Matthew 7:15-17 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit." (ESV) What are the fruits that Jesus is talking about here? Works or Words? I've always thought it was works (esp in the light of the verses that follows "...the will of My Father..."). But the pharisees were "good" people - they were considered the epitome of morality by the Jews of that time. And I was further influenced to conclude that it is words by this article that I have read.
