MATTHEW 16:12 NKJV
Then they understood that He did not tell
them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the
Pharisees and Sadducees.
ACTS 20:28-31 NKJV
28 "Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the
flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to
shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
29 "For I know this, that after my departure savage
wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 "Also from among yourselves men will rise up,
speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after
31 "Therefore watch, and remember that for three years
I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.
ROMANS 16:17-18 NKJV
17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause
divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you
learned, and avoid them.
18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus
Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering
speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
2 CORINTHIANS 11:3-4,12-15 NKJV
3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent
deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted
from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus
whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit
which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have
not accepted, you may well put up with it.....
12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I
may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity
to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast.
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself
into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers
also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose
end will be according to their works.
GALATIANS 1:6-10 NKJV
6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon
from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different
7 which is not another; but there are some who
trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven,
preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you,
let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if
anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have
received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do i seek to
please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a servant
GALATIANS 5:6-12 NKJV
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor
uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.
7 You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying
8 This persuasion does not come from Him who
9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in you, in the Lord, that you
will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his
judgement, whoever he is.
11 And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision,
why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross
12 I could wish that those who trouble you would even
cut themselves off!
EPHESIANS 4:14 NKJV
that we should no longer be children,
tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness by which they
lie in wait to deceive,
COLOSSIANS 2:22 NKJV
which all concern things which perish
with the using--according to the commandments and doctrines of
1 TIMOTHY 1:10 NKJV
for fornicators, for sodomites, for
kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other
thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,
1 TIMOTHY 4:1-5 NKJV
1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in the
latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to
deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own
conscience seared with a hot iron,
3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain
from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by
those who believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing
is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving;
5 for it is sanctified by the word of God and
2 TIMOTHY 4:3 NKJV
For the time will come when they will not
endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because
they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
HEBREWS 13:9 NKJV
Do not be carried about with various and
strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by
grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been
occupied with them.
2 PETER 2:1-3 NKJV
1 But there were also false prophets among the
people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will
secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who
bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
2 And many will follow their destructive ways,
because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.
3 By covetousness they will exploit you with
deceptive words; for a long time their judgement has not been
idle, and their destruction does not slumber.
1 JOHN 4:1-3 NKJV
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test
the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets
have gone out into the world.
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every
Spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is
3 and every spirit that does not confess that
Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the
spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is
now already in the world.
2 JOHN 9-10 RSV
9 Any who goes ahead and does not abide in the
doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who abides in the
doctrine has both the Father and the Son.
10 If any one comes to you and does not bring this
doctrine, do not receive him into the house or give him any
REVELATIONS 2:2,14-15,24 NKJV
2 "I know your works, your labor, your patience,
and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested
those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them
14 "But I have a few things against you, because you
have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak
to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat
things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.
15 "Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of
the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
24 "But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as
many as do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the
depths of Satan, as they call them, I will put on you no other
