"By their fruit you shall know them"

Scot McKnight has had an ongoing series of posts on the Sermon on the Mount. The most recent one is called Follower or fraud and discusses how you will know a false prophet. We were just talking about that on Sunday. Miracles and things like that don't prove that someone is from God. The scripture is very clear that you will know them by their fruit. As Scot says, "It may take time; and we may find ourselves committed to them and listening to them and learning [from] them but, eventually so it seems, character will win out and we will see them for who they are by the way they behave."
