Verses on False Teachers

Jesus, as quoted by Matthew

from Luke

  • “They traveled through the whole island until they came to Paphos. There they met a Jewish sorcerer and false prophet named Bar-Jesus,”  ‭‭Acts‬ ‭13:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

from the Apostle Paul

from the Apostle Peter

  • “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves.”  ‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭2:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

from the Apostle John

  • “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬
  • “But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.”  ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:20‬ ‭NIV‬‬

*the five themes are not listed in any order. They are based on my observation alone.
