"But in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." (Matt. 15:9)
"Beware of false prophets, who
come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves." (Matt. 7:15)
"For I know this, that after my departure
savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things,
to draw away the disciples after themselves. Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night
and day with tears." (Acts 20:29-31)
"But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers
among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit
you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber."
(2 Peter 2:1-3)
do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world."
(1 John 4:1)
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they
have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside
to fables." (2 Tim. 4:3-4)
"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself
transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers
of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works." (2 Cor. 11:13-15)
