I started my presentation by showing that objective truth exists and it is a biblical concept, which demonstrates that all worldviews that deny the existence of objective truth are automatically false. Then, I presented Christianity as the true story of reality because it matches reality, is internally consistent, and is based on a reliable authority, namely, the resurrected Jesus of Nazareth who is the truth (John 14:6) and who’s teachings are based on the Word of truth, the Bible (John 17:17). From there, I presented what the Bible says about false teaching and showed how in the New Testament false teaching is always an attempt to counterfeit the real thing. Then, I showed the 5-step process for how false teaching sought to embed itself in the early church with Gnosticism (e.g., Colossians and 1 John) and the Judaizers (e.g., Galatians). I concluded the message with a 5 point challenge for how Christians must respond to the false teaching that is seeking to infiltrate their lives today.
