I would think that to keep yourself from false teachings is to study the Word to its utmost corners so that when the flase teachings come around you will have the knowlede to stand up to them. This is why mermorizing bible verses is good. Also I would think waiting on the Lord, and praying earnestly and following His will, you will be so steadfast in your faith that a great storm of false teachings will not drag you from Him. Here are some bible verses I have collected on the subject:

No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence.
