A few days ago while leaving the bank me and my mom came across a family friend.He said how one of his son’s friends got his son carried away with how the world was going to end,having to go to like mountain in Africa,not eating anymore meat etc.One of the things that I remember my mom replying is her telling him to tell his son to actually read the Bible,which is why I think later on that night she called me and my brother to listen to a Biblical reading (I remember she read the one about being “alert because the Lord can come like a thief in the night” and maybe another one though I cant remember which one
_ ) when she asked how when it happens how to tell apart false prophets claiming to be Christ from the real one.I said I would know that there not Christ b/c I’d ask “can you take away all my sin” when I know they can’t b/c there not Christ* and taking away sin is something the Evil One can’t do.
She said no b/c there’ll be ppl who can give me the sensation that my sin is being taken away.I found it sort of “cute” how she said no to that and she kept on reffering to the changes in nature like "the stars falling from the heavens " ^-^ .He interpretation though and not mine,eh?.I guess my mom’s not as much a contextualist :shrug: "^-^ ?.
*I had " D’oh ! >_< " moment in my mind after when I thought about how ppl who aren’t Christ take away my sin all the time (I’m referring to priests who are being confessors).
Anyhow my question is how are you able to tell apart a false prophet claiming to be Christ form the true Lord?.Saying “you would be one already know what’s in my heart” before walking away and seeing if he’ll do anything about it? :shrug:.
