Indicators Of False Witnessing
1.) It stems from doctrinal error.
2.) It revolves around impure motives--teachers glorify themselves rather than Christ.
3.) False witnessing involves deceit--twisting Scripture, faulty logic, and manipulation.
4.) False witnessing includes pleasing people through flattery and teaching what itching ears want to hear.
5.) False teaching involves selfish gain--profiting from the gospel.
The people whom these factors are applicable have proven to be burdensome to the church, especially to Christians who are new or lacking in discernment. False teachers need to be rebuked sharply and avoided.
