1. False Teachers Scatter the Sheep of God’s Pasture
2. False Teachers Tolerate and Encourage Sin by Their Teaching
3. False Teachers Turn “the grace of our God into lasciviousness”
4. God is serious about repentance.
Following your heart may sound good, but the “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” and we cannot understand how wicked it really is. False teachers appeal to the heart’s desires. They sound good on the surface, but if you take time to seek God with all your heart and search the scriptures, God will reveal their true nature to you, by His Spirit.
Lasciviousness is sin that can be sexual in nature but it can also have other forms. It is related to the words, ‘lust’, ‘wanton’, and ‘lewd’. Lust is sexual desire; wanton refers to something done maliciously; and lewd refers to lust or something obscene or indecent.
Turning “the grace of our God into lasciviousness” is making God’s grace a license to sin. This is abomination to God. God forbids it!
Acts 17:31 says, “Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”
IF YOU ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD, please read this message.
God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins.
If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19), and believe and confess aloud that Christ has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.
Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).
John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
