Ezekiel 13:1-16

"… Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Lord." (v. 8)

This is a convicting passage for those of us involved in ministry, especially those of us who teach and preach the Word of God. We need to be prayerfully prepared before we speak, making sure we're sharing the truth — and that it's the right truth for that moment. We need to choose our words carefully, making a clear distinction between God's Word and our own opinions.

But maybe that's just my opinion.

    Yes, but I think there is a difference between sincere Christians who desire to preach the truth (but may sometimes get it wrong), and religious leaders who manipulate the Word and claim personal revelation in order to deceive people to achieve their own personal goals. I haven’t read the context of this verse, but I’m guessing the Lord was referring to the latter group. Of course, we are responsible to make sure that we are preaching God’s Word and not our own opinions, as you said, but I don’t think God will turn against us if we make a mistake. And I don’t think you meant to imply that He will. I was just rambling.
