This is a wonderful article, and full of truth though I do have to admit that it hurt a little when you mentioned that people who fall for these deceivers are those who are not grounded in the word of God (but I know sometimes truth hurts). About a year ago, I belonged to a little known cult under a false prophet named ‘Timothy’ (real name Speed) Rathbun. I had faithfully read my bible at 5am every day before I joined for the 5 years after I was born again. I was a devout Christian (and still am), but I have recently realized that by allowing me to go through that God has magnified for me the weaknesses in my faith and I believe that he will work to strengthen those areas. I found out that I had unknowingly been harboring a distorted view of God where I saw the need to constantly strive to do better in order to maintain his favour. The distorted view may have come from past experiences in my childhood which were so deeply ingrained that I didn’t really see them at all. I wish I didn’t but I can understand how people can fall for the lies, it’s almost like the scripture and lies fit with the distorted view we have and so it “makes sense”. After being in the group a while of course I just believed everything the prophet told us, I didn’t really question it and if I did I felt horrible as if I had doubted God himself. We were also taught that the bible was misinterpreted and so God was setting things straight through this prophet. It is terrible that this can happen to people, but I would have told you I was a very faith filled Christian before I fell for this and I loved walking with and getting to know God. I think a lot of us don’t really know we have those kind of distorted views and how they can really taint our thinking when we read scripture, and when someone preys on that it makes the gap even wider. I hope that many people read this article (I kind of wish I had beforehand), but I really hope people don’t judge those in these groups because though they maybe should have been more grounded in the word, it is easier to stand on the outside and say ‘it wouldn’t be me standing there’ than to actually be put in that position. Satan can be a very crafty deceiver; I truly hope we will all pray for those who are caught in the deception.

Bob, thank you immensely for this good work which makes available to us painstaking truth and undeniable revelations. It really baffles me how people can ignore the truth and follow after lies. Our prayer is that God will deliver all who have been caught in the webs of false doctrines and beliefs. JESUS remains the truth and the life! keep on spreading the truth. God bless you.
