Look to Their Fruit

Read Deuteronomy 18:15-22 and Matthew 7:13-20

It be a challenge to discern between true and false teachers for two reasons: first, Satan is able to transform into an angel of light to deceive, and uses men in similar fashion to twist and pervert the truth of God's Word for their own selfish purposes. Second, our own heart can desire a teacher who tells us what we want to hear, which is not always in accordance to truth. The Lord Jesus commends us to "Look to their fruit" to discern false teachers.
