Seven Characteristics of False Teachers

Have you ever wondered how to spot a false teacher? Sometimes it is easy. Sometimes it is not so easy. Whether easy or not, it is imperative that we find and weed out those among us who are false teachers. In this short post, the author lists seven characteristics to help us spot them. These are provided by the Puritan Thomas Brooks in his book Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices.

As I read the list I was struck by how much this list seems to resemble those teachers who are in the seeker friendly movement.  Maybe it is just me or my bias against this unbiblical movement but I don’t think so.  What do you think?  When you read the list do you see these in practice today?  If so, where?
