"There Will Be False Teachers Among You"

2 Peter 2:1-3 contains a serious and sobering warning. “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”

How should we look at this passage of Scripture, and so many others like it? This 2-part series examines this difficult topic. What is the essential element that makes a doctrine “false”? How is the qualifying word “false” used in the Old and New Testaments? What if we are dealing with someone in doctrinal error who is sincere in what they believe and teach? And does it matter how we come across as Christians in the midst of controversy?
