False teachers aren’t the folks churning out illiterate students in many of our failing schools, as bad as those are.

When we talk about false teachers, we mean specifically religious teaching.

No, it’s not that annoying guy in the pulpit with the cheesy object lessons. Or the preacher who keeps bringing up that one sin you don’t want to be nagged about.

Or the one guy who doesn’t agree with that shiny new doctrine your favorite Christian ‘influencer’ likes to talk about. Quiet the opposite — that guy might actually be doing his job in protecting you from getting snared by one of these false teachers.

Nope. False teachers have some specific characteristics that can be easily spotted if you’re looking for them.

Get ready to take some notes. Even if you’re not being sucked in by the honeyed words of some false teacher, there’s a good chance you know someone else who is.

While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
