How to talk to your church leaders about false teachers

Over the last few episodes, we’ve been talking about the topic of discernment – how to handle things when we encounter false teachers and false doctrine.
In our “Doing Discernment” episode, we took a look at how to determine if a teacher is trustworthy and whether or not you should be following him or her. In our “Words with Friends: How to contend with loved ones” episode, we talked about how to approach and gently warn a friend who’s following a false teacher.
But what about when false teachers or false doctrine impacts your church? What’s the right and biblical way to address it? Michelle and Amy discuss how to talk to your church leaders about false teachers.

    The difficulty I find is when the friend you warn turns out to be an apologist for virtually every false teacher in the charismatic movement. You discover that they aren’t just being deceived, but have knowingly embraced error (of course they would never call it that). What do you do when your friend turns out to be a formal heretic?

      Pray for him, share the biblical gospel with him, and let him know you’re always there if he has questions or wants to talk. Sadly, that’s about all you can do.
