God's Sword of Truth - The Word
"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." - II Peter 2:1

Take heed that no man deceive you....for there are many Angels of Light that Satan is using. One way is through the destructive heresies being taught by his many false teachers/ministers on television. The TV preachers, better known as money makers, or as the Word states "the money changers" will sell or exploit any type of merchandise they can in order to make money - read John 2:14-16 and Matt. 21:12. They preach another gospel, a financial go$pel, a go$pel of the good life on this earth - THEIR$!
These TV preacher$ own big house$, have large bank account$ and own much property. They have electrical wire fenced property with guard dogs to guard it. What are they afraid of? Where is all this in God's Word? They certainly have nothing "common" with those they teach, do they? Read what the Word says - Acts 4:32 - "And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common." Do you believe that these false teachers would share everything that they own with the body of Christ? I think not!
They have a social, private interpretation of the gospel, and want you to join them and support them with your money. However, they do not want to hear what your "religion" is. They need you for their life style. These money changers pollute the souls who watch them on TV and send them money or buy their books. They sell a "counterfeit" gospel to all those who are easily persuaded to their false belief. Jesus drove them out of the temple. I say to you "give them nothing".
They should live by faith and give freely the gospel of salvation as it was given to all men. I give the gospel of Jesus Christ freely, and charge nothing, to all who will listen. I have never charged anything, and never will...because SALVATION IS FREE. These false teachers say they are called of God and do His work and teach faith, etc., etc., but their gospel is of the devil and they teach a "false christ". They exploit weak people, who like themselves live in the flesh and the world. Their followers live on "Emotionalism" and have itching ears.
All false teachers: (1)Get along with each other and all other religions....(2)Have fellowship with other false teachers (even though they do not agree with each other)....(3)Teach all kinds of heretical doctrines....(4)And deceive many (millions) with their lying wonders and false, hopeless miracles of Satan. Is this the Word of God?
Look at their life style, the rich clothes they wear when in front of the cameras, and the jewelry they display - "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." - I John 2:15. Now look to the Word and see how Jesus' followers walked in the world. Jesus stated, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." -John 15:18. Which Spirit are you?
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" - I Tim. 4:1
You must be responsible enough to watch and discern who your schoolmaster is and who he is led by. It must be the Holy Spirit Who teaches and leads, not the spirit of anti-christ. Let your heart guide you, not your head. Do not allow the outward appearance of false teachers of light, who are of the devil, deceive you. "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." - Romans 12:2. You can know the truth and it can set you free.
"...If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." - John 8:31-32.
