God takes seriously the diluting or falsifying of his message of hope and freedom. He does not tolerate those that would use his name to extort, intimidate, control or in any other way deceive his chosen ones. Like any father, he could tolerate someone attacking or trying to lead him astray, but if you mess with his kids, it will not go well for you.
So many have tried to use God’s message of freedom for personal gain or glory. He tells us that the end for them will be awful. We have to seek the truth. We also have to carefully discern the message those who teach are spreading. If their focus is on anyone other than the Lord, it is a sign they are not teaching the truth. Their message should be clear, consistent and Christ centered, otherwise its veracity is suspect. We need to follow the true message and teachers that are committed to its communication. Help me Lord to listen to and teach the truth!
God Bless You
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. 2 Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. 3 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.
