I. CLOSING STATEMENT OF JUDGMENT.
A. Seeming contradiction here.

C. While Lord tells us we should never be hypercritical, we should always be discriminating.
1. How are we to judge and "prove the spirits."
II. THIS VERSE INSTRUCTS US IN DEALING WITH PEOPLE, DISCRIMINATING BETWEEN PERSON AND PERSON. "GIVE NOT THAT WHICH IS HOLY."
A. What does he mean by this?
1. Dog not a domestic pet, but scavenger, fierce, half wild beast.
2. Swine that which is unclean.
3. That which is holy, pearls, message of kingdom, His Word.
4. He does not mean that this is our attitude to unbelievers.
a. How could we convert the unconverted?
b. He went on preaching to sinners.
5. We must study practice of Christ.

1. People who had heard the truth but like dogs and swine rejected it, trampled it.

1. We must recognize different types in people and discriminate, there is no mechanical way of testifying.
a. Some who witness this way, not only unscriptural but leads to great feeling of self-righteousness.
b. Witnessing - highest privilege.
1. Sales psychology.
2. Jesus advocated necessity for preparation, must know New Testament.
