Jesus said ferocious wolves would come.

How do you plan to keep yourself, your family, your church, and your denomination safe?

What action might you have to take?

Before you repeat a mistaken understanding of “Do not judge” (Matthew 7:1), notice what follows in the same chapter:

Matt 7:15–20

15 Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

It’s going to happen. It is happening.

What would have to be true in order for you to take action? What line would have to be crossed?

If you don’t know, then you’re no shepherd. You’re wolf-bait.
