False teachers and prophets think of themselves as so special and bright. They “subtly introduce destructive heresies.” “By an act of human will” they make Scripture say what they damn well want it to say. And shallow thinkers follow after them.
It is totally biblical to name names and call-out false teachers, phoney baloney prophets, and false movements. We are encouraged to know well the doctrines of the Bible, so that we ourselves are capable of recognizing when teachers go astray from them. We are warned that teachers will go beyond what Scripture so clearly states, (giving us “Beyond the Burger” varieties).
This article, A glossary of new apostolic reformation terminology, is by Rick Becker over at his site, Famine In The Land. Becker’s content is shared here with the intent to further warn the Church about false teachers. “Words” make a difference. And these terms used by NAR teachers are leading people into false teachings.
Seeing clearly now in these End Times is so very difficult. Misinformation floods our mind threatening to throw our thinking every which way. It is easy to get caught-up in questioning the clear teachings in the Bible. Who are we to believe? If we have made a decisive decision to follow Christ, the way is […]

Be ready! We are told how to understand the mystery of “the sign of Your coming”, and “the end of the age”. Jesus and Paul solve the mystery for us. Let’s examine (1) the words of Jesus in Matthew 24, and then (2) the Apostle Paul’s words in 2 Thessalonians 2. The mystery is not all that complicated now that we are seeing all these signs given to us by God in these end days.
2 Timothy 4:3 Amplified Bible (AMP) 3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to […]
Entering the earthly gate to deception, false teachings and rejection by God. Imagine, upon arrival to the Portals of Heaven, and there you are… personally with God Almighty who is sitting on His Throne. What will He say to you? He will speak to us all.

“Woe (judgment is coming) to the foolish prophets who are following their own spirit [claiming to have seen things] but have [in fact] seen nothing. – Ezekiel 13:3. This is the Lord God talking, from a passage in Ezekiel. He wanted us to know about the dangers of foolish false prophets today.
What does it mean to “fight the good fight”? What fight are we in, as believers? Of course, if we are not truly following Christ, then it doesn’t change things one way or the other – whether we fight the good fight or not. But, for those who follow Christ sincerely, it is incumbent upon […]
Featured Image: The Walking Dead. False teachers don’t come looking like this! If they did – we’d know to stay away from their teachings! They come to churches “dressed as sheep [appearing gentle and innocent]” but actually on the inside they are horrible, “ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7: verse 15). What are actual false teachings “out […]
Biblical texts about false prophets, false spirits, and their false teachings The Bible warns us about the increasing danger of false teachings creeping into our churches, of false teachers among us. Way back in Old Testament times this was a problem. See here: Deuteronomy 13:1-5 Amplified Bible (AMP) 13 “If a prophet arises among you, or […]
…A condensed description by Jesus In Matthew 23 Jesus called out the spiritual leaders of His day, calling them all kinds of evil: hypocrites, self-righteous, blind guides, fools, blind men, spiritually blind men, full of extortion, full of robbery, full of self-indulgence (unrestrained greed), full of everything unclean. Here, quoted excerpts of actual verses: Matthew 23 […]
Editor’s Note: This is a warning to the Church against false teachers – like John Pavlovitz. In this day of instant communication, rarely deeply thought through, we need to be careful who we listen to. I feel a heavy responsibility to speak out — because of today’s easy access to false teachers. They are online. […]
“…with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition.” – 2 Timothy 2: verse 25 Pointing out these things. The Bible warns us to keep a good look out for false teachers and their bogus teachings and harmful practices. Since much of this is online, I think we must warn about them – online. 2 Corinthians […]
