Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. -Matthew 7:15
Hiking in the mountains of Utah, Coty Creighton spotted a goat that didn't look like the rest of the herd. A closer look revealed that the unusual animal was actually a man dressed as a goat. When authorities contacted the man, he described his costume as a painter's suit covered in fleece, and he said he was testing his disguise for a hunting trip.
The hunter's deception reminds me of Jesus' words: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves" (Matt. 7:15). False teachers do not bear the fruit of God's Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23). Rather, they "walk according to the flesh . . . and despise authority" (2 Peter 2:10). They are bold, egotistical, and given to greed (vv.10,14). Ruled by their own desires, they exploit people by using "deceptive words" (v.3). The Bible says these wayward spiritual leaders are headed for destruction and will take many unsuspecting and undiscerning people with them (vv.1-2).
Jesus, the Good Shepherd, rather than pursuing personal gain, laid down His life for His sheep. God does not want anyone to be misled by false teaching. He wants us to be aware of those who deceive, and follow Him instead-the true Shepherd of our souls.
At the name of Jesus Every knee shall bow, Every tongue confess Him, King of glory now.
