The Bible is serious, and about 90% of it is impossible to read, quote, or preach with a grin. By the way “the fruit” of Matthew 7:15-20 has to be more than a smile and a feel good boost, for the message and the messenger.
Would you like to read about the Cheshire cat on Wikipedia?
“The Cheshire Cat is afictional catpopularised by Lewis Carroll inAlice’s Adventures in Wonderlandand known for its distinctive mischievous grin. While most often celebrated in “Alice”-related contexts, the Cheshire Cat predates the 1866 novel and has transcended the context of literature and become enmeshed in popular culture, appearing in various forms of media, from political cartoons to television, as well as cross-disciplinary studies, from business to science. One of its distinguishing features is that from time to time its body disappears, the last thing visible being its iconic grin.“
How do you recognize a False Prophet today? As always, they must be popular, especially to the world; and If they smile all the time like a Cheshire cat in Alice and Wonderland, while they are mouthing a watered down 10% of Bible to “win friends and influence people” and make you feel good about yourself.
“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.”
