By Their Fruits

In light of the current situation with the impeachment trial, I’d like to invite readers to complete a litmus test, if you will, of the participants in this modern debacle. In the bible, Jesus says of determining who or what is false, …”by their fruits ye shall know them.” from Matthew VII. Here is the whole chapter:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.               Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?                                                                  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.                                     A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.                                                   Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.                                                                   Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

I look around at my United States of America and see the fruit that has fallen in the last few years and I do not mistake it for good fruit. The ground is rotten with it. Can you feel the difference?
