Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing–A Must-Listen-to Sermon

wolf-in-sheeps-clothingDr. Kevin Lewis–a professor of theology and law at Biola University in Southern California–gave a theologically deep, hard-hitting message last Sunday at Bethel Church in Fairbanks, Alaska. His sermon is entitled “Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing” and is based on Matthew 7:15-23–a passage where Jesus warns his followers to watch out for false prophets in the church. Dr. Lewis told his listeners, “Our worst enemies of the faith are not outside. Our worst enemies of the faith are in the church. It’s the people pretending to be followers of the true and the living God who now sound a different trumpet.”

If more messages like this one were delivered in pulpits, Christians would have greater discernment and would not fall victim to false teachings. Here’s a link to the audio recording.

    Listening to it now Holly, thank you!

    Holly, thank you for all you do to expose error in the church.

    God made mention of both intentional and unintentional sin in the OT and I’ve always wondered whether the wolves who invade the sheep-fold are deceiving them intentionally or unintentionally (being deceived themselves.) 

    If I remember correctly, 1 Kings 13 mentions a prophet of God who was deceived by another prophet and suffered the consequences of believing him.  Would anyone intentionally want to be deceived?

    Hope that made sense….:)

  3. Holly Says:

    Great question, Mary Ann. The Bible does seem to teach that people can allow themselves to be deceived and that they have culpability for being deceived. Consider Romans 1:18-32, where the Apostle Paul describes people who suppress the truth by their wickedness and their thinking becomes foolish and God gives them over to a “depraved mind.” It sounds like a willful suppression of truth that results in deception. Other passages of Scripture come to mind like 2 Timothy 4:3-4, where Paul says a time will come when people will not endure sound doctrine, but instead will surround themselves with teachers who will say only what they want to hear. These people will turn their ears away from truth and listen to myths.

    Hi Holly

    Can you recommend any genuinely biblical institutions that offer training in five fold ministry – Pentecostal based, or spirit filled evangelical if there is such a thing, please. I have been aware of the charlatans and false apostolic movements since God revealed it directly to me in the late 1990′s, but yearn for a ministry connection as so few fellowships appear to be hungering for truth and righteousness.
