PreacherPICLg2There are all sorts of religious teachers on cable TV and the internet.  They may speak some truth, but because they do not tell the whole truth – their total message is false.  The curve for prophets in the Bible is steep where 99% is an F.

Jesus does not encourage heresy hunting, and He condemned judgmental attitudes.  But false teachers must be recognized and we must not be taken in.

In our culture pluralism is popular.  Although everyone may have the right to his or her  own  opinion,  it  does  not  follow that  every  opinion  is  right.   It  may  seem intolerant to speak of “false” prophets, yet this is what Jesus calls them. The kingdom of God is the issue.  If we fail to heed Jesus’ warning means that the threat of judgment that loom over the heads of false teachers becomes a threat to others as well.
