“Beware of false prophets.”False prophets are hard to detect. One knows they are false after the fact. A classic example is the struggle between Jeremiah and Hananiah. Both claimed to speak for God. Hananiah was proven wrong and Jeremiah right when Judeah fell into the Babylo nians.Jesus warns his followers to be discerning with regard to listening to a prophet and following him. Jesus describes false prophets as nice to look at, very attractive, very credible when they speak, but they are there to sweettalk the unsuspecting individuals to buy their rotten products or ideas, to destroy their families, the society, the Church and the environment.False prophets manifest them selves today by spreading false news, false hopes, and false alarms through their false sites in the so cial media.Each Christian must know that true prophets lead us to love Christ more, to listen to the Church’s teachings, to receive the sacra ments and to be charitable and merciful to others. They themselves are seen practicing their faith.Any teacher who teaches and practices otherwise is a false pro phet. Christians, beware of them.
