The most negatively impacting, attempted change a minister of God's Word can do, is to add-to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, is to change a major principle(s) in The Gospel of Jesus Christ - Galatians 1:8-9 and Revelation 22:19). Ministers who tout excessively, the idea of material blessings that are returned to those who give into their ministries, returned to them many times greater than the amount they gift or tithe to them, are false preachers of "the gospel of riches). A spiritual blessing may actually be the greater need for a giver into a ministry! This "perverted version" of the Gospel, which is supposed to center on salvation - eternal life in Jesus Christ is definitely in the heresy - false doctrine category.

I give other examples in this video regarding false teachings and how false ministers will display "fruits" that expose them as "wolves in sheep's clothing). I also read scriptures that were not included in my previous video on this subject (link to both, at end of this article).

Some false doctrines attempt to teach Christians how to perform supernatural acts that are actually things only God can grant to them, according to his will, wisdom and in his timing. There are many such things being taught, preached and prophesied that are harmful to those willing to listen and take heed to them (giving them credence/importance).

Some truly sincere Word of God ministers are being called "false", when in fact they are simply in error. To knock down a young minister who is new to teaching/preaching, because they inadvertently get something wrong regarding God's Holy Scriptures, is to be overly zealous to find false teaching in minister's sermons. At the same time, we are to beware of false Bible teachers who genuinely seek to deceive their listeners.

Colossians 2:8 - "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."

Author's Bio: 

I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies (33 college credits), and I completed "Bible Survey" with Assemblies of God - Berean College. I consider myself a "Bapticostal" (a Baptist also having Pentecostal beliefs). Bible studies are one of my most-covered book subjects. I am, however, careful to only address those subjects I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in 1983 for approximately 18 years. During, between and after youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well, including interim pastoring and retirement home ministry. MOST IMPOTANTLY, I am a redeemed man, who has received salvation by acceptance of Jesus Christ (John 3:16) and what he did for me in shedding his blood and dying for me on the cross, and in his resurrection from the dead, giving me the promise of eternal life, purely by grace; not due to anything I have done, other than to accept it freely.
