is what you’re saying beneficial?

Jeremiah 23:32 says this:

Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” declares the Lord.  “They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies, yet I did not send or appoint them.  They do not benefit these people in the least.” (emphasis added)

God seems to be using Jeremiah to call out a ton of false teachers and prophets.  They’re all over the place, pretending to be sent from God.  In verse 28 of the same chapter, God urges those have His word to speak it faithfully.

Notice, though, that in verse 32, God specifically calls out one of the weaknesses of the false prophets.  It doesn’t help anyone! God’s Word is always beneficial.

If we’re truly teaching God’s word.  It’s gonna help someone.  Is what you’re saying beneficial?
