False teachers are men-pleasers (Gal. 1:10; 1 Thess. 2:1-4). They preach more to please the ear than to profit the heart: “Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophecy no unto us right things: speak to us smooth things; prophecy deceits”‘ (Isa. 30:10). “A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means, and my people love to have it so. And what will you do in the end thereof?” (Jer. 5:30,31). They handle holy things rather with wit and dalliance (playful come-on) then with fear and reverence. False teachers are soul-undoers. They are like evil chirurgeons, that skin over the wound, but never heal it. Flattery undid Ahab and Herod, Nero and Alexander. False teachers are hell’s greatest enrichers. Non acerba, sed blanda, Not bitter, but flattering words do all the mischief, said Valerian, the Roman emperor. Such smooth teachers are sweet soul-poisoners (Jer. 23:16,17).
Thousands of our kababayans in southern Philippines are currently displaced in hundreds of evacuation centers as Typhoon Pablo (international name: Bopha) continues to intensify.
Strong winds are wreaking havoc in Western Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Davao, and Caraga regions, while heavy rains are causing rivers and waterways to swell.
Operation Blessing’s disaster relief team is now monitoring and preparing for a typhoon relief mission to help evacuees and affected families.
