False prophets are sneaky–apparently, they all have a dose of the “sneaky squid spirit.” They desperately want to be normalized within mainstream Evangelicalism so they subtly insert their error wherever they possibly can.
But to the trained eye of discernment, people like you and I will always pick up on it.
“But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.” –Hebrews 5:14
Recently, at a Jesus Culture/Bethel event, Bethel Pastor, Matt Molt, slipped in a quick excuse for “getting prophetic words wrong” as he invoked the late, great Charles Spurgeon in an attempt to slip it in. Of course, some of the things he was saying in the sermon were true; but the greater error is nothing more than an excuse for what he and his movement practice constantly: false prophecy.
Of course, Charles Spurgeon would never agree with this. In fact, Spurgeon also famously quoted that “Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right.”
