A Morning Cup of Tea: Beware of Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

Good morning! Today's scripture is Matthew 7: 15- 20. Jesus warns us of false prophets, or those who teach false doctrine.

15. Beware of false prophets, which come  to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves.
16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or or figs of thistles?
17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Jesus is pretty straight forward here. Watch out. There are people who want to mislead you. Study God's word on your own, don't just take anyone's word for it. Watch and pray , and know what the Bible says. There are trustworthy preachers and teachers out there. But you will learn there are some not so good.
