Certain prophets

After Matthew 7:13-14

False prophets are

a dime a dozen.

They speak at TED

conferences, they

write books, they

have large followings

in Instagram and

twitter, people

sharing, liking, 

retweeting everything

they hear, everything

they see. Too often,

false prophets occupy

a pulpit, speaking

words of gold and

silver, words like

gilded thorns, thistles,

rotting fruit, words 

that appeal like

the siren’s call,

the call of telling

you what you want

to hear. Consider

what they create, 

what they produce:

weakness, rottenness,

Indeed, Glynn! This world is full of those who claim to hold the truth, when in reality, only One does.
