“By their fruits ye shall know them.”

“Not by their profession, nor their sanctimoniousness, nor their zeal, but their “fruits” we understand; third, the converts they make. Like produces like. The parent is more or less reproduced in his children. In Jeremiah 23:16, it is said of those who give ear to the false prophets, “they make you vain.” Egotistical themselves, their disciples are also conceited: proud of their letterknowledge of the Scriptures, boastful of their orthodoxy, claiming to have light which those in the “man-made systems” are without. But their walk betrays them: no traces of humility, no mourning over sin, no experimental acquaintance with the plague of their hearts. They loudly boast of their assurance, but produce not the evidences on which scriptural assurance is based. They prate about eternal security but refuse to examine their hearts and see whether they be in the faith. They have much to say about their peace and joy, but are strangers to the groanings of Romans 7. They boast that they are “not under the law” and give proof thereof in their characters and conduct.”  —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “The Sermon on the Mount” by A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
