From these days, there’s a lot of false doctrines and misleading messages that are being broadcasted in today’s society that I have seen. Many are turning to false religions and false messages that feel good and is ticklish to the ears. Many don’t read their Bible because they believe what the pastor or teacher is saying. Nowadays, we have to be discerning and learn in the Bible if the pastor has said is true.
Matthew 7:15-20 New Living Translation
Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from the thornbushes, or figs from thistles? A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.
The Bible makes it quite clear we are to be warned about such people. False teachers will act okay and nice to people but they are really vicious wolves who don’t give a care about you. Many try to use scriptures in their messages to sound okay but really they are corrupt and making it a false doctrine by their own terms. They twist the words of what God says.
The false teachers speak what people want to hear rather than calling people to live according to what God wants. A prophet has to be matched up to what the Word of God says (what Christians call the Holy Bible). All of us nowadays need to be discerning of false teachings and doctrines that are being used.
I have heard that a lot of Christians are becoming two-faced. They want to be in both worlds: With God and Satan. Satan uses false teaching to get people out of the Truth in what Jesus Christ told us. The Holy Bible is His letter to us. The Holy Bible is “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth” (B.I.B.L.E.). The Holy Bible says everything we need to know about false teaching and prophets.
I’ve also learned that Good and Bad fruit refers to moral behavior. What are these prophets moral behavior looks like? Do they lust after a woman? Do they follow God’s commandments? How do they come across with their jokes: are they perverted? Do they swear constantly without remorse and respect for others?
Not only is it about the moral issue but even if they are spiritually reborn into the Family of God. Have they received Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord? Have they admitted they are a sinner and it’s only through Jesus Christ that we can be saved?
The Bible shows us and guides us to be careful of false teachings and religions who counterfeit the word of God. I choose to follow the Word of God, the Bible in all of my postings on this blog. When I get to heaven, I want to hear those words “Well done faithful child. Enter thy presence of the Lord.”
I want to be faithful and learn what God loves and what his dislikes are. He hates what evil does to us and he hates things that get us distracted away from Him. I for one have canceled to watch anything from Hollywood. I only watch Christian films. I don’t like how Hollywood has become. It’s all corrupt and nothing glorifies God anymore in there movies. They love to use God’s name vainly and using vulgar words. They also like to use lust in movies to have sexual relations and to show it. It’s true they may have ratings Rated14+ or 18+ but why on earth do we ever need to watch such trash. Would you go up to a bedroom window and look inside to watch a couple having sex? Many like the idea of watching those kinds of movies but it goes against God’s morals. He loves when couples stay pure. Watching it on TV or in a movie should never be allowed on the screen. Sex is love between a man and woman in their marriage. Not to show to the whole world what they are doing behind a closed door. If you are watching such trash, please answer this to yourself: would I watch this movie if Jesus was sitting with me?
I don’t like to discuss such things but it’s getting very bad and seems to be getting worse each year. No one wants to know the truth anymore and no one likes the idea of purity anymore. I care to stand to be pure, even if it means standing alone. I stay pure because that is what God wants. He wants His people to stay pure too, and for those who are playing with such sin to stop. Playing movies that are vulgar, immoral and sexually oriented is off the charts for me. I go to sites that help you to see what is in the movie if it has “Oh my g*d” I’m not going to watch it. If it has a part in the film where a girl and boy going in a room…you obviously know what they are doing…and they do it with no remorse afterwards…no thank you.
False teachers and prophets will be okay with anything that is being pushed in movies today. They’ll say everyone is doing it and the excuses go on and on.
You’ll know by the person’s fruit in where they stand, stay close to Christ and if you are not saved yet, this is a perfect time to share with you that all these things that I have said, are becoming true and Jesus Christ is coming soon. The question I have for you is…are you ready? Are you saved? Don’t put it off, tomorrow may be too late.
