why the bible is harsh on false ministries 

A few reasons the Bible is so harsh on false prophets/false teachers/false apostles:
– Ministry is service, it’s very simple. Serve God. Serve people. It’s not for the prideful, it’s for the humble.

– The bible is written in black & white ink, it’s easy to read. Many people have given their lives to record scriptures for us. You can read scriptures out loud or find somebody who can. Therefore, if you make something up its totally all your fault. You didn’t have to.

– If you want inspiration from God, just pray. If you ask for a fish, He WON’T give you a serpent. Therefore if you minister something from a compromising or wicked spirit rather than the Holy Spirit it’s because you didn’t ask God and you didn’t pray about it.

– Therefore, if you choose to publicly teach something that’s off – you can expect public correction. Ministry is simple, but eternal souls lie in the balance. It should be super-easy to take correction and adjust yourself. You should embrace correction, actually – for the benefit of you and the people you serve.

– If you reject that correction, it proves not only that you have evil inside your heart, (because you took simple truth and twisted it into something false) but it also proves that you are prideful, hard-hearted and care more about yourself than others. The bible also explains that most times the motive of those that suppress the truth is the desire to keep money flowing at a certain rate. The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, especially in ministry.
This is why the bible is harsh on false ministries. Because any honest Christian that is free from the love of money can keep it simple, easily find the truth, easily spend time in prayer, and humbly minister the truth in the Holy Spirit. And you must be prepared to change if you hear or see correction, regardless of how it impacts your cash flow or organizational/ denominational affiliation. There is no excuse for anything less.

False doctrine says: “I make mistakes but I don’t have to repent or change because of grace!”

Truth says: “If I make public mistakes i repent publicly, walk in humility and get more grace to do Gods will from here on out.”
