Bible Verse:
"Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:20) King James Version
This expression came to mean someone’s ill intention is easily recognizable from his or her deeds.
Origin and Application:
In his famous sermon on Mount Beatitudes, Jesus cautioned the crowds to beware of false prophets. A true prophet is one who preaches truth according to the Bible and faithful to Jesus’s teachings. A false prophet may come under the guise of a godly man whose sayings may sway from Christian doctrine. Their fruits, or deeds, are recognizable and should be “cast into the fire”.
Keywords :
fruits   know   intention   deeds
