Discern False Fruit With This Matthew 7 Key

The Bible is very clear that in the last days, false prophets and others who are bearing bad fruit will increase, and that we would know these kinds of people by their fruit (Matt 7:15-20). Fruit in a person’s life can be defined as the product of a person. It can come out through emotions, things they are doing or the results in their lives. Galatians 5:22-23 defines the spiritual fruit in someone’s lives as love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control. As believers in Christ we are to be in the vine of Christ Jesus and, as we do so, bear good fruit (John 15). But sometimes it can be a challenge when you first see the fruit in someone’s life, or your own, to determine if it’s good or not. I realize that some people will want to argue that determining whether a person’s fruit is good or bad is akin to judging them, but the Bible offers a different perspective.
