There are many godly teachers and prophets who sacrificially share the Gospel so that those who are lost may know the truth. However, just as there are many who share the truth, seeking to find and save the lost, there are as many (perhaps even more) false teachers and false prophets, who preach a different gospel than the Gospel of Christ. These false teachers seek to satisfy their own flesh, and the gospel they teach is a selfish gospel.
It has long disturbed me to see and hear false doctrines being taught to those who are ignorant of the Word of God, Therefore, I feel it is necessary to expose the false teachers and false prophets, as well as the false doctrines they teach, not because I want to speak poorly of anyone, but because the lives of many men and women who are exposed to their teachings are at stake.
Therefore, regardless of who might be offended, I will share the truth about the false teachers, preachers and prophets that people look up to, as well as the false doctrines they teach, and I will back up my posts with scripture. Having said that, below are some scriptures which explain why I feel led to share these posts…
15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. 16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. 20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.
~ Matthew 7:15-20 ~
Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
~ 1 John 4:1 ~
1 But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. 3 In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed.
~ 2 Peter 2:1-3 ~
