Christ warns His disciples to beware of false prophets. What is the difference between a genuine prophet and a false prophet? Christ says you will know them by the fruits they produce. A person who genuinely speaks the things of God sows faith, hope, charity, peace and understanding. A false prophet, on the other hand, sows division, hatred, resentment, pride and sensuality. A false prophet separates the people of God from the Magisterium of the Church.
We know that Christ’s teaching is declared to the world through the teaching body of the Church. When we pray we must have a spirit that desires to unite our will to the will of God. We can be sure of the will of God when we adhere to the Magisterium of the Church. Christ speaks to us through our Holy Father, the Vicar of Christ on earth. We owe our Pope our prayers. We must beg God that our minds and hearts will always be in conformity with his.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
