What Can We Do to Prevent Apostasy?

posted on October 18, 2021

[143 words]

We need to appoint and support faithful elders who will properly oversee the flock (Acts 20:28-32).

We need to be busy now training other leaders to take their place. Consider Joshua’s training and the influence it wielded (Joshua 24:31).

We need to learn again proper respect for the Word of God (Psalm 119:9-16).

We must teach this to our children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).

We must vaccinate against the errors of our day by exposing all false teachers, even if this means being negative (Acts 20:29-32; 2 Timothy 4:1-5).

We must indoctrinate each generation. It is right to teach doctrine (1 Timothy 4:16; 2 John 9—11).

We need to pray fervently for elders and preachers (James 5:18).

We must be set for the defense of the gospel (Philippians 1:1 7).
