From Father Fasching

The Old Testament contains many references to false prophets. The early Church Fathers saw these false prophets as heretics who produce no fruit. In contrast, a person who truly speaks the things of God shows faith, hope, charity, peace and understanding. A false prophet speaks of division, hatred, resentment, pride and sensuality (Galatians 5:16-25). A false prophet separates the people of God from the Magisterium of the Church, through which we receive Christ’s teaching. Christ clearly states that these heretics and deceivers are destined for eternal perdition. Do you know any people who teach contrary to the Magisterium and oppose the Vicar of Christ on earth? We must continue to pray for such as these.

If our prayer is to be genuine, we must also strive to do God’s will. Our actions must be consistent with what we say. “The Kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power” (1Cor 4:20); “Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves” (Jas 1:22).

In Christ,

Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
