In their haste to garner praise of men, and lead uniformed and unwary sheep to destruction, Judas Goats (false messiahs, false prophets, false teachers and testators) also blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, saith the Lord.
"Thus we may see that the fulness of the Gospel will never be commonly accepted, and only a few faithful Saints will prove valiant to those principles. Popularity or common consent is not a measurement of God's prophets or principles. The Church may therefore choose or reject a truth or an error, a man of the world, or a prophet of God. Good spiritual leadership will encourage  God@s laws and will bring those laws and principles from Him to the people, while poor leadership will usually discard many of God's laws and principles. False leaders will teach contrary to former revelations. Such men will usually perpetrate their fraud by wrongly using their office or calling. They may claim the right to change God's laws on the basis of their "authority" or their "priesthood." They may vote unanimously in a council, or by popular vote and claim that such is "God's will." They may say that God will never allow them to be led wrongly; and they may be so convinced of this position, that they assume infallibility or else infer that whatever they say, right or wrong, will be a blessing to those who obey. However, all such presumptions are not a substitute for the revelations of God. Political or religious leaders who teach contrary to correct principles are incapable of producing light for themselves, not to mention the masses of people who look to them for direction, They are not the Lord's "sheep"; they are the "goats"--Judas goats who lead the Lord's sheep to the slaughter. They may be blind to what they do; nevertheless, they will continue to lead for the honors of men and popular acclaim." Judas Iscariot; Ogden Kraut
