Beware! There are many people who do not want you to hear the lesson in today’s Gospel reading! It is one thing to be told to beware of false prophets, but it is another to be told how to tell who a false prophet might be!
And how do you know a false prophet when you see one? If you tell a tree by its fruits, then you tell a false prophet by what they produce. And what should a prophet produce who claims to speak for Christ?
