Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
– Colossians 2:8
Jesus had predicted that false teachers (“wolves in sheep’s clothing”) would find their way into the church. Paul warned the Ephesian elders of the same (Acts 20:29-30). It didn’t take long for this to become a reality, and it has been the reality Christians have faced ever since. We must beware. False teachers continue to cheat and spoil with their vain philosophies and empty deceits.
