Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, April 2018
The April issue of Tabletalk addresses the topic of false teaching. From the beginning of church history, God’s people have had to deal with the threat of false teaching. One reason the Apostle John wrote 1 John was to combat the Docetic heresy. Paul confronts the Judaizing heresy in the book of Galatians, and in Acts 20:28–30, he warns that many wolves will creep into the church, speaking twisted things in order to draw disciples away from Christ and to themselves. Given the danger of false teaching, believers must be prepared to recognize its presence and guard against its infiltration. This issue considers the nature of false teaching while helping laypeople and church leaders prevent error from seeping into their churches.
