Jesus warned us that the world listens to false teachers and that they are popular!
The world listens to them because these popular so-called prophets are speaking exactly as the world.
1 John 4:5
The world loves the Pope, the Vatican, the Prosperity preachers, those who teach universalism and ecumenism, etc.
Proverbs 27:5 & Proverbs 28:23 tell us that open rebuke of falsehoods is more esteemed by God than courting the favor of ‘man’.
Who do YOU please? Whose opinion matters?
