2What is Spiritual Error? Elevating human reasoning above God's Word.
3False Teachings That Lead To Spiritual Error There are many sincere and well-meaning people who are teaching a false gospel. Some have added to the message, resulting in legalism, or have deleted essential parts of the gospel, such as the Lordship of Christ or repentance. Paul addressed the problem of the false gospel to the Galatian church.
4False teachings that lead to spiritual error: 1. False GospelI am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel - which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. Galatians 1:6-7There are many sincere and well-meaning people who are teaching a false gospel. Some have added to the message, resulting in legalism, or have deleted essential parts of the gospel, such as the Lordship of Christ or repentance. Paul addressed the problem of the false gospel to the Galatian church.
5False teachings that lead to spiritual error: 2. Unbiblical TeachingBut I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached…you put up with it easily enough. 2 Corinthians 11:3-4There have been many unbiblical teachings about Jesus throughout history. Some have so focused on his divinity that they have rejected his humanity. Others have gone to the opposite extreme, teaching that Jesus was just a good teacher. To avoid spiritual error, we must base our teaching about the life, person, and work of Christ on God's written word.
