Hocus Misfocus: How False Teachers Make Errors Appear Respectable, Safe, and True

Have you ever heard a false teacher talk about how some teachings or manifestations have abuses, extremes, or crazy aspects? After telling you that said teaching or manifestation has abuses, extremes, and crazy aspects, they then pivot and attempt to tell you the correct way to teach or do said thing. If you’ve ever experienced this, you may be the victim of Hocus-Misfocus.

Hocus-Misfocus is when a false teacher tries to make an error look respectable, safe, and true. They do this by framing it as if it’s true, it’s just that some people have been abusive, extreme, or crazy with said teaching\manifestation.

They’re attempting to get you to let your guard down, by convincing you they’re not crazy, extreme, or false like all of the others.

In reality, they may actually be error\false\heretical just like the others.

You’ll hear people talk about abuses of the prosperity gospel. Here’s the thing, the entire prosperity gospel is false. There isn’t a safe, respectable, or true way to proclaim it. The entire thing is broken.

I could give other examples, but I think you get the point. Whenever you hear a teacher framing something as if it has abuses, extremes, or a crazy end, slow down and evaluate if the entire thing is true or false. Don’t become a victim of Hocus-Misfocus.
