I think this is a critical question to be dealt seriously with humility (up-voted). Citing appropriate texts from the Scripture and pulling relevant quotations from various authors, below is my sincere reaction to the question:
Recognize the veracious authority of truth which is always true beyond a shadow of doubt (2Cor. 13:8); to reject truth is to incur judgement “that they all might be condemned who believed NOT the truth ... (2Thess. 2:12).”
Realize that there are key “rules laid down in the Scripture to govern and regulate the teaching of doctrines which, if we would ALWAYS heed and follow, we would never be guilty of telling or preaching “doctrinal lies.” The FIRST one is that no doctrine can be established upon any one, single scripture. Jesus said, “In the mouth of TWO or THREE witnesses every word may be established (Matt. 18:16; John 8: 13-18).”
Then we should never teach and preach everything we believe, while we need to believe all we preach. “How is this,” you say? One can believe things which are not scriptural. Jesus had this to say about what HE taught and testified: “Verily, verily (truly, truly), I say unto thee, ‘We speak that we DO KNOW (not merely what we believe and think is right), and testify that we HAVE SEEN’” (John 3:11). Be sure you are right before you preach doctrine, as it generally pertains to salvation directly or indirectly and has to do with the eternal destiny of the souls of men and women.
Doctrinal lying is a terrible thing for anyone to contemplate doing; but, nevertheless, much of it is being done right over the sacred desk, and elsewhere, pertaining to the plan of salvation, holy living, eternal punishment, etc.”.
[Quoted from the book “The Sin of Lying by Elder. B. E. Echols, p. 42]
Ponder and search out and set in order, search to find just the right words, and what is upright and true (Ecc. 12:9-10); compare spiritual things with spiritual (2Cor. 2:13-15).
“Listen to Your Teacher
It always amazes to recall that God himself wants to be our teacher. His word on the subject is this:
‘And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need to have anyone teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about ALL things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. (1Jh. 2:27 NASB)’
By this we understand that the Spirit of God, who lives in each believer, is our private tutor. Though God has given us pastors and teachers for our good (Eph. 4: 11, 12), they are in addition to (and no substitute for) the Holy Spirit. This means that the humblest believer in Christ may be taught of God through His word, even when human teachers are lacking.
The Lord Jesus Christ makes it abundantly clear in these words:
‘When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into ALL truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. (Jh. 16: 13, 14)’
Though the primary application of these words is to the eleven disciples whom he was addressing in this upper room scene, our Lord makes it clear that the Spirit’s ministry of teaching would extend to all believers in Christ. For He says:
‘I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word. Jh. 17:20’”
[Quoted from the book “Basics of Bible Interpretation by Bob Smith (Robert W. Smith), p. 24]
- Avoid the danger of disregarding literary context
“You have probably heard it said that you can make the Bible say anything you want. That is true only if you disregard the literary context. When you honor the literary context (...), you cannot make the Bible say just anything.
... This usually happens when individuals focus on a single verse without paying attention to how the surrounding verses might affect its meaning. ...
... The way our Bibles have been divided into chapters and verses doesn’t help matters much. The chapter and verse numbers help us find passages quickly, but they can also lead us to believe that each verse stands alone as an independent unit of thought, like a number in a phone book. Just because we attach numbers to the sentences in a paragraph doesn’t mean that we can rip one particular sentence out of its context and disconnect it from what precedes or follows.”
