Resurgent: Sudden strong progression where we see something revive, grow and develop again unto new life.
Dave speaks about false teaching and ways we can combat it. False teaching can include quoting Scripture with no regard to its context, or interpreting a passage without respect to its target audience or its time. It can also be non-Biblical doctrine drawn from Jewish or Greek beliefs.
How to combat false teaching:
1. Have love as the motivation #1Corinthians13. You should aim to restore rather than to kick people when they’re down #Revelation2:2-4.
2. Have a pure heart, which comes from God #2Timothy2:22; #Psalm24; #Titus3:5; #Romans6:17.
3. Have a good conscience, which is a God-created ability/capacity to self-judge #Romans 2:14-15; #1Timothy4:2.
To be cont’d next week…
