    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Sunday, October 6
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Be on the watch for the false prophets that come to you in sheep’s covering.—Matt. 7:15. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]What is involved in avoiding[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] false teachers? We do not receive[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] them into our homes or greet[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]them. We also refuse to read their[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] literature, watch TV programs[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] that feature them, examine their[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Web sites, or add our comments to[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] their blogs. Why do we take such[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] a firm stand?

    Because of love.

    We
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] love [/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]“the God of truth,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]†so we are[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] not interested in twisted teachings[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] that contradict his Word[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]of truth. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Ps. 31:5; John 17:17)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    We also love Jehovah’s organization,
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    through which we have been
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] taught thrilling truths—including[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Jehovah’s name and its meaning,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    God’s purpose for the earth,
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the condition of the dead, and the[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] hope of the resurrection.
    Can you
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] recall how you felt when you first[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] learned these and other precious[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] truths?
    Why, then, allow yourself
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] to be soured by anyone who[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] would denigrate the organization[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    through which you learned these
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] truths ? [/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]—John 6:66-69. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    The scripture at 1 John 4:1 comes to mind:

    "Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God, because many false prophets have gone forth into the world."
     
  3. Hi Wallflower:

    I think the use of the term "false prophet" in this scripture is meant to be hypothetical, as there would never be false prophets from within the Watchtower, God's only true and faithful slave. Hehe!
