ERRONEOUS DOCTRINES BEGET LOOSE MORALS
When you choose to swim in the polluted waters of false doctrines, you are bound to swallow the filth into your lungs. You can’t wade in the sewage of erroneous teachings and not expect the stench to stick to your soul.
A tree is known by its fruits. False doctrines and erroneous doctrines beget loose morals and unspeakable scandals; they are the deadly fruits of a poisonous tree. Sooner or later, they corrupt the soul and leads to the ruin – i.e., complete catastrophe and total annihilation of the kind that befell Sodom and Gomorrah – of the hearer (2 Timothy 2:14).
