On Heresy

When I was an undergraduate studying theology, I remember one of the lecturers in historical theology saying  that it is not just what a false teacher says that makes him or her a heretic, it is also what they omit, avoid and ignore that makes them heretical.

By not teaching the whole counsel of God, a preacher can be very economical with the truth.  The false teacher will not handle the word of truth rightly, but will twist, abuse and misuse the Bible.

2 Peter 3:16 warns us against false teachers.
