We will be on the air today with our host Minister Lorrie Timbs from "Empowered Radio". The topic will be “10 Destructive Doctrines."

Heresies are dissensions arising from diversity of opinions and aims, the word originally represented the making of a choice or having an option, progressing to having a preference because of an opinion or a sentiment which easily slips into a form of disunity. It's having the diversity of beliefs which creates dissension, and substitution self-willed opinions as a contrast to submission to the truth. Another way of putting it is people professing opinions independently of the truth. How heresy works is false prophets/teachers will bring in an opinion or a lie alongside truth introducing a whole new thought contrary to the truth, hence, they are teachers “who will secretly bring in destructive heresies.” Peter was warning of greedy false teachers who will use people as a means of reaching their own selfish goals. The New Testament details that deceptive teachers will characterize the church age and that their activities will intensify “in latter times” 1 Tim. 4:1. Matthew 24:11 sketches the prevailing conditions of religious deception from false prophets in the latter times, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
