Contending For The Faith

False Teachings in the New Testament

Ephesians 4:13-15
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ--

Error is nothing new. Consider this quote of Oswald Chambers:

The error of the past on the part of religious teaches has been to present God as a great sovereign power who utilizes humanity without rhyme or reasons.

The present error is the opposite, namely, that God is a great aimless, loving tendency that humanity utilizes to forgive itself, to cleanse itself, and to justify itself.

The quote is very accurate, but the real point is that there has always been error and false teachers. All false teachers strip God of His glory, majesty, dominion, authority, justice, and holiness. There is nothing new about any of Jude&s warnings and concerns. They applied before Christ, during the time of Christ, during the time of the writing of the New Testament, and continue right to the present time.
