    54. 54. ConclusionWe must be careful as many false teachers will come about2 Timothy 3:13-17 But evil people and charlatans will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived themselves.  14You, however, must continue in the things you have learned and are confident about. You know who taught you  15and how from infancy you have known the holy writings, which are able to give you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  16Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,  17that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.
    55. 55. Conclusion Walking with God is both a theology and a practice. We use our knowledge of God and the things of God to walk the practical life of the spirit. If we know who we are in God we can defend against the attacks and “lies” of the enemy (and their false teachers)
