The Result of Heresy: Destruction
As we have studied, those who follow the ways of heresy will be led to destruction.
From the standpoint of Christianity, heretics are those who do not follow the teachings of the Bible. Heresy is the weeds that have been sown by the devil in an effort to bring the way of truth into disrepute. Then, which church can be considered heretical: the Church of God—that follows the teachings of the Bible—or the religious bodies that do not follow the teachings of the Bible, obstinately blaming the Church of God because it follows doctrines which are different than their own?
Jesus foretold the appearance of heretical teachings.
Matt. 13:24-42『... "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away...Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn...As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age...They will weed out everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."』
