"The land is full of adulterers; . . . The prophets follow an evil course and use their power unjustly. Both prophet and priest are godless; . . . repulsive . . . they lead my people . . . astray . . . They commit adultery and live a lie. They strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns from his wickedness . . . ungodliness has spread throughout the land. This is what the Lord Almighty says: Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you . . . They speak visions from their own minds not from the mouth of the Lord. They keep saying to those who despise Me, ‘The Lord says: You will have peace!’ And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say, ‘No harm will come to you.’ But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear His Word? Who has listened and heard His Word?" Jeremiah 23:10-18

"Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator – who is for ever praised. Amen." Romans 1:22-25

"The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no-one who does good." Psalm 14:1

God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them." 2 Timothy 3:1-5

"When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practises divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God." Deuteronomy 18:9-13

"Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, the wrath of the LORD is upon you." 2 Chronicles 19:2

"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.
