Beware When Someone Claims Scripture Has Been Misunderstood for Centuries

Beware of this tactic of false teachers: claiming they know more than Bible scholars throughout history.

If someone tells you a Scripture has been misunderstood for thousands of years, that's a clear indication they are promoting a false teaching.  

This is a major tactic for justifying cultural sins that are clearly condemned in Scripture. 

But even if we don't fall for this tactic which discredits Bible scholars throughout history, we'll still be pressured by other false teachings to reject the biblical attitude toward sin. 

Instead of seeing sinners as people choosing to do something against God's loving commands, we'll be told they're victims who shouldn't be confronted with their sins.

There’s nothing wrong with updated views on things like technology, fashion, weather, and industry. But God's Word is unchanging.

Just because culture approves of certain sins doesn't mean God does. We must never forget that sin damages people's souls, and we have a responsibility to share God's warnings because they are an unchanging element of His unchanging love.

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Matthew 24:35  

“All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.” Psalm 119:160  

“Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.” Psalm 119:89 

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” Isaiah 40:8

Another false teaching, the Hebrew Roots Movement, claims that Christians have misinterpreted passages that tell us we are no longer under Old Testament laws. See All or Nothing: Hebrew Roots Movement.
