Eight Symptoms of False Teaching – J.C. Ryle

Pastor Colin Smith (@PastorColinS) of Unlocking the Bible recently offered 7 Traits of False Teachers on The Gospel Coalition’s website. In it, he contrasts the teaching 2 Peter 1 and 2 to show several traits of a false teacher. Over 100 years ago, J.C. Ryle shared a similar list that focused on symptoms of false teaching that still has tremendous relevance for the church today.

Here are Bishop J.C. Ryle’s 8 symptoms of false teaching:

1. There is an undeniable zeal in some teachers of error–their “earnestness” makes many people think they must be right.

2. There is a great appearance of learning and theological knowledge–many think that such clever and intellectual men must surely be safe to listen to.

3. There is a general tendency to completely free and independent thinking today–many like to prove their independence of judgment by believing the newest ideas, which are nothing but novelties.

4. There is a wide-spread desire to appear kind, loving, and open-minded–many seem half-ashamed to say that anybody can be wrong or is a false teacher.

5. There is always a portion of half-truth taught by modern false teachers–they are always using scriptural words and phrases, but with unscriptural meaning.

6. There is a public craving for a more sensational and entertaining worship–people are impatient with the more inward and invisible work of God within the hearts of men.

7. There is a superficial readiness all around to believe anyone who talks cleverly, lovingly and earnestly, forgetting that Satan often masquerades himself as an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14).

8. There is a wide-spread ignorance among professing Christians–every heretic who speaks well is surely believed, and anyone who doubts him is called narrow-minded and unloving.

All these are especially symptoms of our times. I challenge any honest and observant person to deny them. These tend to make the assaults of false doctrine today especially dangerous and make it even more important to say loudly, “Do not be carried away with strange doctrine!”

    Ahh…da corect, nu mi-am dat seama, adica mai bine zis nu m-am gandit la farisei. Merci

  3. felicitari frate daniel pentru mult nu am mai vazut pe un blog sau un site de stiri crestin un asemenea trebui mai des discutat despre acest ziua de azi e multa manipulare dar multi crestini spun ca e duhul sfant si nu poti spune nimic ca esti pus la zid.acesti invatatori falsi vor duce crestinatatea la acea lepadare de credinta despre care vorbeste pavel in 2 tesaloniceni.cred ca invatatura falsa cea mai raspandita e cea cu divertismentul din biserica urmata de cea clasica cu predestinarea,rapirea bisericii inainte de necazul cel mare si multe ziua de azi muzica tine loc duhului sfant in biserica si crestinii prefera sa ridice mainile decat sa plece genunchii.m-am intristat cand am vazut cum s-a transformat totul la biserica din chicago dupa plecarea fratelui valentin cand a inceput acest model de lauda si inchinare in biserici se doarme bine in sala cred ca de asta e si preferat peste tot.sunt frati in varsta care s-au schimbat brusc dupa noul model de biserica spunand ca domnul isus a fost rastignit de legalisti.o conserva care ia aer din exterior se strica tot asa e cu crestinul care prinde aer lumesc.
