The correct answer is "No, don't allow false teachers into your home." But then, I must qualify that answer. With so many versions of 'truth' going around, with each peddler insisting that their version is the correct one, I strongly suggest you don't turn away the 'false' teachers. Why, because you just might be actually following false teachers NOW, and the supposed 'false' teacher may actually be bringing the truth! So my advice is, 'test everything. Hold on to the good' 1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NIV). And don't subject yourself to 'hollow and deceptive philosophy', but check everything against the written Word. That alone is the standard of faith. And the Word consists of all books, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. It's actually FALSE teachers who are quick to block you from hearing alternative versions, because they fear the truth will set you free. Bless.
