  • 2 Peter 2 1-2 Peter 2 3
    But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves.Many will follow their unrestrained ways, and the way of truth will be blasphemed because of them.They will exploit you in their greed with deceptive words. Their condemnation, pronounced long ago, is not idle, and their destruction does not sleep.
  • Colossians 2:8
    Be careful that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit based on human tradition, based on the elemental forces of the world, and not based on Christ.
  • Acts 20:29-31
    I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.And men will rise up from your own number with deviant doctrines to lure the disciples into following them.Therefore be on the alert, remembering that night and day for three years I did not stop warning each one of you with tears.

    “ If a prophet or someone who has dreams arises among you and proclaims a sign or wonder to you,and that sign or wonder he has promised you comes about, but he says,‘ Let us follow other gods,’ which you have not known,‘ and let us worship them,’do not listen to that prophet’s words or to that dreamer. For the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul.
  • 2 Corinthians 11 13-2 Corinthians 11 15
    For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.And no wonder! For Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.So it is no great thing if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their destiny will be according to their works.

  • Micah 3:5-7
    This is what the Lord says concerning the prophets who lead my people astray, who proclaim peace when they have food to sink their teeth into but declare war against the one who puts nothing in their mouths.Therefore, it will be night for you— without visions; it will grow dark for you— without divination. The sun will set on these prophets, and the daylight will turn black over them.Then the seers will be ashamed and the diviners disappointed. They will all cover their mouths because there will be no answer from God.

  • Revelation 13:11-17
    Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon.He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.He also performs great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in front of people.He deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that he is permitted to perform on behalf of the beast, telling those who live on the earth to make an image of the beast who had the sword wound and yet lived.He was permitted to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.And he requires everyone— small and great, rich and poor, free and slave— to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of his name.

  • Jeremiah 14:14-16
    But the Lord said to me,“ These prophets are prophesying a lie in My name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, worthless divination, the deceit of their own minds.“ Therefore, this is what the Lord says concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name, though I did not send them, and who say,‘ There will never be sword or famine in this land.’ By sword and famine these prophets will meet their end.The people they are prophesying to will be thrown into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword. There will be no one to bury them— they, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. I will pour out their own evil on them.”
  • Jeremiah 23:13-16
    Among the prophets of Samaria I saw something disgusting: They prophesied by Baal and led My people Israel astray.Among the prophets of Jerusalem also I saw a horrible thing: They commit adultery and walk in lies. They strengthen the hands of evildoers, and none turns his back on evil. They are all like Sodom to Me; Jerusalem’s residents are like Gomorrah.Therefore, this is what the Lord of Hosts says concerning the prophets: I am about to feed them wormwood and give them poisoned water to drink, for from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has spread throughout the land.This is what the Lord of Hosts says:“ Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They are making you worthless. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the Lord’s mouth.
  • 2 Timothy 3 5-2 Timothy 3 9
    holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!For among them are those who worm their way into households and capture idle women burdened down with sins, led along by a variety of passions,always learning and never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.Just as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men who are corrupt in mind, worthless in regard to the faith.But they will not make further progress, for their lack of understanding will be clear to all, as theirs was also.
  • Mark 12:38-40
    He also said in His teaching,“ Beware of the scribes, who want to go around in long robes, and who want greetings in the marketplaces,the front seats in the synagogues, and the places of honor at banquets.They devour widows’ houses and say long prayers just for show. These will receive harsher punishment.”
