Many people are going to hell, and their mortal lives are destroyed, because a False Light has blinded them to the True Light.


When a person is groping for truth, seeking God,  craving salvation, and desperate for spiritual truth, a good presentation of the Gospel can reach their hearts. They know they're empty and need to be filled with God's power and rescued by His love.


But those who are satisfied with counterfeit religion, deceptive philosophy, or occult delusions will not be as receptive to God's Word as someone who is void of any semblance of spiritual teaching.


This is a very sad and difficult, the person who thinks they have found what they need, the man or woman who is no longer searching, who is smug and self-congratulatory, who is not interested in examining the claims of Christ.


Sometimes the False Light is a heretical form of Christianity, a devilish distortion of Bible teachings, or a seemingly orthodox church that has been corrupted.


Other times the False Light is a pastor, founder of a ministry, popular Christian author, or religious scholar that people admire and idolize, someone who has taken the place of the Lord, in a subtle or public manner.


When the tragic day arrives that the followers see that the leader is misleading, hypocritical, or sinful, they may lose their faith in God and descend into spiritual numbness and moral apathy. The end result can be a personal wickedness that undoes all the spiritual gains that were achieved, and a feeling of futility.


Beware of following any human being, metaphysical  tradition, or religious institution to the point of relying totally on them for spiritual guidance.


Learn how to be spiritually independent and secure in the Lord Jesus Christ as your only leader and guide.
