But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.Matthew 15:13-14
It is very helpful to study the parable of the sower in order to understand that there are true and false converts sitting together in the Body of Christ. The Bible calls them tares among the wheat, foolish virgins among the wise, bad fish among the good, and goats among the sheep.
The true converts are those that have been born of God.
They are the planting of the Lord, and those not planted by the Lord will be uprooted. This is why contemporary evangelism that *manipulates and plays on human **emotions is so dangerous (*manipulation is witchcraft so if you are involved in manipulating anyone – REPENT and STOP! **emotions are of the flesh and we do not sow to the flesh -Galatians 6:7-9)
Many of todays professed converts are born of the will of man rather than by the Will of God, evidenced by the fact that up to 90% of present day converts fall away from the Faith.Jesus warned that there would be many on Judgment Day saying to Him “Lord, Lord” and yet will be cast into hell. Matthew 7:21-24
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 2 Corinthians 13:5
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 2:12-13
