This is just a few of the major false teachings and imbalanced doctrine being preached today by many. Apostasy in the church is at an all time high and finding 100% pure truth is getting harder and harder to find all the time. Only believing some scripture is not good enough in these last days. Remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 4:7 if and when you hear someone say "that's not what the bible says," when you know that it does. Jesus said to Satan when he quoted scripture out of context " the scripture also says do not test the Lord your God" . Jesus said this because Satan did quote scripture, but it was putting God to a foolish test and taking it out of context.
Others may take scripture out of context, add or subtract, on purpose to suit a particular belief they want to push more strongly than another. If all scripture is to be used for teaching and it is, than it is unbalanced and dangerous to push one doctrine over another. They ALL are important and one truth does not negate another, instead it is line upon line and precept upon precept. There are no contradictions in the bible. If you think that there is, then you are not understanding it correctly.
ie: One scripture says we can't be plucked from Jesus hand and speaks to the eternal security of the believer, while another says some will wander from the truth and lose their faith and possibly lose their Salvation like in Exodus 32:33. Is one passage more important than the other? No! Some will continue or remain in the faith and be eternally secure, while others will wander and or turn from the truth they were in by their own choosing and lose what they had.
1. Beware of anyone who calls themselves "the one and only" or "the last day prophet of God" and puts their words above that of what scripture says. They are false teachers and or false prophets plain and simple. There are many of these today and some are very educated by mans standards, but don't mind twisting, adding to or taking from the word of God.
10. The church "reformers" of centuries ago, reformed and split off from the Catholic church to form the Protestant church. But the Protestant church today, is by many accounts just as far from the original Gospel, as was and is the Catholic church. Just because they protested against what was going on with the Catholic church, does not mean they adhere or recognize all scripture as being relevant today. Finding 100% truth in both major denominations is very hard to find.
Some revere the words of the church reformers such as Martin Luther, John Calvin and even some more modern day preachers, above scripture and even excuse Martin Luther for calling the book of James an "Epistle of straw." Problem is, he never recanted those views, so to revere him the way some do, is nothing less than idolatry.
John Calvin was a known "hot head" just as many extreme Calvinists are today. It is getting to be so bad that one modern day Calvanist John Piper, had to come up with the phrase "kind Calvanist", to try and dissuade some militant Calvanists who put Calvins teaching above scripture, to not beating Christs fellow servants, as many are known to do. Since it is in fact the number one job of any Christian, to be kind and loving, we can see how prideful many who following unbalanced doctrine can become.
