Isaiah 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; And to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, Speak unto us smooth things, Prophesy deceits:
God’s people wanted preachers that would tell them what they wanted to hear. They asked for men that would speak smooth things. They wanted to listen to lies instead of truth. The men of God were not to look for or find the truth. They were to be blind to the reality on purpose. They were asked not to tell them the right things.
This sounds so much like popular preaching today. Many no longer want to hear what the Bible has to say. They want to hear what they have to say. They want someone to tell them that they are happy with them.
What kind of church are you attending? Does your preacher preach what the Bible says? Is it Bible authority or his authority?
You need the truth. You need to hear what God says. Your future and that of your family are too important not to know better. Find a church that is entirely Bible-centered. Not one that makes you feel good but one that will tell you the truth.
