One of the main challenges that the church has faced over the centuries is that of false teachers and prophets. Even today, the church is not immune to them. The most challenging thing is that these false teachers and prophets come in sheep’s skin so that it’s hard to recognize them at first sight.
This important truth should always been borne in mind by every Christian. False teacher or prophets do not come giving out brochures and declaring to you that they are fake teachers. They don’t blow trumpets and proclaim on top of their voice that there are bogus prophets neither do they put on badges on their coats marked with brighter colors “False Teacher or Prophet.” They all come as angels of light.
However, the good news is that these false teachers and prophets cannot go for long without their true colors being revealed. This is why Christ assured us: “By their fruits you shall know them.”
By this I don’t intend to encourage that you doubt every servant of God but with godly wisdom observe their fruits. For sure this truth remains: false teachers will always be with us but thank God they cannot fool God.
“But you beloved, build yourself up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life,” (Jude 20).
