The false witnesses among us are deceiving many,advocating hate,retaliation and war instead of love,forgiveness and peace, which is why Jesus gave us this warning which most significantly is almost never repeated in most churches:
Matthew 7:14-16 (Contemporary English Version)
14But the gate to life is very narrow. The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it.
15Watch out for false prophets! They dress up like sheep, but inside they are wolves who have come to attack you. 16You can tell what they are by what they do. No one picks grapes or figs from thorn bushes.
To the contrary many ministers teach that good works are completely unnecessary for Christians which helps to explain why there is so much poverty,desperation and abject misery in the world. Those who promote this evil false teaching put themselves in the spiritual wolf mode mentioned in verse 15 , because they are trying to prevent members of their churches from obtaining God's blessings.
Matthew 16:26-27 (New King James Version)
26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.
