Doctrines of Demons: Guarding Against the Influx of False Teachers

“As Christians, we believe that there is a spiritual battle going on and that we are called to fight that battle through prayer. We should be praying for discernment, protection from deception, and the Holy Spirit’s guidance as we seek to know and follow Christ.”

(The Dissenter) The phrase “doctrines of demons” appears only once in the New Testament in 1 Timothy 4:1. The verse reads, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons.” This warning is solemn and sobering, and it is something that Christians today should take very seriously.

So what exactly are these “doctrines of demons” that Paul warns about?

Before we can understand what these doctrines of demons are, we need first to understand the context of the passage in which this phrase appears.

In this letter, Paul is giving instructions and guidance for how Timothy should lead and care for the people in his church. View article →
