The Bible warns us to “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matt. 7:15). Yet it also tells us

that false prophets will increase in the last days (see Matt 24:11). This tells me that we must learn to identify a wolf in sheep clothing or a false prophet. It’s not so that we can become judgmental or jaded, but it’s so we can protect ourselves and other sheep around us. We must guard the sheep in our churches. We must protect the young believers. We must do what God commands us in Matthew 10:16: “Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” Many believers fall into the trap of being mauled by wolves because they want to believe the best in people.
