Excellent question, thanks for asking! This is a point of confusion for many grasshoppers. The rule for using plumber’s (teflon) tape is to apply it only to Male Pipe Threads (also called "Male Iron Pipe" or MIP)–never to flare connection threads. This is illustrated in this picture. More information on gas connections here.
To make the connection to your appliance, you should always use a gas flex connector.
Remember to leak test all your gas connections!
