False prophet - playing God

The false prophet is that which presents itself as good, and assumes the role of God in guiding others. Underneath it’s facade, it despises individual freedom as an interference to its goals. It is the most dangerous form of evil because it appears good. Only spiritual sense perceives its wickedness.

The false prophet appears as a family member who dominates another family member because he loves them so much he does not want to see them making a mistake.

The false prophet is the influential church member who is determined to protect the church against the one who questions his God-given (?) authority.

The false prophet is the governor who is so certain that he knows what is best for the governed, that he proceeds to eliminate freedom of speech, freedom of choice, freedom of privacy, etc., all in the name of what is best for everyone.

The false prophet is an abomination because it defies divine Principle, and would, if it could, choke His expression.

"Like our nation, Christian Science has its Declaration of Independence. God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government,reason, and conscience. Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love."
"Man's rights are invaded when the divine order is interfered with, and the mental trespasser incurs the divine penalty due this crime.” (S&H)
