Didache 11:1
Whosoever therefore shall come and teach you all these things that have been said before, receive him;

Didache 11:2
but if the teacher himself be perverted and teach a different doctrine to the destruction thereof, hear him not; but if to the increase of righteousness and the knowledge of the Lord, receive him as the Lord.

Didache 11:3
But concerning the apostles and prophets, so do ye according to the ordinance of the Gospel.

Didache 11:4
Let every apostle, when he cometh to you, be received as the Lord;

Didache 11:5
but he shall not abide more than a single day, or if there be need, a second likewise; but if he abide three days, he is a false prophet.

Didache 11:6
And when he departeth let the apostle receive nothing save bread, until he findeth shelter; but if he ask money, he is a false prophet.

Didache 11:7
And any prophet speaking in the Spirit ye shall not try neither discern; for every sin shall be forgiven, but this sin shall not be forgiven.

Didache 11:8
Yet not every one that speaketh in the Spirit is a prophet, but only if he have the ways of the Lord. From his ways therefore the false prophet and the prophet shall be recognized.

Didache 11:9
And no prophet when he ordereth a table in the Spirit shall eat of it; otherwise he is a false prophet.

Didache 11:10
And every prophet teaching the truth, if he doeth not what he teacheth, is a false prophet.

Didache 11:11
And every prophet approved and found true, if he doeth ought as an outward mystery typical of the Church, and yet teacheth you not to do all that he himself doeth, shall not be judged before you; he hath his judgment in the presence of God; for in like manner also did the prophets of old time.

Didache 11:12
And whosoever shall say in the Spirit, Give me silver or anything else, ye shall not listen to him; but if he tell you to give on behalf of others that are in want, let no man judge him.
