Some spiritual leaders may appear to be so holy and blessed that they are walking right next to angels…but in reality, they are being held down and consumed by their own pride. Their arrogant egos can lead you in the wrong direction while totally ignoring the true guidance of the Holy Spirit. Be careful of those in which you may become impressed with.
The author of the letter to the Colossians warns us to avoid people like this. Do not let anyone wrongly influence you and cause you to stumble in your walk with Jesus. We are also instructed to not to let our own pride cause others to waver. We are called to worship God, not people. Great and trustworthy teachers do exist but model yourself after Jesus Christ and no one else. The Lord is your true Spiritual Leader.
Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. – Colossians 2:18
