The Making of False Teachers

In Spiritual Warfare - Learning from Tim Keller, we learn about the two strategies of the devils. The first is to tempt you with lies, emphasizing on the grace and forgiveness of God, to get you to commit the sin and the second is to follow-up with condemnation of you, emphazing the holiness of God, and keep in self-condemnation and guilt.

Lie is a powerful method of the devil.  Lie will bind you whereas truth will set you free. So it is no surprise that the devils will raise up many false teachers to deceive you to believe in such lies and keep in bondage.  In the talk by Keller, he refered to an older book, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices, and the part on the making of false teachers is given below in the mind-map.

In this present age of post-modernism, the pure doctrines of the gospels are under attack and corruption. It is important that we know the truth well and be able to discern the lies of the devils.
Know the steps of the development of the false teachers and be ready to expose their lies.
