Be warned...

All other "religions" and "followings" have one thing in common...all those who started them were given special revelation that no one else was ever given and it always came from an "angel" who distorted, twisted, or just tossed out what was originally given by God. That person now had the "correct version" of what God really meant and everyone else before them (all the Prophets, Kings, Disciples, Apostles and many others over 1500 years and 66 books) had gotten it wrong. The new person coming on the scene is the only who has it right! Seriously that wouldn't even hold up in our own faulty courts.

Satan did this in Genesis 3 claiming to know better, understand better what God meant. Claiming they didn't hear what God said right, they got it all wrong and he knew the correct version so follow him. He's still doing it even today. He continues to masquerade as an angel of light. If anyone claims to speak for God but their teachings contradict, twist or if they just throw it out then the warning is "have nothing to do with them". Does God change His mind? Does He forget what He said already? Does He forget what He already did? Is He a man that He should lie?

They're false prophets masquerading as "servants of righteousness" and the one in control of them is not from God and many people will follow them. Satan knows the Bible better than most people. If he will distort and twist Scripture to Messiah Himself (Luke 4) who was the Word of God in the flesh (John 1) what makes us think he won't do it to us?

"for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve." 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

"Even some men from among your own selves will rise up and distort the truth in order to draw a following." - Acts 20:30

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel - which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ." - Galatians 1:7

"But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!" - Galatians 1:8

"I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people." - Romans 16:17-18

"But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping." 2 Peter 2:1-3

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them." - 2 Timothy 3:1-5

"Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry." 2 Timothy 4:2-5

What is our defense? Know the Bible. Read it. Study it. All of it! If we don't know it then we'll fall for anything.
