How can we tell a false teacher from one who tells the truth? Can Christians be false teachers?
A site reader says that he’s met a lot of nasty, bigoted people who call themselves “Christians” who can quote Scripture. Well, we agree that there are a lot of people out there like that. Conversely, there are many nasty, bigoted people out there who hate Christ with a passion. Some of the people who claim the title of “Christian” don’t really follow Christ. Others do. We cannot judge Christianity based on the actions of sinful people.
If God’s grace is enough for us to be saved, why does Hebrews 12:14 say that we must pursue holiness with all people and be holy in order to see the Lord?
At times we see in Scripture that God seems to condone torture. But then God also says He loves everyone and wants everyone to experience His mercy. So which is it? Is torture ever justified? Are there certain situations in which it’s the right thing to do? Or is torture always an evil act?
We had a very zealous reader write us and tell us that Calvinism was wrong. And he felt strongly that he should be standing up and fighting this distortion of the truth. We agree that standing up against false teachers is important. But if errant theology a false teacher makes, then we’re all false teachers–none of has our theology perfectly straight. Check out our latest article addressing the issue of how to deal with other Christians when our theology differs from theirs.
