To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward. And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.
All teachers must be tested by the word of God. If their teaching does not agree with the Scriptures, there is no truth in them. All who are thus misguided will wander about, hard pressed and hungry, cursing their God and their king for their plight. They will look heavenward and earthward for relief, but will find nothing but darkness and gloom of anguish.
