We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Never Support False Teaching

The principle that we must not receive or support false teaching can be applied to many other activities today.  It applies, for instance, to sending money to radio or TV preachers who set forth false doctrine.  It has to do with supporting them by purchasing their materials or attending their conferences for a fee, and so forth.  In other words, nothing must be done that in any way might further the work of these false teachers.  Surely, that principle would apply to publishing or selling their books, wouldn't it?
