“They have lied about the LORD, And said, ‘It is not He. Neither will evil come upon us, Nor shall we see sword or famine. And the prophets become wind, For the word is not in them” (Jeremiah 5:12-13 NKJV). False preachers teach false ideas and cause people to falsely believe that: (1) God either doesn’t exist, or doesn’t care, or doesn’t help; (2) nothing bad can happen to those who obey God. This causes frustration and rejection when something bad does happen! (3) People who listen to them are “tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting” (Ephesians 4:14 NKJV). (4) Lies about God are not based in the Word of God, the Bible.
