1. True Bible teachers teach THE TRUTH of scripture which reproves, rebukes, and corrects people's wrong DOCTRINES and BEHAVIOR.

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT with all longsuffering and DOCTRINE.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for DOCTRINE, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in righteousness:

2. False Bible teachers will reject the truth, teach LIES, and tell people what THEY WANT to hear.

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be FALSE TEACHERS AMONG YOU who privily shall bring in damnable heresies ...

2 Peter 2:19 While THEY PROMISE THEM LIBERTY, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves TEACHERS, HAVING ITCHING EARS; And THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EATS FROM THE TRUTH, and shall be turned unto fables.

 

3 - It is our job to compare what people teach to the scriptures so that we may discern the one from the other.

Act 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and SEARCHED THE SCRIPTURES DAILY, WHETHER THOSE THINGS WERE SO.
