Don't Even Greet The False Teacher, Much Less Give Him A Microphone

2Jo 1:9 Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, 11 for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.

To give air time, discussion time, a pulpit, an audience, a microphone to a false teacher is to violate the above passage. Its mutiny against the King of kings.

Instead of aiding and abetting a false teacher "and let the viewer decide", Christians are to expose their error and reject the man without defending him, giving him a wide birth, giving him time to manipulate and teach others.

What part of "do not receive him" or "whoever greets him partakes in his wicked works" don't you bloggers, interviewers, apologists, I-Don't-Know-What-Gospel Coalition/ Animal Room/ Desiring-I-Don't-Know-What-God Conference, get? What part is not clear to you? A man who teaches a false gospel or Jesus, a man who teaches a false justification or salvation, a man who denies the Genesis account of God speaking forth His creation in 6 Literal Days, a man who denies the absolute sovereignty of God even over weather much less salvation, is to be REJECTED, NOT GREETED MUCH LESS A PLATFORM TO SPEAK.

Scripture is totally biased for the Truth and against error. It doesn't mix the two and tells us to not either. If you can't even get that straight, you have no business trying to straighten out anyone else.

Bravo. But hey, it's not "church!" So they can have their false teachers in. However the Internet IS church, so women are not allowed to speak.

How backward is that?

It seems that some men are quick to discount anything a woman says in any context and use the "woman cannot teach men" to justify their actions. Sure women are not supposed to be in authority over men but that does not mean that a woman cannot voice her concerns and back it up with Scripture. Even wives discuss things with their husbands when there is a disagreement whether it is theological or not. If I see my husband going down the wrong path I would do the Christian thing by telling him for his own good.
