Sermons on False Teachers
John 10:1-10 There are two kinds of teachers that Jesus contrasts in this figurative picture. There are true shepherds who love and care for the sheep, and there are false shepherds, robbers, who are there for the good of self. How do we tell them apart?
Matthew 7:15-20 False teachers are to be expected to rise up in the church, but how do we discern a true teacher from a false teacher?
Gal. 5:7-12 Believers, led by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, will respond to the truth and correction, while false teachers and false converts will continue toward judgement.
Galatians 4:12-20. Paul presents a passionate plea for these believers to return to truth and freedom which is our in Christ.
Galatians 3:6-9. Paul moves on in his defense of justification by faith alone to an example from the scriptures, the ultimate example of Abraham himself.
