I was reading John's blog on wolves and the church and I thought about it of all the work and thought he put into that blog. It was very indept!!! Let visit the bilble on the subject of wolves,
["... 27For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
31Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears..."]
Here is says that some wolves enter the church and then some come from with-in. I remember a blog by someone on the wheat and the tares and let's turn there in bible,
["... 24Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn..."]
Now the bible clearly says that some Christians are not, but only similitudes and clouds without rain. But we decided with God that he would separate the wheat from the tares when the time comes. God has not allowed to distinguish exactly who truly is tare and we just have to love everone the same to upkeep the Easter message. Since God's grace is not static but dinamic, God can choose to have mercy on any one at anytime and we hope we are there to bring those who err into the wheat club!!!
And everyone can remember when we acted as brute beasts with someone, like any ravenous viper or night wolf. And we can't loose the whole message and become like the Pharisee and the Publican,
["...4.Luke 18:10 (Whole Chapter)
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
5.Luke 18:11 (Whole Chapter)
The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
6.Luke 18:13 (Whole Chapter)
And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner..."]
I could of sworn the Publican telling God, "God, forgive me, I nothing but a brute beast!!!..."
