Almost every revered writing warns of phonies, the wanna-be prophets and self-proclaimed messiahs who claim to have been chosen by their particular deity to save us all. It happened in Biblical times, it happened since then, it’s happening now, and it will continue to happen until The Divine says enough’s enough.
Please don’t think that this is a problem only to the Christians. You can find them in any spiritual path. The trick is to know how to identify them for who they are. And then, of course, how to deal with them.
