Thought of the Day !!

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. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. 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 (NLT)

Beware of false prophets (teachers, preachers, etc.).  Jesus told us this.  Paul warned of them in his letters.  And Peter is writing the same here.  Some will try to get your money, while others will try and lead you away from the Truth.  These who are leading people away from the truth are being guided themselves by the devil.  Some of their own free will, while others have been trapped and fallen into temptation. 

But either way, these false prophets are condemned by God.  Test all things that they say by scripture.  And when they use scripture to back things up, look it up yourself and make sure they are not taking it out of context with the Bible as a whole.  And above all, pray for protection from the Holy Spirit so that you do not fall into their traps and become condemned yourself.

In the love of Christ,
