How to Spot a False Prophet

After Paul's initial visit to Corinth false teachers crept into the young congregation. They did their best to discredit the Apostle Paul with all manner of criticisms. In 2 Corinthians Paul answered their complaints and contrasts himself with false prophets. 

  • True ministers focus on the eternal. False prophets focus on the external. 
  • True ministers seek to give riches. False prophets seek to gain riches. 
  • True ministers are wise to Satan. False prophets are deceived by Satan. 
  • True ministers (if pushed) boast of their sufferings. False prophets boast about themselves.
