False Prophets: Matthew 24:11
“11) Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.” Matthew‬ ‭24‬:‭11‬ ‭
The next sign Jesus spoke of was false prophets. The past generation has seen an unprecedented spike in religious cults and isms. There are more false teachers today than any time in history.
But technically, this verse is much broader than just religious false prophets. Jesus was talking about the rise of “heralds of deception.” These people could be secular or sacred.
When this view is adopted, it would include people like Karl Marx, Charles Darwin, John Dewy, Sigmund Freud, George Soros and Richard Dawkins. The list could go on and on. It would include any teaching or doctrine aligned against biblical Christianity.
The past one hundred years now comes into focus with stunning clarity. This time frame has seen the rise of communism, naturalism, humanism, Freudian psychology, atheism, critical race theory, gender confusion and woke culture. These are merely the tip of the iceberg. These movements are all aligned against the truth. These constitute another intense labor contraction that summarizes the times we are living in and modernism.
