What God says about leading people astray?
In Micah 3: 1-12 here we have a story about the leaders of the church who was leading the people astray from God’s word. They were making the people comfortable in their sinful life style by speaking a message of false hope and security.
The leaders was encouraging the people to sin, because they refused to lead the people back to God. And because of their lifestyle God called Micah to be God’s messenger.
Pastors and prophets today have that same task. They must not bend to pressure even from within the church to conform to sinful beliefs, behaviors or lifestyles that are common in the world. Instead, they must be God’s voice for truth, righteousness and holiness.
