How to Spot False Teachers

False shepherds talk much about God’s love, but not His wrath and holiness;

much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity;

much about God’s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son;

much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him;

much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice.

Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical view of the saving gospel.
