Discernment is based upon the exegesis of the Holy Scriptures of which the Holy Spirit will confirm and validate. The challenge is most attenders and followers of these contemporary false teachers, apostles, prophets, and bishops do not know how to apply hermeneutics in their study, interpretation and application of the Holy Scriptures. These men and women have not gone through the process of accredited theological education which brings accountability and assessment of a students philosophies and scholarship.
Instead these false teachers, create new reformations and movement outside and away from the CHURCH and ACADEMY, having a form of godliness, but denying the power and authority of God through the entire ecclesiastical elders of the Christian church.
There should never be great disagreement regarding what is sound scriptural doctrine and its interpretation and application for Christians in the church today. When there is a significant segment of ordained elders raise an alarm regarding the doctrine and/or application of scripture that is being taught and practiced then the considerations should be examined in light of the contemporary and historical view of the Christian church as to how she is to please Christ as His Body, which he is the head.
Because those who listen to false teachers do not or can not properly exegete the scriptural text because it is not the method that is being taught. One of the first rules is the context will define the interpretation within the context of historic scriptural culture. Rather, these false apostles, prophets and bishops eisegesis (read into with their presuppositions) the text to promote their ideas that will promote their agenda which creates various false doctrines and practices.
Healthy and Holy attributes of the local assemblies of congregations is not measured by the standards of success that the world views promote. The mission of the church has never changed from what Jesus Christ has commanded we his disciples in Matthew 28:18-20!
Jesus taught according to Matthew 6:19-24 to his disciples who later became apostles that you cannot be devoted to God and the acquisition of money. Because you will be devoted to one master which will demand more from you than the other.
So if you continue to read in context from verses 25 to 34 you will discover that God already knows what everyone needs and makes provision for all in his creation. Note verses 32 and 33 that contrasts the difference between unbelievers and believers in God.
