"Deceptive Teaching"  1 Timothy 4:1-5

Every place Paul preached the gospel, soon after he left.  Someone would come along with a teaching that said in some way or another Paul did not give you the whole truth.  They would begin to teach some type of false gospel.  Paul kept reminding the churches, as he would today if he were here, that the gospel is simple, free, by grace.  Paul often got angry at those who would pervert the gospel.  In this text, he lets us know that false teaching is of demons, as a friend of mine would say, "from the pit of hell".  Paul lets Timothy, and us, know we need to be on guard because false teaching will keep on and become even worse as time goes on.  Let the spirit of God guide each of us into truth.
