Addressing Error in the Church

A couple of days ago, I posted a link to a blog post by Jay Adams concerning the question of promptings of the Spirit. At the MySpace extension of Pistueo, someone left a harsh comment about Adams' piece. Let me quote the last line of that comment:
The remedy for that is to seek God, not attack His people. Shame on them, and on those who post this kind of 'holy' slander.
I responded, but there is one other question this part of the comment leaves open. Is it alright to point out error? Is it slanderous to say someone is teaching falsely and, more importantly, is it unbiblical?

Adams comes to the rescue again with his latest post, "Fighting Error in the Church.

Of course, we do need to be careful. We speak truth in love, practicing a spirit of grace while being as winsome as possible. Further, we need to pick our battles, and recognize when it is not our place to speak up. Nonetheless, that does not negate our duty to try to correct error when God calls us to do so.
