“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” 1 Tim. 4:1
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:16
We are not trying here to accuse people, we don’t question their motives, their hearts, personal lives, characters, etc. They may be nice people or even sincere, but that doesn’t mean they may not be deceived. We just question their doctrines in light of the Scriptures, especially because our salvation depends on the true doctrine we find in the Word of God, not in the words of men. We can’t take verses out of context that’s what sects do and the reason why they are in error. Exhortation and admonition (right judgment) seek to gently correct and restore.
I was a Catholic half of my life, most of my family still are, I love them, have witnessed to them and pray for their salvation, but they are not following the doctrines of the bible, the teachings of Jesus, they are following doctrines of men. It’s true that there may be some of them having revelation of who is Christ but surely they are also in their way out of that system like many of us did, please let us not forget to pray for them.
“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” Matthew 15: 8-9
