Luke 6:43 ” No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.”

To just look at a tree in the orchard, the untrained eye may see nothing wrong….but come harvest-time, anyone will be able to see the empty branches and barrenness. Jesus spoke of this in Matthew 7:15-16 when He warned, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” Outwardly, a person may seem honorable, and with good character…their message may be attractive and on face value ring true. But with time, the words they speak will reveal the true condition of their heart…whether good and healthy, or bad and diseased. For just as a blind guide can only lead others astray, a false teacher can only produce false disciples.
