False doctrine spreading in the bloodstreams of people,
looking to believe in anything…..
Just a form of the truth burning down villages
massacring children, desecrating marriages,
dying like fruit that fell from the tree.

We’re in a ”feel good” society, with really good imposters
disguised as ministers, disguised as sheep,
but are worse than wolves that are rabid.
The Word regarded as an instrument of influence
instead of life everlasting,
so respect for the privilege of being chosen by God
means nothing.

Teachers who have never been students
abuse the gift they have been given…
someone else blindly trusts in them,
unaware they are not being instructed from Scripture.
Blindly leading the blind into a pit,
giving the enemy a place to rest instead of resisting him.

There’s no accountability, no correction….
Sadly watching the thirsty misled into drinking poison
like it’s the water of life, trying to show them otherwise,
but some people are content with a little darkness
sprinkled around light.

I pray, hoping the truth frees them so they’d receive the Word
with an open heart instead of a matter of opinion,
because disaster awaits them that tamper with the Word.
