This week we’re looking at how to discern false teaching. Yesterday we learned to compare everything we hear against God’s Word. But we can also look at the fruit a teaching produces. The Apostle Paul tells us that false teachers cause divisions.
Their teaching doesn’t bring unity or point people toward a greater love for Christ. Instead, it causes disunity and division within the body of Christ. Why? Because their teaching isn’t centered around God’s Word. It’s based on their own opinions! And the natural result is division.
Division for the wrong reasons comes from error. True unity is based on God’s Word.
