A Less Wrong False Teacher?

Is there such a thing as a “less wrong” false teacher? Or have you ever said something like, “Well, he’s not as bad as this person.”?

I caught myself thinking that last night. First, we all know what a false teacher is… one who does not preach the gospel. One who is, as some put it, gospel light. Or any number of movements out there – the Health, Wealth & Prosperity Gospel, the Word of Faith movement, Continue reading

Obviously, since this is Mr. Baucham’s quote, most of this blog will come from what he said. However, I will start with this. I have been accused of using circular reasoning to defend the Bible. People will say you can’t defend the Bible with the Bible.
