What do False Prophets/Teachers teach?

Curious about what the New Testament specifically has to say about false teachers?

Here’s my bulleted list with scripture references of the lies:

  • Lie #1: God’s grace allows us to live immoral lives (Jude 1:4)
  • Lie #2: Godliness is a way of making a profit/becoming wealthy (1 Timothy 6:5) 
  • Lie #3: Forbidding marriage (1 Timothy 4:3) 
  • Lie #4: Forbidding certain foods (1 Timothy 4:3) 
  • Lie #5: Jesus Christ isn’t God come in the flesh as a real man (1 John 4:2)
  • Lie #6: The Bible is full of errors and can’t be trusted (Matthew 4:4, 2 Timothy 3:16)

A list of some of their types of corrupt character and bad fruit:

  • Claim authority from their dreams (Jude 1:8)
  • Live immortal lives (Jude 1:8)
  • Defy authority (Jude 1:8)
  • Scoff at supernatural beings (Jude 1:8)
  • Deceive people for money (Jude 1:11)
  • Grumblers and complainers (Jude 1:16)
  • Live only to satisfy their desires (Jude 1:16)
  • Brag loudly about themselves (Jude 1:16)
  • Flatter others to get what they want (Jude 1:16)
  • Arrogant/conceited and understands nothing (1 Timothy 6:4)
  • Has an unhealthy interest in controversies and verbal disputes (1 Timothy 6:4)
  • They give rise to envy, dissension, slanders, evil suspicions, and constant bickering by people corrupted in their minds and deprived of the truth (1 Timothy 6:4)
  • Suppose that godliness is a way of making a profit/ becoming wealthy (1 Timothy 6:5)
