Yes, mistaken, if they're sincerly convinced. You can be sincere in your beliefs, and I commend that, but one can also be sincerely wrong
. But that's just my take. As for what God Himself feels about it, we'll have to see what is spoken at Judgment Day when the works of the believers are tested. Those of straw will be burned, those of gold will remain, yadda yadda.
Of course, it remains to be seen if he's sincere, or just trolling. Bible talks about false teachers in the last days, but the Church has had a history of false teachers pretty much since its foundation, so nothing new here.
I do feel bad for believers who get duped by this sort of thing, though. (and, I'm now wondering what bits of false doctrine I've accepted. Since no Church has 100-percent perfect dictrine, I'm sure there's something....)
^ I'd add a bit about false prophets. There's clear scripture about that sort of thing. He's been wrong before - wether that was a prophesy or a mere prediction, though, is up for discussion. Which is it this time?
