Daily Verse: “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.” (2 Peter 2:1 ESV)

PSEUDODIDAS (5572): “A spurious teacher, i.e. propagator of erroneous Chr. Doctrine: false teacher.”[1]

Propagator of erroneous

False teachers promote lies, and in today’s world, many exist.  People who don’t believe in God or rebel against Him will do and say anything to get you off track.  Their lies slide by so subtly that you hardly notice.  One seed planted can lead you down the wrong path.

The best way to stay alert to the lies of others happens when you focus on Jesus.  Instead of figuring out other people’s tall tales, focus on understanding God’s word well.  The better you know Christ, the quicker He reveals the lies.

Solid truth.

When you know something so well, you can easily spot when something doesn’t line up.  My young farming friend in Delaware can identify the different fields as we drive by because she knows them so intimately, but they all look the same to my untrained eye.  She can spot what I can’t.

In the same way, when we know Jesus so intimately, the false prophets become apparent.  And God gives us the Holy Spirit to guide us from within, helping us discern the truth.  The closer we follow Jesus, the more sensitive we become to His Spirit, and the more readily we’ll recognize the lies.

Only Jesus saves; no other god can do what ours does.  People worship many things, but only one true God exists.  Anything else will inevitably fail.  Staying tuned into Christ will expose the false teachers in your life.

Make truth a priority by spending time each day with Christ.  Apply God’s teachings to your life, and trust in His word.  With Jesus as your foundation, you will find solid ground that stands the test of time, breaking down all falsities and exposing the truth.
