If this is Jesus’ church and we want to build His kingdom, then we need to stop having “itching ears”. To do that however requires adopting Jesus (and Paul’s) speech in relation to the wicked – most specifically, the false preachers and fake Christians of our day.

1. Jesus’ speech toward false preachers and fake Christians was constantly derogatory1, offensive and polarizing.

2. The apostle Paul’s speech toward false preachers and fake Christians was equally derogatory, offensive and polarizing.

3. Jesus and Paul were following the examples of God’s OT prophets.

4. NT pastors are divinely charged with the same mission (or speech) as the effective means to protecting the church from fake Christians, and attracting those truly welcome to God.
