False Prophets

Something to think about.

False Prophets

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matthew 7:15

I used to think this verse referred to people outside the body of Christ. I’ve learned that the new testament was written for the Christians. Its warnings and directives are not intended for the world at large.  The world as a whole welcomes even applauds those who bring false doctrine. This verse is intended for us who believe. It is for us to expose those within our ranks who are espousing false, contradictory beliefs to the rest of the body. It is for us to hold our leader’s teachers accountable to the word of God. I am responsible for challenging those who are bending even accepting the false doctrine. Leaders and teachers who are bowing to the pressures of societies need to be absolved of guilt. We, Christians are responsible for the health of the body of Christ. We need to get closer to the word of God and separate ourselves from the deceptions of the devil.  We are foolish to expect our society to reject false doctrine based on its moral compass. Without Christ,  no moral compass exists.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
