“The Lord Jesus Christ said there would be many false prophets and false Christs, and there are.”
Anyone who thinks that the Holy Spirit would reveal “righteousness” apart from the Bible to a MAN, is a false prophet. Joseph Smith, Charles Taze Russell <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Taze_Russell>, and Mohammad thought that way too.
The second best way to spot a false prophet are the ones who right off the bat hatefully bash other Christians because they may see something differently. That is usually a man who feels himself not only superior to other men, but to God.
Another way to spot a false prophet is one who writes a “Statement of Faith” that reads like a copy of War and Peace. That is a man who loves nothing more than to hear himself talk. A man that loves to talk that much, receives no instruction from anyone else and knows little to nothing about the Bible.
Satan is alive and well and uses many devises to lure men in, and a “superiority complex” is an easy target. Jesus loves you. Perhaps you should develop an addiction to the Bible and find out what He has to say instead of finding so much instant gratification in hearing yourself talk.
