The apostle Paul warned early church leaders, “the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons by means of hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron. “ (1 Timothy 4:1-2)
What does Paul mean by “the faith?” These are the foundations of what we believe as Christians. If we don’t know what the foundations of the Christian faith are, it would be very easy to entertain deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.
The Theological section of Artios solidifies the Artios student in the foundations of our Christian thought and theology. It is vital that we start here.
