How to Spot a Wolf

In Matt 7:15-20, Jesus gives us some guidelines on how to tell a wolf from a sheep. The analogy the Lord gives is an agricultural one. The Lord tells us to become professional fruit inspectors. You may not be able to look at a tree from a distance and tell right off what kind of tree it is, but upon closer examination of the fruit you can tell if it’s apple, citrus, pear or olive. Jesus gives us at least three criteria we can use to judge a counterfeit Christian.
