In a patriarchal society like ours, where people are desperate for miracles, they blindly follow pastors who lead them astray; the pastor who sprayed people with Doom ordered people to eat snakes, drink petrol or claimed to raise a “dead” man from a coffin; the pastors who instead of giving comfort to women, are accused of taking advantage of them and even raping them. They risk their lives by eating and drinking things they know are harmful to their health or allow themselves to be humiliated since they get their desired miracles, taking these deadly risks means nothing to them.
In these last days, the Scripture warns that false prophets will arise and deceive many. Believers who are not well-grounded make easy targets for doctrines that may sound good but are filled with error. The holy book advises that we should test all spirit to know if they are of God.
We must sharpen our awareness and be alert — not just for ourselves but for our loved ones who might otherwise be drawn to a false prophet.
In this episode Grace and Udoka discuss ways we can help ourselves and reduce the existence of fake prophets in our society.
