September 16

As Christians, we need to be careful whom we condemn; especially when it's those who are spreading the gospel message and teachers of the Word. When we label others as heretics and false prophets who are working diligently for the kingdom and who are bringing a solid, Bible based message, we are the ones who look bad. I attended a conference where the women who spoke has been labeled just that. I listened with skepticism and like a Berean, I checked on her every word. I found that this woman is real! She loves Jesus with all her heart! You just can't fake that! We need to stop tearing one another apart! A real heretic or false witness will be found out, look at the sons of Sceva! They evoked the name of Jesus when they had no relationship with Him and the demon possessed man tore them apart! Take notice: it was a demon who tore them apart, not another Christian! Stay diligent in your studies so you know the difference. Be more of a fruit inspector and examine their fruit!

But the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?" And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Acts 19:15-16
