“5 Stars: BEST Book on this Topic! This is a must-read! This book is engaging from the first page to the last! Full of Scripture. Thanks.” SK
“I’ve got this book! Excellent!” Jason Darr
“5 Stars: By far the best book on this topic yet. I’ve read dozens on this important end days subject. The author brings you on a tour through Scripture such as I have never seen. My understanding was greatly increased by the revelation of the Word of God in this volume. The author is clearly one of if not the most informed and qualified person to speak on this topic. His knowledge and understanding of God’s Word on this topic is profound to put it lightly. Get this book. It’s the book wolves do not want you to find out about! Any detractor identifies himself as such a wolf!” MP
“Saints, I cannot stress enough the importance of this book for the believer who seeks truth and clarity regarding the destructive forces that are at work among the body of Christ today. For approximately ten years I have been researching the disturbing and ungodly trends that have infiltrated the Church, so I naturally gravitated to the title of this book. I would like to state that Todd Tomasella is an excellent writer who delivers his message of warning and hope in a way that the reader feels he is speaking face-to-face with him, as if in an intimate Bible study. Quite a gift in writing skills! His message is written clearly and effectively by supporting what he shares with the reader with bolded Scripture verses throughout the book. I appreciated that immensely. My wife and I read Deceivers & False Prophets Among Us together, and incorporated it into our daily devotions. Please note, we could have plowed through this book if we had chosen to do so. However, we purposely paced ourselves so that we would glean from, and effectively and prayerfully digest each chapter for maximum understanding. “I shall go back to this book again and again, not only for my own benefit, but for sharing with others—especially those who are ensnared in the falsities that seem to have gripped the modern-day Church. Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us has become, for me, a reference manual of sorts. I carry my Bible wherever I go, and this book shall be kept in my book bag along with my Bible, at the ready, for those times when I am sharing about the darkness that has infiltrated the Church. It is clear through the writing of this book that Todd is passionate about the purity and truth of God’s Holy Word and our understanding of it. It is equally apparent that he desires to see those ensnared by false doctrines, false prophets and the like, freed from the chains of demonic slavery. If you are at all interested or disturbed by ungodly events occurring within the Church today, this book will satisfy your thirst in your quest for truth. If you know someone who is blindly ensnared by the false prophetic movement, or false teachings that do not line up with the Word of God, this book is for them. In this book, Todd quotes from 2 Peter 2:1-3: ‘…false prophets…false teachers…And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. The author writes, ‘Here the LORD promises us that ‘judgment’ and ‘damnation’ await all unrepentant thieves, namely those who operate in the ministry.’ There are thieves within the body of Christ (but certainly not OF the body of Christ), who not only vie for your hard-earned money, but worse—for your very soul. Todd unveils these trappings, and clearly, through the use of the Holy Scriptures, points the reader in the right direction so we may not be deceived by seducing spirits. Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us is a breathtakingly eye-opening read about the warnings of seducing spirits predicted in God’s Word, which are manifesting in the world we live in right now.” Jesse DeGrazio
“I do not publish this book (JamesRussellPublishing.com). I have been doing intense research for a many years on the modern apostate church system and it was a welcome relief to find this book, “Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us” to be so accurate and well presented so every Christian could easily understand the serious apostasy taking place inside the churches today. Christians by the millions are being fooled and tricked by the modern apostate church system and it is books like this one that truly need to be read by churchgoing Christians of all denominations to understand the “great falling away” taking place today as the Bible so predicted will happen in the last days. Jesus Christ of Nazareth promised that if you seek, you will find the truth, and the truth will set you free. Consider this book one more in the library of your search for the truth. And if you think you are not in an apostate church? You really need to read this book because you may be in for a rude awakening! To the author I say, “Thank you for writing this book. It will help many to escape who are trapped in the apostate churches.” – James Russell
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DECEIVERS AND FALSE PROPHETS AMONG US:
“I am simply astonished at this book.” Pastor Dave, AZ
“This book is an AWESOME write! This author brings biblical, divine clarity to many false teachings, and it all makes really good sense to the reader as the Word is laid out. I guess that’s because it’s based on our only TRUTH — God’s Word. It’s time for God’s Church to wake up (me included).” Debbie Lord
“This book is knock-your-socks-off good! This book has blessed me in countless ways! This author writes with conviction and takes no prisoners. Well written and to the point!” Jesse DeGrazio
“I want to commend you on your stand to exposes the dangers of today and the future in light of the truth. We need more folk to be bold enough to battle in the arena of truth and error. I am writing this E-mail because I came a crossed your website and was impressed by the information presented here. I have been fighting the good fight for a while and I have meet many that do not hold to or believe in the stance which you teach. I in love share what I can. I am e-mailing you because I noticed listed on your site the works entitled Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us. A brief browse of this work was enough to convince me that this is indispensable information. So, I was wondering if you could possibly send me a couple copies (2 or whatever you can send) of it. I would like to do some study in this area and I need some good material on the issue. Unfortunately, money is tight. So, whatever you can do and what ever literature you can send will be most helpful and grateful. If you can send nothing, then at least send me your prayers. God Bless you all! Thanks.” Pastor David P. Schneider
“Todd, it is amazing to me that the words of God found in Galatians 5:19-21, which concern that which prevents us from inheriting the kingdom of God, are as hard to find coming out of a pulpit on Sunday morning as it was for me to find an unvarnished and well written book on deception in a book store. Had the lady at Christ for the Nations bookstore not taken the time to search the internet for me to find your book “Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us,” I wouldn’t know near what I know today about deceivers in the pulpit. With approx. 7,000,000,000 people left on planet earth and the day far spent, it is scary to think what the condition of the saints will be at the Lord’s return, which is imminent. Woe unto those who shut up the kingdom of heaven against men:
“But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows houses, and for a pretense make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” – (Matthew 23:13-15 KJV)
Thankfully, your ministry reaches around the world through means of an electronic pulpit on the internet. Those who won’t receive God’s unvarnished Word through the local pulpits in America and around the world, can still be reached.” Paul Roberts
“Dear brother Todd. My name is Joe Sanchez from N.Y.C. I recently read your book on false prophets (Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us). I have been tremendously enlightened and blessed. This subject has been very sensitive to my heart. I’m in the process of purchasing your other book Predators in Our Pulpits. I recently read Christianity in Crisis by Hank Hannegraff. Your book took me to another level. I have been a close researcher on all the different movements that have invaded our church: Emergent church, seeker-friendly, purpose driven, new apostolic reformation, signs and wonders movement, etc . Your material is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I praise God for men like you. I will continue to pray for you. Would like to know your opinion on Jimmy Swaggart’s ministry, the message of the cross? Will you be coming to NYC anytime in the future? I would really like to break bread with you. Or will you speak at any church in the future? Keep up the great work. In Christ.” Joe Sanchez
“I cannot emphasize enough how important this book is today, right now. Whether you realize it or not, we in the Christian church world are caught up right in the middle of the “great falling away” and the “apostate church.” I have spent years studying false teachers, false prophets, false everything within the church. This book puts it all together in one place and it is 100% Scripture based. You NEED to learn what is really going on within today’s churches from the perspective of the LORD who addresses each and everything we see today in His Word! There is so much deception, so many lies, so many false teachings, false doctrine, false prophets, etc. I really commend the author for writing a book like this that is totally Word based. It is not HIS opinion; it is what God Himself has to say about it. If you believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God (which it is of course), then you cannot argue with this book. It is ALL Scripture. Do yourself a huge favor and buy, read, and study this book. It is a great “primer” for someone who is just beginning to delve into this topic and it is also a great book for someone who has been studying these things for years. […] Don’t hesitate to purchase this book. I am going to recommend it to everyone I know.” Darlene T.
“I am giving the Deceivers and False Prophets book to a sister in Christ who came up to me yesterday at work with a question her son had about the “Covering” doctrine! (which is one of many things addressed in this book) Our God is SO GOOD and His Holy Spirit is working through MANY hearts, brother! I give away these things with prayers that eyes and ears may be opened, and hearts softened. The harvest is truly ripe my friend!” Stephen Michels
“Wonderful! Fabulous devotional…Out of the two books I got, I’m doing the smaller one first (Deceivers & False Prophets Among Us). I was so impressed that the author said to have my bible out to use as a reference for back up and not just to take his word for it! -Because isn’t that the very thing that the people in these false movements are doing?…Tell the author I am truly enjoying that book and am not rushing through it at all. I really want what I’m reading to really soak in.” Sally Matthews
“Great work. Very convicting.” Katherine C.
“Hi. So far I’m 1/2 way through ‘Deceivers and False Prophets.’ You have a direct and witty writing style- I like it!” Lisa K.
“Todd, wanted to write and thank you for writing this book. It has been helpful on all levels regarding awareness. It even bolstered me … Thanks to the discernment I received from your book in pointing out what the Scripture said will take place at the end of the Age I wasn’t taken in by this minister’s words concerning revival.” Paul
“Wonderful! Fabulous devotional…Out of the two books I got, I’m doing the smaller one first (Deceivers & False Prophets Among Us). I was so impressed that Todd said to have my bible out to use as a reference for back up and not just to take his word for it! -Because isn’t that the very thing that the people in these false movements are doing? … Tell Todd I am truly enjoying that book and am not rushing through it at all. I really want what I’m reading to really soak in.” Sally M.
“Delusions, Hypocrisy, & Falling Away in the Church: This book addresses the hindrances experienced by non-believers who encounter blatant error that we so readily accept in the church today. I have not had the blessing to read such a timely scriptural confrontation of what we as a church are accepting as true and yet does not line up with the truth of God’s Holy Word. A real eye opener! Kills sacred cows that have long needed to be removed from today’s church world. Todd Tomasella hit a home run — the people who need this just might not buy it – so buy one and give it to them!” P.J., TX
— “Every Christian should read this book (DFPS) ! It is a truly refreshing glimpse into a dark world of deception like none I have read. Anyone who seeks Truth will be blessed by the honest candor with which this author confronts the epidemic of heresies running rampant in pulpits all across America. This book is a clarion call to all who wish to honor their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The call is this: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) This author is quick to point out that any other mindset leads us toward a path of deception and destruction. Seeking our Lord and living a life of righteousness should be our all-consuming passion, and this author gets it! I praise God for this work of admonishment to the throngs of ravenous wolves and their prey. I pray this work guides a multitude away from the fad publications polluting their minds, and back to the only Book that offers living hope, the living Word of God, so they may be overcomers in these last days. (Matthew 24:13)” Pastor Dave Gaffney, AZ
“I have been reading your book (Deceivers and False Prophets). It’s very good, and makes you think about where to go to church these days. Another hurricane, more earthquakes, and no one can see the real reason for all of these things happening.” Mike C., TX
“This author has addressed the number one issue of today’s Christian culture. A subtle enemy has been invading our Christian churches and lulling Christians to sleep. This book is a dynamic tool for the discerning Christian who wants to be an effective servant of the LORD.” Dan White
“Safeguard your soul today by agreeing to defeat Satan at his own game by relying on the power of Jesus…If you don’t fully understand Satan’s games, buy this book that outlines Satan’s traps. It’s a must read to gain the understanding of the battle we are in.” Ray M., TX
“I ordered the books, ‘Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us’ and ‘Lie of the Ages’, by Todd Tomasella. I have read the first book but am just getting started on the second. I find them very compelling, truthful and filled with biblical truth. I think the reason I was so drawn to Todd’s writings was the fact that he supports everything with Scripture. He does not speak his own ideas or the traditions of man…I applaud Todd wholeheartedly for his truthful and biblically-based writings. May the Lord’s blessings be rich in his life as he stands against deception. Keep on writing those wonderful books because deception is all around us and many are blinded by the god of this world.” Marlin Y.
