I know people who put their faith in a man claiming to be a prophet. When people give away their personal relationship with God to follow someone wicked, it’s tragic. I won’t name names out of respect for all parties, but I will say this: Critically think; deeply engage with the divine; and always judge self-acclaimed holy people by their fruits.
There are false prophets among us
They pitch a promised land, seek fame.
Under the garnishments of truth
Lies spoiled milk and aspartame.
They ask for money and prayers.
They treat God and wealth as the same.
They insist that it’s not a cult.
Securing power is their aim.
Desperate people look for answers.
Parsimony can’t always claim
Veracity—just as fast food
Clogs the arteries, it’s a shame.
The sole spiritual nourishment
Is an inner-reflection game.
The rules are simple: There are none.
And they don’t need to be the same.
One thought on “Elymas Bar-Kim”
It is wise to study God’s Word before any judgement..but I agree that
no man should put his or her life in the hands of another-especially a
self-proclaimed prophet. I am secure with my relationship with God and
have no complaint with one’s who say they have a higher calling with God. So be it. I just keep living my life for God & know who to pray to.
It is simple really. I know that my Redeemer lives, the one who is called Jesus Christ.
