You might be a false teacher if:
• You are the star of your “ministry.”
• The beliefs and “theology” you teach contradict God’s.
• You not only refuse to condemn sin; you applaud it.
• You exalt certain passages of Scripture but ignore or reject the ones you don’t personally agree with.
•You teach that God is a personal genie who exists to grant our every desire, rather than the Lord whom we are called to worship, serve, and obey.
If this is you, you must know that your version of “Christianity” isn’t Christianity. It is self-worship. It is deception. And it is destroying the body of Christ.
If you are following one of these false teachers, whether they broadcast their bullhonkery from podcast mic or pulpit, well… stop it! Just because they give a good pep talk or make you laugh or understand that parenting is hard doesn’t mean they are fit to lead you spiritually. Good music doesn’t equal good theology. The ability to hype up peoples’ emotions is no replacement for sound Biblical teaching. And relatable doesn’t equal reliable.
“At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” -Matthew 24:10-13
