God knows very well the wounding and destruction by False Teachers to our daily active faith. He understands and grieves the detrimental effects upon his children.

"Their people, drained of power, are dismayed and put to shame...
 They are...like tender green shoots...scorched before it grows up"
Isaiah 37:26,27

God knows well the rebellious and deceitful "Christian Teachers/preachers" who prey upon vulnerable believers to follow idols made by sinful hands (Is. 30:16). He voices his thoughts about these False Prophets/Teachers, rebuking them for oppressing and controlling their followers with twisted and abusive ideas (supposedly from scripture) to keep themselves exulted rather than God.

Because you have ... relied on oppression and depended on deceit, this sin will become for you
    like a high wall, cracked & bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant.
 It will break in pieces like pottery ... "
Isaiah 30:12-14

God knows the harmful manner of the fool who pretends to be a shepherd, but is actually a wolf that teaches lies about His character and plans. God's words in Isaiah 32:5-7 describes this chief officer quite aptly:

No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel highly respected.
For the fool speaks folly, his mind is busy with evil.
He practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the LORD;
the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water.

The scoundrel's methods are wicked, he makes up evil schemes
to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just.

Be sure God knows the evil that False Teachers practice, and will bring them to account, and condemn their actions. He uses believers mature in faith & grace to recognize them and expose them.
