Romans 16:17-18 – Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Notice who are the ones that cause divisions…
It is not those who prove all things and hold fast to that which is true. It is not those who stay with “the old paths” and remain steadfast the in the doctrine they have learned.
It is those who promote contrary doctrine using good words and fair speeches and deceive the hearts of the simple.
