I Don’t Like Your Fruit

So then, you will know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:20 NASB). Many churches teach that you know each other by their fruits. They decide who is a believer by their fruits. But the whole passage is about false prophets (v15). We are not fruit inspectors. I remember when a time going into California and you had to pass through inspection stations where they checked for fruit. Salvation is by grace through faith. Not by fruit or any other works. Many churches will shun you if you don’t meet their fruit requirements. The best way to look at people is not by their fruit but by love. You may not like how the fruit looks, but it’s still good fruit. Fruit takes time to grow. Love nurtures growth.
