Today many people teach false doctrines, such as , all religions lead to God, Everyone will be saved in the end (universalism), Reincarnation ( coming back as another person or animal). and other doctrines that Jesus never mentioned and which there is no scripture to support. According to scripture, not your opinion, is it possible for these teachers of false doctrine to be Christians? Pleas supple scripture for your answer.

Amen this is certainly the proper scriptural definition . There is only one correct interpretation and only available from the Holy Spirit of God.
Are you aware of how the "Holy Bible" was put together? It was political process to determine which (books) to include in the bible. This is why interpretation is an issue and there are many versions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_canon
DS -all that is not important if we receive THE interpretation from the Holy Spirit of God whom we are told will teach us ALL truth. any other source is how false doctrine and denominations are begun and promoted
true but there is only one correct interpretation and it is ONLY available through The Holy Spirit of GOD. all other are false doctrines.
dashingscorpio- I think you should read Peter 1: 20 (NKJV) which states: "knowing first that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation."
The bible was meant to be UNDERSTOOD through the Holy Spirit. Not by one's interpretation.
graceinus, You proved my point. There is a verse for every stance. celafoe, unfortunately too many people rely on ministers, priests, and others to (explain) what is written. If everyone "agreed" there wouldn't be so many different "denominations".
dashingscorpio- I ask you to count just in the Book of Matthew alone how many times Jesus used the word UNDERSTAND or UNDERSTANDING. Jesus never once used the word interpretation.
yes all denominations are an abomination. God says we are to have unity and that is only possible when we ALL come to the ONLY correct interpretation which comes from the Holy Spirit. WE are to seek only HIS understanding not men's , see eph 4:13
your eccleastes quoteand the 10 from the law is not scripture for the new testament church. Christains are not sinners, they re righteous through the blood of CHrist but thay may sin .
celafoe, "Thy shall not kill" is in the "Old Testament" as well. Should we ignore everything that was written in the old testament? Most people view the bible as (one) book. They start with Adam & Eve and continue through Revelations.
ds- shall not kill is a mistranslation . the correct translation is "shall not murder". God kills and has had His people to kill many people throughout history. there is much to learn in OT. but the law is fulfilled and invalid. we live in NT
celafoe I believe Genesis 9: 6 will also help reinforce your last comment. And I don't believe there is a time limit on this verse either.
that is all true but you did not answer the question
I did. First sentence and last. You can be a Christian but still teach false doctrine.
i would say it might be possible to believe some false doctrine and be a Christian. but TEACH false doctrine, based on Paul,s teachings i do not think so. the 1st time you refused correction would disqualify you
Have you ever asked why there are so many Christian sects that teach doctrines that contradict each other? Christ only taught one gospel - His gospel and it is the only correct doctrine. Those who preach contrary to this are teaching false doctrine.
true all denominations are abominations because of men that trust themselves not God.
Jude 19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. (Spirit of God)
