Wolves in Sheeps’ Clothing

In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells the disciples (and that includes me) to “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but underneath are ravenous wolves.”

Down through the ages there have been a lot of false prophets.  If that weren’t true then there wouldn’t be the thousands of different belief systems in the world today.  And, there are no shortage of them today!  In fact, I’d say we’re up to our necks in false prophets with new ones coming along almost every day.  Some of them may even claim to be members of the Church.  “Pro-choice Catholics” for example.

As Jesus says, “Beware!”  Do your homework.  Don’t let a charismatic speaker lead you astray with his eloquence and the enthusiasm of his followers.  You have all the information you need in the Bible and the teachings of the Church.

Beware!
