If it's OK to follow whatever teachings sound good as long as you Believe why did Paul in his first letter to Timothy, name Hymenaeus’ as an associated with another apostate, Alexander. The apostle states that he had handed Hymenaeus and Alexander “over to Satan,” evidently referring to Paul’s expelling or disfellowshipping them from the congregation.—1Ti 1:18-20; 2Ti 2:16, 17.
Why didn't he just say "Well if you like that teaching it's OK cuz it's all leading to Christ" ?
What are your thought?

I'm sorry... What I'm asking I guess is if having many different and at times opposite teachings how does one know that what they are following would have been approved by the First Century Christian Apostles?
Does that make more sense?
