Stop the Stampede!


But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God's curse!  Galatians 1:8

Species: Sheep; Group Name: drove, flock, herd
Stop the stampede!  Lasso the leader that the rest are following!
Don't follow the herd off that cliff!  Warn others!  

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.  Ephesians 4:14

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 2 Peter 2:1-3

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits.  Matthew 7:15

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons  1 Timothy 4:1

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.  2 Timothy 4:3-4

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh.  2 John 1:7

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.  Colossians 2:8
