“You can believe in whatsoever you like, but the truth remains the truth, no matter how sweet the lie may taste.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

H.L. Mencken
“The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve. This is true even of the pious brethren who carry the gospel to foreign parts.”
H.L. Mencken, Minority Report

Zeena Schreck
“Self proclamation of authoritative titles is a common phenomenon among religious and/or occult sect leaders. A cursory survey of this primarily 20th century phenomenon will instantly reveal a multitude of self-declared Masters, High Priests, gurus, Ipsissimi, Bhaghwani, etc.. I am pleased that I cannot count myself among such types. Legitimate religious teachers and scholars know that a genuine spiritual leader is one whose calling to lead is first noticed by those outside of him or herself based on certain qualities, abilities, and actions and then must subsequently be accepted by the individual in question as his or her destiny. This contrasts with those whose will to lead is born simply out of the mundane wish to be a leader. In such cases the goal being to reap the rewards a title brings without the hard work and the innate, manifest qualities which validate the position; in short what might be considered a 'false prophet'."

Friedrich Nietzsche
“When a man feels that he has a divine mission, say to lift up, to save or to liberate mankind‐‐when a man feels the divine spark in his heart and believes that he is the mouthpiece of supernatural imperatives‐‐ when such a mission in. flames him, it is only natural that he should stand beyond all merely reasonable standards of judgment. He feels that he is himself sanctified by this mission, that he is himself a type of a higher order! . . . What has a priest to do with philosophy! He stands far above it!‐‐And hitherto the priest has ruled!‐‐He has determined the meaning of "true" and "not true"!”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Criss Jami
“What we fail to realize is we often become like Pharisees in our ruthless attempts to identify Pharisees (and impostors). While indeed some people use the old laws of religious pride to tear down men of God, others use the new laws of anti-religious anger to tear down men of God.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Christina Engela
“It seems to me that those who claim to be 'true' and 'bible believing' Christians and yet spend all their time and energy spreading unhappiness and hatred for others - and are themselves consumed by it - are by the very definition of the term - false prophets.”
Christina Engela, For Love of Leelah

“A preacher shouldn't preach just to make you feel good. Then it's about the money not about the teach. He should preach the truth because the truth shall set you free.”
Alcurtis Turner

Felix Wantang
“Atheists are not the enemy; the real enemy knows Jesus Christ. Satan and all false prophets know very well that Jesus came from heaven, but still reject him. Matthew 10:36”
Felix Wantang, God's Blueprint of the Holy Bible

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“Pantheists creep into the ministry, but they are generally cunning enough to concede the bredath of their minds beneath Christian phraseology.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Lectures to My Students

“So many people concentrate on knowing who a good preacher or a bad preacher is and so many people concentrate on knowing what the word of God is! The former is good but the latter is noble. The latter is the best answer to the former. The real duty of man is never to know man but to know God through Christ Jesus! Knowing the word of God is the true way to knowing God!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“False prophet: A prophet whose god is not yet known”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

“Seek comfort in the warmth of the morality of your choosing. Not in the depravity and fear of lost causes, in which you should turn away, before it sees you, as well.

- Plight, 2015”
Don Swann II

Criss Jami
“Heresy would like to think of itself as 'invented Truth'. But of course, all Reason and Logic would agree that no man can ever create Truth; he can only discover it. If heresy were ever at all beneficial, God would use it really to bring one right back to Truth, as countless 'inventions' have brought men to discovery.”
Criss Jami

“In this perilous times, we have more preachers of the Word than doers of thw Word. In other words, Not all preachers are doers.
May God may you and I doers of the Word”
Abegunde Sunday O.

“Modern infatuation with angels is based on imagery that is far removed from Psalm 103’s depiction of angels as 'mighty ones who do his bidding.' With the loss of knowledge and respect for scriptures has come a greatly demeaned understanding of spiritual realities, especially those concerned with supernatural occurrences.”
Janice B Brown

“The Word of GOD is Superior to the inferior words of men and the words of every false prophet and the teachings of every false religion.”
Errol Anthony Smythe.

“Prophecy is True and Sacred and should never be mishandled by people who have no business speaking about Sacred Things in GOD'S Name.”
Errol Anthony Smythe.

“Never, ever, trust a man who is willing to die in glory but is unable to live with pride.”
Mike Klepper

Criss Jami
“A spirit ushered by false teachings is like a body nourished by sweets. The adult, as opposed to the child, will come to understand reasons one cannot live a healthy existence on nothing but candy; so likewise, the Christian must come to understand that one cannot know and love the will of God under false doctrine.”
Criss Jami

Mark Hitchcock
“The greatest danger to the church today is not humanism, paganism, atheism or agnosticism. The greatest danger is not increasing hostility against our faith from the culture. Our greatest danger is apostasy on the inside, arising from false teachers- theological liberals who deny and distort biblical doctrine and lead others down the same path.”
Mark Hitchcock, The Coming Apostasy: Exposing the Sabotage of Christianity from Within
