“The fact is that such men are pseudo-emissaries: they tell lies about their work and masquerade as emissaries of the Messiah.”
2 Corinthians 11:13 CJB
What Paul is getting at here is that there are a lot of false teachers and preachers out there doing things for the money, fame and prestige! Realize, nothing has changed and we need to be on guard!
“There is nothing surprising in that, for the Adversary himself masquerades as an angel of light; so it’s no great thing if his workers masquerade as servants of righteousness. They will meet the end their deeds deserve.”
2 Corinthians 11:14-15 CJB
We don’t need to worry about the false teachers and preachers. Our LORD will deal with them and they will get what they deserve! We just need to focus on learning and hearing from the LORD so we can identify the false teachers!
“For the time is coming when people will not have patience for sound teaching, but will cater to their passions and gather around themselves teachers who say whatever their ears itch to hear.”
2 Timothy 4:3 CJB
Paul was warning people of these evil, self-centered people and the warning goes for us today, also!
Have a blessed day seeking the LORD!
