Matthew 7:15-23: False Disciples

What are the marks that distinguish a true Christian and a false Christian? How can a person know if another’s claim to be a Christian is genuine? Jesus speaks to these issues and warns his followers that they should expect both false teachers and false disciples. If Jesus made such a point to make his disciples aware of this issue, surely anyone who claims to follow Jesus must take care to fully understand what Jesus says in such a confronting passage.
