"Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" (Matthew 12:34).

Jesus is saying that evil people who claim to be know-it-all Super-Christians are the most dangerous and evil of all. They will lead many sheep astray by their false humility and false holiness. They appear to be holy but their burdens are heavy.

"I go on mission trips to far-away places. I volunteer at the local soup kitchen. I try to make this world a better place." That may be all well and good but if those works are borne from proud intentions they will profit you nothing.

"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ" (Galatians 2:16a).

Some false Christians hate faith and they command different actions of justification. Study and prayer have been replaced by diet and exercise as the new pillars of their "super" faith. Instead of focusing on evil things that defile the spirit they focus on things they perceive will defile the flesh: Yogurt replaces ice cream, yoga replaces fellowship with loved ones, etc.

Their twisted view of Christian "faith" conforms to another group of false Christians who roamed the earth some two thousand years ago. "They were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel" (Galatians 2:14a), either.

The apostle Paul warned Timothy of the rise of our generation of Super-Christians cut from the same mold as those of his day: "Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth" (1 Timothy 4:1-3).

The false Christianity described by Paul above knows no denominational boundaries. These demonic doctrines have permeated across continents and oceans and infected down to even the smallest of congregations.

And now the untruth of a partial Rapture doctrine is apparently springing forth from this same cult. It is very sad, very clever, and very destructive. Don"t buy into it.

"So that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 1:7-8).

So do you need to drink the blood of vipers or smear it over your first born calf or maybe just avoid it when your eating it?
Maybe you need to spray it around the room to defeat the evil spirits of the common cold?
Can you elaborate?
