Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1
Caveat emptor is a Latin phrase that means "let the buyer beware." While literally the phrase referred to a buyer's diminished rights after the sale of property ("look before you buy"), it serves as a warning to all who are about to buy or believe anything.
