BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS

We here at Thinkerup.com will be posting ongoing articles on some of the false teachers swirling around and throughout the church today. Our desire is to make Christians aware of the dangerous teachings, erroneous doctrines and damaging theologies of these wolves in sheeps clothing.

Many Christians may not be aware of the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) deceptions within the teachings of men like:

Rob Bell
Tony Campolo
Brian McLaren
Leonard Sweet
Dan Kimball
Ken Blanchard
and others...

Our desire is to inform fellow believers of these dangers and pray that any who may be exposed to some of these pastors, authors and speakers would read the many resources we will have on this site through articles and links to other sites.

This is an on-going process and we've just begun to use this blog site as a forum for spreading much needed information regarding these falsehoods.

We will be writing articles ourselves as well as posting links to articles by others which will be able to help explain how and why these people's teachings are dangerous to the body of Christ, and to help you use good Biblical discernment.

One of our biggest concerns is how some of these teachers are influencing the youth. If you're in high school or middle school and are reading the articles and links on this site, please tell your parents about it. You need to be aware of how false teachings can so easily slip into the church. Any church that does not deliberately teach biblical doctrine and how to use good discernment is susceptible.

Read the Bible yourself. Read reliable versions (and I don't mean THE MESSAGE version). Search the scriptures daily like the Bereans did in Acts 17:11. Test everything you hear, hold on to what is good, and avoid all forms of evil (1 Thess. 5:21-22).

PRAY...pray with your parents. If they don't pray but they are saved–ask them to pray with you as a family. Ask your parents to have family Bible studies and worship. Your family is the greatest small group you can have. Ask God through the Holy Spirit to speak to you through His Word as your come before Him with clean hands and a pure heart (Psalms 24:3,4).

He WILL reveal His truth to you through His Holy Scriptures if we humble ourselves before Him and desire to pursue holiness in His sight.

We will be posting articles in about a week starting with Rob Bell.

There are a lot of strange teachings with Rob Bell and because of some things going on at our former church we thought it was important to bring some of the false teachings of Bell to light first.
