The Pied Piper of Hamelin (Germany) describes a magical piper (flute player), dressed in multicolored (“pied”) clothing. He was a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magical flute. As he played, rats by the thousands happily danced behind him as he led into the rushing river to drown. After the rats all died the Pied Piper returned for his extermination fee, but the citizens refused to pay. He retaliated by using his same magical flute power to lure their children as he had done the rats. The children also followed and happily danced to the tune of the flute and they were never seen again. (theportalist.com).

Beware: A Pied Piper is not what he seems to be, he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, who offers strong but delusive, enticing, alluring lies and promises. He makes irresponsible and irresistible promises; a charismatic charming person who attracts many followers.

Beware: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12). Well, it seems we now have modern day performing political Pied Pipers who are attracting many with their charming flutes. Their alluring, irresistible music is simply overpowering and overwhelming, leading many into the current and course of this world (Eph. 2:2).

Beware: Because thousands say it, that does not make it true. As Snoopy typed to Charlie Brown, “Has it ever occurred to you that you might be wrong?” Also, “Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.” Don’t listen to the faulty flute – Listen to the faithful truth. Truth always confirms truth. Truth is not truth because of age but accuracy. Truth is always clear, consistent, and concise. Truth has no defects, deformities, or deceptions. Truth is never retracted, corrected, or erased. Truth is immaculate and immeasurable. God’s truth is invincible, indestructible, immeasurable, immutable, informing, intriguing, ingenious, impartial, incredible, and infinite (Matt. 24:35). Not one single word from Jesus Christ was uncertain, unfit, unfair, untrue, or unwise. Every word is verified by His stainless and sinless life. God is the author, maintainer, originator, and overseer of His written Word, and God cannot lie (Titus 1:2). The Lord is TRUTH and TRUTH cannot lie (John 14:6). By Him all things exist and continually consist (Col. 1:17). One professor said, “There are no absolutes.” A student said, “Are you absolutely sure?” Scriptures are the only absolute, assurance, authority, authentic, and abiding Word of God (Acts 17:11). Beware of Pied Pipers.
