Most Christians tend to be weak regarding the discernment of underlying attitudes, motivations, and agendas. Heresies, doctrines of demons, and unbiblical spiritual manifestations abound. 


"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." - I John 4:1


If you question the liars and fakes, someone is likely to accuse you of intolerance or lack of compassion. But this sloppy Christianity is exploited by the devil. We need to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.


"...who  by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." - Hebrews 5:14 


I have seen trolls on Christian chat rooms who are there just to disrupt and annoy. When I expose them and request that they be banned, I often get "Steven don't be like that" or "we are praying for them" or "maybe he'll learn something here".


Immaturity and lack of teaching is rampant in the churches of America. Few are strong and bold enough to take a stand against trouble makers and clever demonic influencers. There is too much "seeker sensitivity" and pampering of those who do not seek the Lord.


We should improve our ability to see through the wiles of the devil. We need to be on guard against Satan's tricks and maneuvers. Years of Bible study, evangelism, and prayer enable us to quickly spot things that are not right.


In this episode, we'll examine what spiritual discernment means in your own life, how to operate the revelation manifestation of discerning of spirits, and how to effectively confront and deal with the false prophets, deceivers, and disruptors, those who prey on the unsaved and on inexperienced believers.
