In Jeremiah 27:14-15 The King was surrounded by false prophets, so he was warned: “It is a lie that they are prophesying to you. I have not sent them, declares the LORD.” It’s a scary thought that some people we may trust to give us biblical advise, are actually feeding us lies. From Church pulpits, to YouTube personalities, how do we know, who to trust?
Here’s 3 Facts to Spot the Fakes: One, they lie about Sin: Sin is serious. Isaiah 59:2 - but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear. When the topic of sin is conveniently ignored, sugar coated, or redefined to be acceptable. Stay away. Two, they lie about the Gospel: The Bible is clear about how we are saved. We are saved, by Grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. If anyone tries to add anything to that, like worship on a certain day, or pray to a certain saint, or perform any kind of service to God… Stay Away.
Last, but most important. Three, they lie about Jesus: Jesus is God. Referencing the Trinity, John 1:1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Referencing his deity, Jesus Says in John 10:30 – I and the Father are one. When Thomas when confronted with the risen Jesus, says), John 20:28 – “My Lord and my God!” Jesus is not just a man. He is not just a Prophet. He is not an angel. Jesus is God. If anyone says any different. Stay Away.
Remember: Be careful who you listen to: Use God’s word to fact check their word.
