It would be so easy, to tear into many groups, individuals and beliefs, shredding them like hamburger. They are evil, sometiimes openly so, others coating it so that it drips with sugar. It may taste rich and sweet as it goes down, but turns into a bitter evil poison in your soul. False prophets and teachers, spreading their evil across the internet and air waves, in the bookstores, and even in your churches and schools. Be careful who you listen too, make sure they speak the truth. This applies to everyone, nothing is to be accepted without your knowing what they say is Truth!
Most folks will have a list of groups or people come to mind when reading this. And among Christians, we would find many repeated over and over. Yet they find no lack of followers, or those willing to invite them in listening to their every word. There is something very wrong within the church when these false prophets and teachers have such an easy time spreading their lies. It is long past time for the truth to take first place in and out of the church. When the Truth is your foundation, the whole building will be strong, make sure Christ is your cornerstone.
Sometimes things are just local custom or tradition, often there is nothing wrong with them. But neither custom nor tradition is ever to be allowed to take the place of Truth. The truth must always come first, and Jesus Christ is the Truth. If anything does not agree with the teachings Christ gave to us, it must be thrown out as false doctrine, do not allow such teachers to even open their mouth within your churches, schools or homes. I can only hope that all of you have taken the time to know the Truth, and keep it constantly in your soul. It is your major defense against all forms of evil. And it is your sword with which to fight against evil.
