1. Does Their Message Adhere to Sound Doctrine?

2 Peter 2:1 warns, “There will be false teachers among you who will secretly bring in destructive heresies…” Don’t assume that everyone who uses Bible verses to support their points is necessarily teaching truth. Satan is a deceiver whose common practice is to confuse people with a little bit of truth wrapped around a lie. 

Remember Eve in the garden? Satan used God’s words to lure her into his cunning deception. The Apostle Paul shared this same concern over his beloved church in Corinth: “I fear lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3). You have to know truth to be able to discern truth.
