Friends in Christ Weekly Message
November 1, 2008

Here is God's Message to the prophets,
     the preachers who lie to my people:
    For as long as they're well paid and well fed,
         the prophets preach, 'Isn't life wonderful! Peace to all!'
    But if you don't pay up and jump on their bandwagon,
         their 'God bless you' turns into 'God damn you.'
    Therefore, you're going blind. You'll see nothing.
         You'll live in deep shadows and know nothing.
    The sun has set on the prophets.
         They've had their day; from now on it's night.
    Visionaries will be confused,
         experts will be all mixed up.
    They'll hide behind their reputations and make lame excuses
         to cover up their God-ignorance.
Micah 3:5-7 (Message*)

There are religious leaders in every generation like those of whom Micah speaks. Be discerning when you hear religious leaders speaking. Let Christ be your inward teacher, and don't let false prophets lead you astray.
