Flattery, False Teachers & Some Timeless Advice From a Fox

Some notes and handouts from today’s ‘God, life and the world around us’ session. This year I’ve been working our homeschool team through Luke’s historiographical accounts in The Gospel of Luke and Acts.

Today’s lesson was centred around Monday’s encounter with some content in an Usborne Reader, my ongoing journey through Chesterton’s, ‘Heretics’ and Acts 20.

It still leaves me gobsmacked when different, seemingly unrelated subjects like this align.

‘So guard yourselves and God’s people. Feed and shepherd God’s flock-His church, purchased with His own blood – over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as elders. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. Therefore, be alert.’
– (Acts 20:28-30, NLT & ESV)
