Hell's greatest enrichers!

(Brooks "Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices")

"…the prophets that make my people err..." Micah 3:5

Satan labours by false teachers, who are his emissaries
to deceive, delude, and forever undo the precious souls
of men! They seduce them, and carry them out of the
right way into by-paths and blind thickets of error and
where they are lost forever!

As strumpets paint their faces, and deck and perfume
their beds, the better to allure and deceive simple souls;
so false teachers will put a great deal of paint and garnish
upon their most dangerous principles and blasphemies, that
they may the better deceive and delude poor ignorant souls.
They know sugared-poison goes down sweetly. They wrap
up their pernicious, soul-killing pills in gold! “‘Peace, peace,’

when there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14

"Beware of false prophets, for they come to you in sheep's
but inwardly they are ravening wolves!" These
lick and suck the blood of souls! These kiss and kill! They
cry, 'Peace, peace!' until souls fall into everlasting flames!

False teachers handle holy things with wit and trifling, rather
than with fear and reverence. They are soul-murderers! They
are like evil surgeons, who skin over the wound
but never
heal it. False teachers are hell's greatest enrichers! Such
smooth teachers are sweet soul-poisoners! This age is full of
such teachers
such monsters!

They eye your goods more than your good; and mind
more the serving of themselves
than the saving of your
souls. So they may have your substance
they care not
though Satan has your souls! That they may the better
pick your purse
they will hold forth such principles as
are very indulgent to the flesh.

These are Satan's great benefactors, and such as divine
justice will hang up in hell as the greatest malefactors!
