“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.

Tools specific to Mat 7:16

You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit.

So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire.

But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.
