Novel Doctrine Should Raise One’s Suspicions

Teachings of Jesus 38 of 40. the rapture. one in the field. Jan Luyken etching. Bowyer Bible

“Whenever a Christian encounters a doctrine that has not been taught by anyone in any branch of Christ’s church for over eighteen centuries, one should be very suspect of that teaching. This fact in and of itself does not prove that the new teaching is false. But, it should definitely raise one’s suspicions, for if something is taught in Scripture, it is not unreasonable to expect at least a few theologians and exegetes to have discovered it before.”
