False Prophets

Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.  May The Lord bless you and pour His grace upon you and your loved ones.

Recently we learned of a person who professes to be a Christian, but has diluted Christian beliefs with knowledge they have gained through the study of other religions, many of them of the Oriental region of the world.  A “Free Thinker,” this person has incorporated the knowledge they have gained in their study of other religions into their belief system.  None of which is found in the Bible, and is therefore non-Christian.

This person espouses these non-Christian beliefs to the point that at every opportunity they preach the need for Christianity to change and challenges Christians to incorporate these foreign beliefs.  Most of the time, people who have been approached by this person, do not speak in opposition to what is being said.  Most likely, because they do not desire to confront the person, either because they do not wish confrontation, or because they do not feel knowledgeable enough to speak against the person’s beliefs.

Very simply, Christians have accepted Jesus Christ as their lord and savior.  It is important that we remember this when approached and challenged with foreign beliefs.  It is also important to remember that Matthew 7:15 says that we must be wary of false prophets, for there are many of them in the world.

In order to combat false teachings, it is important for us to become knowledgeable in the Bible, for it is our connection with The Lord . . . The one true connection we have!  And it is important that we speak against such teachings, especially if they are put forth as Christian, but are of a false nature.

In some cases, there may seem to be enough truth in what is being said to cause us to want to believe such a person.  We must be wary of this!

May God bless you and your loved ones.


Your humble servant in Christ.
