Did you know that Satan would like nothing better then to plant an imposter in your midst to draw you away from the truth of God’s Word? It happened in ancient Israel when he filled their land with false prophets.
If your parents ever told you to “watch your mouth,” it might have sounded silly at the time but it was good advice. If they ever washed your mouth out with soap there was probably a good reason for it.
