Now the works off the flesh are evident, which are: dissensions. Galatians 5:20

 

    Since we have already covered contentions I will combine along with this work of the flesh a major reason for discord in the body of Christ, heresy. The definition of heresy from the Greek means, a choice, simply to choose, either the word of God or choose to believe a false doctrine or teaching, in any case heresy plagued the New Testament believers!

 

    Jesus warned that there would be many false prophets and teachers and so there have been ever since the beginning of time. Today the air waves are full of poisonous and deadly teaching, dangerous cults, sects and deceptive heresies polluting the gospel of Jesus Christ and dividing the body of Christ into hundreds of denominations. The apostle Paul warned the Galatians as well as many of the other fledgling churches that false teachers would infiltrate their fellowships and distort the word of God!

 

    My advise to you today is to be very careful and check out who you listen to (including me) and be open to Holy Spirit's voice who will warn you of false prophets and teachers and when you are not sure, dig deeper and ask God for discernment and see if what you are listening to lines up with God's word, the plumb-line for all sound doctrine!

 

    But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. II Peter 2:1
