Top 10 Responses To Anyone Daring To Point Out False Teachers And Teachings

Having been in the ministry of pointing out false teachers and their false teachings for close to a year now (most of it is on my old blog which I am hoping to port over soon), I have come across some pretty standard responses in the comments of those who say I, and others like myself, have no business doing so.

So I thought, why not do up a Top 10 list of the most common responses to our posts on these false teachers and their teachings? My wife thought it was a good idea, and I’ve also mentioned this to Carol and a new friend I made, John, just this morning over Skype. I hope we can get together to compile our responses to these accusations soon.

Anyhow, since our response to their allegations will be some time coming, here’s my Top 10 list in the meantime. The list is by no means exhaustive, so please feel free to add yours from your experience in dealing with such comments.

10. Touch not God’s anointed! Pastor so-and-so is very much anointed by God!

09. And how many souls did you yourself save this week? Pastor so-and-so had 2,000 conversions just last weekend. Have you ever been able to reach that many yourself?!

08. Quit criticizing preachers and pastors. Get a life with God, man!

07. You’re nothing but a Pharisee/Sadducee.

06. Who are you to judge?! Judge not lest you be judged!

05. Are you a pastor yourself? Any theological training? If not, how dare you think you are interpreting the Bible correctly?

04. Hey! Don’t quench the Spirit!

03. No church or pastor or congregation is perfect, so why nitpick?

02. God wants to bless us financially, with good health and a great life. If you yourself aren’t claiming these promises, don’t be jealous of others!

And the number one response…

Can’t we all just agree to disagree and get along?

  1. GO GET SOME!

    Sorry, couldn’t help that. That’s just one response I’ve seen.

    I just think, get some what? Demon possession?

    Let them alone They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.’ Matthew 15v14.

    It’s obvious neither these leaders nor their followers are not of God, for the word of God says if possible they would deceive the elect, Matthew 24v24.

    God keep us from being deceived. That is possible if we are God’s elect.

    God bless.

  2. How about this one?

    “Don’t put God in your small theological
    box!”

  3. I totally forgot that one, Libby. Thank you for reminding me!

  4. Along the same lines with Doreen:

    “Jesus said if anybody wasn’t against Him, they were with Him!!! This man is doing a work of GAWD!!!! Do my prophet no harm!!!”

    etc, etc, ad nauseum

  5. Hey Guys,

    I heard one cat say, “We are here to feed them not fatten them!”

    I never figured out it if he meant physically or spiritually?

  6. “You are an idolator. You worship the Bible, instead of God.” (I get this one a lot when I quote or point out Scripture.)

    I also get called a “Baptist” (which I am) like it’s the worst thing under the sun (which it’s not).

  7. Am I the only one who hears Paul Washer saying in response to number six, “And twist not Scripture lest you be like SATAN!”

  8. Oh, yeah! We’ve heard a lot of these, as well! And to number 5, as Desert Pastor is a pastor, we still hear something to the effect that we have to remember (as a pastor and pastor’s wife, mind you) that they have had a hard life so we need to cut them some slack! Of course, we heard the most judge not lest you be judged! How indicative of man’s depraved heart!

    ” For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4.

  9. Concerning judging, let’s look at this scripture in John 7v24, ‘Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.’

    Also, let’s look at what the apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 5v3, ‘For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already JUDGED (as though I were present) him who has done this deed.

    Paul’s not even there, but has judged this incident.

    You don’t have to be in a place to judge something, or someone.

    I’ve gone off topic. Sorry.

    God bless.
