Heresy represents teaching that deviates from the truth. We are warned against it in Acts 20:29-32 and Philippians. 3:2.
Our only sufficiency necessary to expose heresy and false teachers is the Word of God under the direct influence of the Holy Spirit.
Sincerely, Dr. Arthur Belanger
Epistle of Jude verses 4 to 7 - Exposing Bewitchers
Heresy, how it finds root in the Church? This is an important question because heresies abound dogmatically. In the following verses, Jude exposes these be-witchers. The term heresy means a teaching that is contrary to biblical doctrine. The apostle Paul confronted heresy in the Colossian church (Colossian. 2:1-23).
Satan initiates heresy in Bible believing Churches by masquerading it as Bible doctrine worthy of debate. Heresy will always find its opportunity to abound where the knowledge of God's word is weak. Heresies always rely on human insight and wisdom.
Like Paul, Jude was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write transparently about the evil of heresy. All heresies at its origination is in self exaltation. The apostle Jude deliberately condemns any and all teaching that credits humanity and not Christ with being the answer to all of life's problems.
