False Teachers by Shai Linne NEW SONG + Lyrics - Fal$e Teacher$



Bellow are the lyrics I transcribed: (Some parts I wasn't able to understand so if you can help me out with this just leave a comment bellow! Thanks)

One two one two, Yoh!
Special dedication to my brothers and sisters on the great continent of Africa
To Saints in Malawi, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe.
Don't be deceived by what America is sending y'all man, yeh?

Let me begin, while there is still ink left in my pen,
I am set to contend for Truth you can bet will offend,
Deception within the church man, who's letting them in?
We talked about this years ago, let's address it again. (Yeh)
And I ain't really trying to start beef, but some who claim to be part of his sheep got some sharp teeth.(they're wolves)
You cast at me when you criticize them when you criticize them, but Jesus told us: Matthew 7:16, we can recognize them!
And God forbid that for the love of some fans, I keep quiet and watch them die with their blood on my hands!
(so...)There's nothing left for me to do except to speak to you in the spirit of Jude 3 and 2 Peter 2
And I know that some would label me a Pharisee, because today the only heresy is saying that there's heresy:
"How dare they be specific and drop some clarity on the popularity of the gospel of Prosperity"
Turn off TBN that channel is overrated. The Pastor's speak bogus statements, financially motivated. It's kind of like a pyramid scheme. Visualize Heretics christianizing the American dream.
It's foul and deceitful, they're lying to people, teaching that camels squeeze through the eye of a needle!
Ungodly and wicked, ask yourself how can they not be convicted treating Jesus like a lottery ticket.
And you're thinking they're not the dangerous type because some of their statements are right,
That only proves that Satan comes as an angel of light!
This teaching can't be believed without a cost, the lie is you can achieve a crown without a cross
And I hear it all the time when they speak on the block
Even unbelievers are shocked how they're fleecing the flock
It should be obvious then, yet I'll explain why it's in, peep the Bible it's in 1 Timothy 6:9-10
It talks about how the desire for riches has left many souls on fire and stitches mired in ditches
Tell me, who would teach you to pursue as a goal the very thing that the Bible said will ruin your soul! (eh?)
Yet they're encouraging the love of money,
to make it worse, they've exported this garbage into other countries!
My heart breaks even now as I am rhyming. Do you wanna know what all false teachers have in common?(what?)
It's called self(ism) the fastest growing religion; they just dress it up and call it "Christian".
Don't be deceived by this funny biz, if you come to Jesus for money, then he's not your God, money is!
Jesus is not a means to an end, the Gospel is He came to redeem us from sin, and that is the message forever I yell!
If you're living your best life now you're heading for hell!

(Talk to them)
Joel Osteen - false teacher!
(Let them know)
Creflo Dollar is a false teacher!
(Who else? Who else?)
Benny Hinn is a false teacher!
I know they're popular but don't let them deceive ya!
(Talk to them)

(Tell the Truth)

(Let them know)
Paula White is a false teacher!
Use your discernment, let the Bible lead ya!
(Keep going)
Fred Price is a false teacher!
(Tell the Truth)
Kenneth Copland is a false teacher!
(Who else? Who else?)

I know they're popular but don't let them deceive ya!
(Talk to them)
Eddie Long is a false teacher!
(Let them know)

(Who else? Who else?)
Paul Crouch is a false teacher!
Use your discernment, let the Bible lead ya!

"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep." 2 Peter 2:1-3

we are elected to be holy

It is 11:01 AM late Tuesday morning here by Lake Michigan. It is a warm gray hazy morning. Maybe it will rain sometime today.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I got up drank a class of orange juice and ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I next messed with our main computer. I downloaded a video I made last night for my BookTube channel. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my diary I read William Perkins till my wife arrived home from work, which was around 7:30 AM.

I have spent the morning writing in my diary and reading 'The Works of William Perkins' Volume 4 'Exposition upon the Whole Epistle of Jude'.

Last night I made a video for BookTube and read late into the night 'The Luminaries' a novel by Eleanor Catton.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I will spend the day reading my books and waiting for tomorrow to come.
