“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid .
For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”- Romans 16: 17-18.
In the apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans, he wrote the above quoted admonition to the Church at Rome.

False Teachers: Beware Of Them
We need to be careful! We should not forget that the devil can also masquerade himself as an angel light. Be watchful!
What we need to note here is this, for any true teaching of Christ, there will always be a counterfeit.
Anytime you hear the true teaching of God’s Word, the devil will also send some people to pollute your mind.
And make you deny true teaching that you have received with joy before.
Again, we must not just get excited about the truth we have found in God’s Word.
But we should purpose in our hearts never to leave the truth, for teaching that sounds nice and promising but contradicts the Scriptures.
Whatever varies from the form of sound doctrine which we have in the Bible opens a way of divisions and offence.
Therefore, Our responsibility is to hold on to the true teaching, deny any teaching that contradicts the scriptures.
And intentionally avoid those people who spread false teachings.
Shun all necessary communion and communication with the propagators of false teachings.

Don’t be found associating yourself with them in anyway. If you stay around them for too long, you may be tempted to see their false teaching as true teaching.
People who are bent on teaching false gospel are cunning and very dangerous to move with because they will affect you negatively.
Avoidance Is The Best Gift They Deserve
Now, the best gift you can give to a false teacher of prophet is avoidance.
If you have been going before them before, stop going. That’s the gift they deserve.
I say to you avoid those who cause divisions and offense in the body of Christ.
Avoid those who say you do not need to pray anymore, that only what you need is Holiness.
It’s true we need to be holy but God never said we should stop praying(1 Thess 5:17).
Nevertheless, we should keep on praying, no matter our level of holiness. Those who spread false teaching should be excused from our lives.
Excommunicate preachers of divisions and war who never wants peace to reign among ministers of the gospel.
Those people are there to look for what to eat not because they really want to serve the Lord.
Do not allow yourself to be lured away from the truth of God’s Word by smooth talk, flattery and fair speeches of those propagators of falsehood.
Study The Word
Be a stickler for the Word. Do not be quick to accept the teaching that you have not check its foundation in God’s Word.
Hear the Word, pray and check the Word for yourself.
Be like the Berean Church who would examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
