4 The prophets prophesy falsely. To prophesy is to preach; to instruct in religious doctrines; to interpret or explain Scripture or religious subjects; to exhort. 1 Cor 14:1-3. Every minister who teaches in error is a false prophet. Today's ministers are not only false prophets, but they rule over their flock through their position of supposed authority — and the people love it that way. Woe to the people, for they shall be held accountable for their foolish listening to lies that are contradicted throughout the Bible and that go against common sense. And what will you do in the end of it?
