Romans 16:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own bellies [lusts and desires]; and by fair speaking and captivating language deceive the hearts of the simple. [These appointed-by-men ministers are deceived to believe they are Christ's, even though the were not taught by the Lord's voice and light, not perfected by the Lord, not gifted with an authorized ministry, not sent by the Lord, and not speaking words from the Spirit of the Lord. They cause their followers to go to destruction and perish because they preach a false Jesus that excuses continuation of sin; thus they cause people to not hear the wonderful promises of the true gospel: release and freedom from even the desire to sin, union with God and Christ, and entrance in the kingdom of God, while on earth and then forever.]
