Keep away from wicked leaders!
"If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness...supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself." 1 Timothy 6:3,5
Believers need to learn to withdraw themselves from people, or churches that don’t anymore serve their purpose. Some churches you can’t even tell what purpose they serve; they neither have a doctrine of godliness nor that of sin. I know one church which is superstitious, they don't know how to tell the truth, they don’t even bind devils nor mention Satan when they pray. To cut the long story short, to them what they call Good News is just a means of making money. Paul says from such keep away, my friend!
Keep away from perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and men "destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself."
Stay away from prosperity or motivational prophets. Paul says, "Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; [Tell those prophets] That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life." 1 Timothy 6:17-19
"For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1 Timothy 6:7-10
"But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness." 1 Timothy 6:11. Keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ!
