Thomas Ellis's comment on 2014-06-05 08:36:55:

When he said this, Jesus was addressing the question of how to distinguish between authentic and false prophets. To put it another way, He was providing a fool proof litmus test for evaluating others ' belief systems we judge them not by the words they use even if they claim "I have been saved " or "I believe... " but rather by the way in which their beliefs whatever they may be manifest themselves in their conduct in the world, and the effects they have on others. "Fruits " GK karpon means the same as "fruition " you can evaluate another person 's belief system only by whether or not their actions have a beneficial and inspiring effect on others around them whether they are kind, decent, and helpful, or self righteous, mean spirited, and oppressive.

Action speaks louder than words, if one is of the lord Jesus, Jesus will do works of obedience through them for God and their salvation; not works of men for men.
