

Little do they know that seeking to follow the Ten Commandments as a guide will increase sin in the life of believers (Romans 5:20; 7:7-24), causing mental torment in their minds (Romans 8:6-8).

Be aware of those who teach you that you must continually confess your sins for forgiveness so you can stay forgiven and in fellowship (close to and in right relationship) with God.

Be aware of these Pastors.

They are dangerous to your spiritual health and will stunt your spiritual growth.
