Theologian John Piper has warned that false teaching and destructive behavior are “present dangers in this fallen world for the church” and identified five factors to consider before publicly naming a false teacher. 

In an episode of “Ask Pastor John” posted to Desiring God on Friday, a listener inquired about whether or not false teachers need to be publicly called out for their faulty teaching. 

“Are we taking a judgment that isn’t ours? Or should we rest in God’s ultimate knowledge? And if a prominent false teacher is to be called out, who does this — where and how?” the reader asked.
