Even if it is not with the majority! Even if it is not politically correct! A wolf in sheeps clothing will show up from no where sometimes, they will get very involved in different areas doing favors for people right and left. Their intentions are to look for opportunities to be a predator on the unknowing. They portray themselves as a Christian wearing the Christian tshirts, big cross necklaces. Their life outside may look perfect and altogether, while the truth is it is really just a front to cover up the lies they want hidden. They do not truly know the bible nor do they quote the bible.
Yet they spew what a Christian they are from their mouth to other people and blast Facebook with quotes from the bible about how to live for Jesus! I know because I invited a man and his wife to the church me and my husband attend….. The man turned out to be a sexual predator after the married women of our church! His whole life he portrayed to the church was a lie and he was asked to leave our church. The sad thing is, The man and his second wife used to visit my parents long ago when I was 9. Then he mysteriously disappeared….. That is true, but but men should counsel men and women counsel women.
The man was always trying to get me alone to talk and help him with his problems! He turned out to be a predator and is officially gone and asked not to return. Our Pastor is our watchman praise God!!!!! Beware of the signs!
This man was given a second chance and had been a predator all his life, not willing to change! God help him to wake up! Men should counsel men and women should counsel women. I agree with this but in some cases a man is the counselor, such as in the case of our Biblical Counseling ministry at Selah Mountain Ministries. My husband is the counselor and I run the office.
We have a camera that I monitor outside of his office. The camera shows what is going on inside of the office and I can see but do not hear the conversation. We have had absolutely not objections to this practice. Thanks for sharing here. A wolf is driven by its appetites. A Shepherd with a trained sheep dog can spot , smell and defeat a wolf. Sheep dogs are raised as puppies with sheep , trained by the Shepherd with voice and hand signals. Sheep dogs keep order for the flock. Wolves and dogs same family. I wish to know whether is this Biblical, my church as not a registered one and still ask us to pay tithes and offering.
My Senior Pastor always said she can hear God speaks to her and she was also a prophet. I need to know whether am I dealing with a wolf in sheep skin. I have concerns about this pastor forcing you to pay even a tithe of food cooked. Our pastor always told me, that i must plant for the church he always told me that every time we meet is that right?? That is a bit strange to have your pastor as you or anyone person in your church to plant a church. I have not heard that.
I would ask him why church leadership is not there to help you do this? Have they trained you or given you help to do that? If not, that is a new one to me and not normal. When I read this Trump immediately came to mind for me. We must be wise in who we choose as president and my gut and soul just tells me this verse says it all for me. I appreciate your post and enjoy reading them and reminding us what the Bible tells us about so many things that certainly applies so much about what is going on today.
Well I really enjoyed the article, but some of the comments, not so much. You could never vote for Trump? Do you prefer Clinton? She believes in the murder of unborn babies, the Word of God describes that as an abomination, the worst kind of sin. She is also a compulsive and habitual liar. Verse 13 tells the duration of these gifts, if one of them has expired then they have ALL expired. When you, as a Pastor post such things and then use Jude v. I love going to church with my husband to worship God. Several others are aware of his behavior. My husband and I have agreed to stay arm in arm and together at church.
I am sorry for this ordeal. This man is a wolf. I would speak with the pastor about this man. I would go to the pastor with your husband present or at least call him.
Perhaps the pastor has heard complaints about this man before and what he is doing is totally inappropriate. You and your husband may be the first to expose this man and have him dealt with. God may be using you to help keep His church without spot or blemish, as the church is called to be holy as God is holy.
I am glad I stumbled onto this page. I got a little too close in sharing spiritual thoughts with a man at my church. He is warm, kind and gentle. Now I realize he has been grooming me all along for a physical affair. He said everything a woman likes to hear, including warm hugs witnessed by my husband. My husband said he could see it coming. He never said anything because of his own pride but now he wishes he would have.
I am embarrassed and have asked God for forgiveness. My husband forgave me for getting too emotionally connected with another man and told me I need to set better boundaries with men. He said a physical affair would have been much harder for him to get over. I purchased a bible study on boundaries. Thank you for sharing your experience Nina.
Wolves among the Sheep
Nina, Thank you for being so transparent. I am so happy that you were able to have the strength to avoid the physical affair. Great practice not to hug men other than your husband. I practice that one myself! Recently popular Community Organizers, especially in the Chicago area, carry on a model set in motion by increasingly well known Saul Alinsky, who worked there as well.
Since Hillary Clinton dedicated her thesis to Saul Alinsky, and has followed his edicts her entire adult life, and in her political goals, it is illogical for anybody believing in God to vote for a disciple of Saul, who worshiped Satan. Well, my sisters and brothers I am so hurt and ashamed.
They’re playing on your emotions.
I met this man online, on a Christian dating site. I will not compromise and date men who do not love god. Well, this man and I would pray together, talk about the word all the time. I mean everything was about God.

I desire a man to pray with and for me, just us walking in the things of god and doing gods will is my desire with a husband. This man started telling me how his father left him an inheritance and he had to go to another country to get it. He sent me a copy if the check that was his inheritance and he would pay me back when he got to my state. Well, to make the story short. I gave him money to get back to the states. This is a spiritual matter. Wolves will act one way around those they think matter and suddenly change behind closed doors. He was one of the nicest of people when relating to leadership, and he was to me until conflict happened.
We were once in a room prophesying over a woman. When the woman left the room, he turned to me and told me that the "devil had been telling him all about me. There is some rotten fruit in the life of a wolf. The Bible is very clear that we need to learn how to check the spiritual fruit in others. Are they people of peace, patience, gentleness and self-control?
Don't get me wrong; we've all fallen short in these areas. What are the situations that tend to follow them? Are they constantly stirring up chaos? Do they consistently set you on edge? Wolves are often accurate in the spiritual gifts. Please note that just because someone has spiritual gifts does not mean they are heaven-sent. Many times, I've seen people mistaken by these individuals just because they were gifted or because a 'prophetic word' seemed accurate. Please, pastors, do not put them in charge of your departments just because they are gifted.
What Does the Bible Say About Wolves In Sheeps Clothing ?
Watch their lives, because if you're not careful, they will devour your sheep. Wolves didn't always start out being wolves. I don't believe all wolves started out being wolves. Often, they are gifted individuals who just got lost somewhere along the way.
Both big wolf-encounters I faced had a similarity. The wolves were both people who had father fractures and never quite healed.
They were people who let the idea of success get in the way of morality. Somewhere they became deceived, and their judgment was clouded. They both believed that they were being used by God, but the fruit just wasn't there. The good news is that I believe that these people, along with other WISC, are not so far gone that they can't repent and turn back to God. I believe God still wants to use them; however, I believe they will have to go through a pruning season first. Perhaps you like me have found out about WISC the hard way.
The good news is that now you'll be better at spotting them. Wolves can be complicated. Pray for them from afar. Handle them how God is telling you to handle them. Be wise, and keep moving forward.

Impatience can be defined as 1 irritable behavior that results from delays or 2 a restless need for change and excitement.
These goals could range from getting ahead of you at the drive-thru to getting that promotion at work. As with stubbornness, we all have the tendency to be impatient at times. However, there are some individuals that take impatience to the extreme. These individuals detest being held up at anytime, anywhere, for almost any reason, and will manipulate any situation in order to come out on top. Impatience is a trait that develops from early negative experiences, misunderstanding the nature of self and others, and a persistent sense of insecurity. The early negative experiences often happen during childhood.
When they are not in firm control, they become angry, annoyed and frustrated. The best way to deal with the behavior is to be polite but direct. Do not beat around the bush with impatient people; this will get you nowhere. Do you struggle to fall asleep every night?
