13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
One of the characteristics of leaders like this is that they claim they, and they alone, have the truth about God. But one way to spot them is to ask what they think of Jesus Christ. They will never agree with what the Bible teaches: He was God’s only Son, who came down from heaven and saved us by His death on the cross. Nor will they agree that He was God’s final and complete revelation of Himself, and that “in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form” (Colossians 2:9).
Don’t be deceived by those who reject the Bible or twist its clear meaning, or claim the Bible needs the “wisdom” of some later prophet to make it complete. Instead, put your trust and faith in Christ, for He alone is able to save us, and He alone gives us hope of eternal life. Ask Him to come into your life right now.
Then ask God to help you find a church where Christ is central and the Bible is taught, so you can be “rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith” (Colossians 2:7).
