Hello everyone, welcome to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today we will know what the Bible says about people who are scammers, frauds, and misleading.
The Word of God warns us all the time to stay away from scammers, frauds, and misleading people lest we become like them. God does not like these people at all. He is not pleased with these people, but God is angry with them.
It is possible to become rich by scamming, Fraud, And Misleading someone in this world, but we must remember that God is taking note of all these things and God will reveal them at the right time (Luke 8:17). God’s word concerning them to be rich, and you are making yourselves fat like beasts to be sacrificed by living a comfortable life by scam, Fraud, And Misleading in this world (James 5:2-16).
The Word of God warns us not to be misled, and Luke 16:10 says to be faithful in the little things. And Jesus said in Mark 8:36 What do you gain if you conquer the world and lose your soul?
Example Fraud In The Bible
If we look at the way in the Bible Acts 5: 1-10 we will see that Ananias and his wife Sapphira were both scammed which resulted in their being sentenced to death.
