    “You will know them by their fruits”
    (Matthew 7:16)


    Character of their teaching
    Conduct of their life
    Condition of their fruit

    Warning: “On Guard” or “Heretic Hunter”?

    Fruit must be examined 1) over time and 2) up-close

    Are you on guard?

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
