Are you trying to convince me, or yourself? Again, no grace. Just vitriol. By their fruits you shall know them.The "bad fruit" of Mt 7:16-18 is with respect to the "false prophets" of Mt 7:15. The bad fruit coming from the Gentile church, such as the Roman church, would be with respect to the Roman Catholic priest pedophiles still working around children in the church, or the Inquisitions done by the church, or the Protestants burning the Catholics in Cromwell's war, and the Protestant Catholic wars in Britain and in Europe, or the recent religious war in Ireland. This is the horse you have tied your cart to. Your false prophet Paul tells a good story, but what are the fruits of that story. (Matthew 7:13-14)
Matthew 7:15-17 15“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.
