While browsing in a South Dakota souvenir shop, I ran across some fool’s gold. The shopkeepers weren’t trying to palm this shiny stuff off on a gullible public. It was clearly labeled.
Properly labeled fool’s gold fools no one. It’s those deceptively packaged scams we must be so wary of.
While slick operators are out for our money, Satan is out for our souls (2 Corinthians 11:3-4, 13-15).
Jesus warned of “false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15).
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1).
Let the buyer beware.
