Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

2 Pet 2:1 “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.”

The real problem is not outside the church but inside. It’s pretty easy to spot false religions, but Peter sees that they shall be among you. Jesus also said that they would look like the real thing. So they don’t turn up wearing badges, labels, or funny clothing. They are wolves alright, but dressed in sheep’s clothing.

I once heard a story about how the students in zoology class decided to play a practical joke to trick their professor. What they did, was create a bug from the parts of several different bugs. They put it together in such a detailed and careful way, that it looked like an entirely genuine new type of bug. They then took it to the professor and said to him “we found this bug, but cannot identify it. Have you seen it before?” The professor looked at it very carefully for some time. Finally, he said to them that he had identified it. “I know what it is” he said. “It’s a humbug!”

Like this “humbug”, Christians need to be careful because the counterfeit is made up of parts that are true, but the sum of those parts is not. Part truth and part lie are hybrids that is detrimental to the health of the Church.
