  2. I think it is a mistake to think one has ever fully matured in Christ. Being a Christian is a lifelong learning process, not relegated only to those who attend seminary. Also, it is quite clear in Christ’s teachings that we will not all learn the same way, the same things – or at the same depth as another.

  3. People who hold to false-doctrines aren’t always easy to spot, and may even rise to positions of leadership within churches, and if those false-doctrines seem to be “socially-acceptable”, they worm their way in quite-easily. I know a man who holds to a “socially-acceptable” version of Gnosticism, so he was elected and installed as an Elder in a PCA church. He and his wife left that church because the church refused to elect, ordain and install women as Elders and Deacons. Then, they came to the PCA church I belong too. No, he hasn’t sought an elected position, but he has wormed his way into leading the men’s discipleship group. What other false-doctrines does he hold to, and how many parts of the Bible is he willing to “throw-away” because they conflict with what he wants to believe?

    I had an encounter with him during a study in John’s Epistles. He didn’t like what I said, because I had done a “soft-challenge” of his Gnostic views, and he and his wife became noticeably “colder” towards me after that. He didn’t like it when I presented him with truth.

    Blessings!

    What an understatement! As I understand correctly, the PCA is a Conservative offshoot of a mainstream church that strayed from Biblical teaching. It is sad how much effort is required to keep the apostates at bay. If only more who call themselves Christian would study the Bible.
