I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. - Romans 16:17-18 (ESV) Ever play the game 2 Truths & A Lie? In this party game, you go around a circle and one person says 2 things about themselves that are true about themselves and one 'truth'. The goal is to figure out who are the best liars. It's a fun game and a great ice breaker. This same game is not fun when it comes to the gospel, but often times that is how error creeps in. Things sound good. The person is eloquent. So what they say has to be true. Right? As Paul draws the book of Romans to a close he sounds a warning. WATCH OUT! He wants the Romans (and us) to be on alert. He lays out the dangers and motives of false teachers. Take a few minutes to read through Romans 16 as we finish up this book. Also, I'd love to hear about the things in this book that have impacted you!
