Quote from: jazzypooh on February 03, 2009, 06:46:28 amHey San (((hugs))) first off, pastors will know that there is a difference between a SHEEP, a GOAT, and a WOLF. sheeps like to be taught and led by their shepherd. goats are the hard-headed ones. and wolves just have a totally different agenda. they are a breed of their own... there are lots of ways you can discern a wolf in sheeps clothing: 1. they like the high places. their desire and inward drive is to have a position of AUTHORITY in the Church. they love to lead but they themselves cannot be led by anyone. Jesus said the greatest among you shall be your SERVANT. wolves have no desire to serve, but love to be in the pulpit 2. they love flesh and blood (carnality and sin). they are carnal and therefore are easily drawn into strife and carnal things. they cause division, strife and schism in the Body of Christ 3. they come to defy ORDER in the Church. their main target is those that are in leadership, because their desire is to be in leadership. they will give them the hardest time because they will forever be trying to overthrow them and gain the position that they seek 4. they will not submit to their leader or anybody for that matter. they are full of rebellion 5. they don't want responsibility but will take all the authority and honor that you will give them 6. they are sly and sneaky just like their father. the false doctrines that they teach are often subtle. remember, a good heretic is one who knows how to combine SOME truths with deception. take the New Age movement for example 7. they only draw those that have 'itching ears'. only people with an itching ear can be allured by someone with a seducing spirit 8. they have an unteachable spirit because they already know everything 9. wolves identify themselves by their ATTITUDES, ACTIONS, and LIVING CONDITIONS 10. they oppose truth. they oppose the anointing. and they are skilled in operating in a counterfeit anointing Jesus encountered the wolf spirit in John 6:60-71 i could go on and on and on, but all you have to do is stay in the Word of God and continue to feed your spirit TRUTH, and you will be able to discern this spirit. the most important thing to know is God will give you discernment through His Word. He'll give you a heart of discernment to know when something is Him and when it is not Him Love, ~jazzy
Quote from: LittleRocketBoy on February 05, 2009, 10:49:48 pmMy understanding is that wolves in sheeps clothing are always unbelievers.They deny Christ and want you to deny Christ also.They are, after all, inwardly "wolves," not sheep.
Quote from: bill16652 on February 09, 2009, 10:04:24 amWhen they come at the sheep and wound and kill they are easy to identify and no they are not all unbelievers as they are easy to see, they are the so called christians that are better than everyone else, that forget we all sin daily, that nwill bring up your past even if it says that Gopd has forgotten it, the ones that hang on every word of your prayer to see if they can gain an advantage. Than k God a lot are not like this but many are.
Quote from: The Lord is my banner on February 09, 2009, 04:34:26 amBest thing to do is keep well away from anyone at all until you know them well. Umm...then how will we ever know anyone well enough to trust?
Quote from: Pete on February 09, 2009, 02:23:41 pmI think we have to get to the point where it no longer matters to us what people think or say about us. It is only in making ourselves vulnerable and opening up to other that we are able to truly help others.
Quote from: The Lord is my banner on February 09, 2009, 05:19:58 pmAnd in the process receive more hurt into ourselves. Sorry, I am, have been for some time, dwelling on the surface of online interaction, because I've repeatedly shown too much vulnerability and been hurt... again, and again, and again.If you've got to a place where that no longer hurts unbearably, that's good, but I don't know how to get there and maybe it's not possible. I feel my best defence now is to not let anyone see my pain. It doesn't do anybody any good at all, none. I'm not letting anyone in any more.
