Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Wherever the demands of true discipleship are taught, there are false prophets who advocate the wide gate and easy way. False prophets are those who profess to be speaking for God but they come in sheep’s clothing, giving the appearance of true believers. But inwardly they are ravenous wolves, who prey on the immature, unstable, and gullible. Their lives and teachings betray them. The life and teaching of those who claim to speak for God should be tested by the Word of God.
