We here at DefCon (as well as our brothers and sisters at other sites, such as Ken Silva and Ingrid Schlueter) use the written Word of God as the rule and basis for everything we believe about God and how one is to worship Him. For that, we are constantly accused of being “Pharisees” by those who would lead the Body of Christ away from the clear teachings of Scripture, and into areas which are questionable (at best) and/or heretical (at worst).

Well, here’s my question–what exactly does it mean to be a “Pharisee”? Are we justly accused as Pharisees by the Seeker-Driven™/Purpose-Driven™, “Let’s all just get along in unity” church-goer who does not dare speak for fear that it may offend someone? Or is there a more accurate description of a Pharisee? Let us examine the issue.(source)

Sweet words coming from a false teacher.

Now see the work of the false prophet Kim Clement as he preaches at Family Christian Center

15 “Beware of the afalse prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are bravenous wolves.

16   “You will 1aknow them by their fruits. 2Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?

17   “So aevery good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.

18   “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.

19   “aEvery tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

20   “So then, you will 1know them aby their fruits.

21aNot everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

22   “aMany will say to Me on bthat day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many 1miracles?’

23  “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; adepart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’ [1]
