    The following is not exhaustive, because, no doubt, other factors may come into play that would clearly identify a person as a false teacher (like a homosexual teacher, or an adulterer who is a teacher, or a female pastor, 1 Timothy 2:11-14; 1 Corinthians 14:34-37; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10). But, here are seven identifying marks from Scripture. If any one of these points can honestly describe a man, that they are characteristic of his life, any one of these alone marks him as false. This is not to say that these marks stand alone, that is, that a man would have only one mark and not any others. But, for the sake of simplicity and to help in identification, one mark is all it takes.

    Are you not capable of any original thought on your own? Are are you simply going to advertise your site on this board by cutting and pasting?

    Deceit,

    You know, I think I'd be careful about advertising that site too much. It's going to decrease your credibility about 90% in anything else you say!

    Exhaustive... maybe not

    Exhausting... absolutely :D

    Went to the website... is there anyone who isn't a false teacher other than yourself? :D

    According to your website, the Early Church Fathers were Catholic and that is the basis for labeling them as false teachers.

    Because the teachings of the Church for the first 300 years don't match your beliefs, that makes them wrong?

    Interesting logic. :rolleyes:

    BTW, you know that no one is going to actually read your oppressively long and tedious posts, don't you?

    Well, the substance is what is important. There are many false teachers out there and we should be exposing them.

    Now I have noticed there are many Catholics around here...correct me if I wrong, but this is a Baptist board? Protestant right? Anyhow, I don't feel compelled to prove that Catholicism is a false religion and full of heresy. That has been made clear many times before by many others.

    In His love,

    That was YOU, Ed?

    No deceit, the members her are correct. Most people will not read any posts taller than their monitor screen. Please use a link when it suffices.

    Thank you.

    OK, so let me ask you the questions:

    1. What makes someone a false teacher?
    2. Should we expose them?

    A false teacher:

    is someone who denies that they have been resurrected from the dead with the spirit of Christ "within them" that the father has given them.

    not their own original carnal spirit that they were physically born with as a baby.

    but a brand spankin new righteous and resurrected spirit that has proven to its owner (us) to be more powerful than death itself. the "spirit of Christ"

    not someone who dreams or imagines of a person that (might have) lived on the planet 2000 years ago along with 100 million other guys called john.

    but "living proof" that the "spirit of Jesus Christ" has been resurrected From death and now resides "within" us.

    that is abiding in the "doctrine of christ".

    an easy way of detecting a false teacher is observing them standing in the way of any human being and God. in any form.

    by denying the mercy and forgiveness of God to any human being until their non spirit existence.
    (which is never)

    1Ti 2:5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    abiding in the "doctrine of Christ" means resting in the intimate knowledge of Christ "in you". the "Living Hope" that is "in you".

    Some say we physically have to die to Go to heaven. To see Jesus. sorry thats incorrect.

    Heaven is "in us" in the form of Our new spirit. the "us in God, and God in us".

    We dont Go anywhere to get to heaven.
    We're already there.

    Heaven is revealed to us by the knowledge of Being "in Christ" and "Christ in You".

    My advise (IMHO) after reading this article.

    be careful if they preach any form of eternal seperation between God and any man, woman or child.

    thats antichrist.

    it is false teaching that concerns the "limited mercy" and "limited forgiveness" of Christ.
    and also if they teach that mans influence (will) is greater than Gods influence (will).
    thats impossible. God ALWAYS wins.
