Defending Discernment - The Troubler of the Church

By       (Page 4 of 4 pages)   1 comment

Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you, for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets. - Luke 6:26 (ESV)

The term woe means a pronouncement of judgment. The judgment there is against being spoken well of when not deserved. The example provided by Jesus? The fact that the Israelites in the Old Testament always spoke well of the false prophets of their day. They followed them just as much as the apostate church follows false teachers today. Beloved, we are not supposed to speak well of those that are in opposition to Christ. I know it can be difficult because these are the popular "ministries" of our day but popularity with the world should tell us something, no? Joel Osteen does not draw tens of thousands of people because he is presenting the gospel. Discernment separates truth from lies. Good from evil. Right from not quite right. False teachers and prophets deserve our disdain. They deserve our mockery. They deserve the working end of the shepherd's rod, nothing less. Nothing more.
