Jeremiah 6:14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
The false prophets have lied. The lie makes the people feel better but doesn’t really change anything. They say there is peace when there is no peace. The lie will not hold. The truth will be seen. It will come out. You can’t lie and make the lie the truth.
That is what the false preachers do. They get you to feel good by not telling you the truth. The truth is that your sins have separated you from God. The truth is that you deserve death and hell. The truth is not pleasant, but it is necessary if you want help. You can get right when you acknowledge the truth and accept the gift of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ.
