Matthew 7:13

The Lord teaches us that many "ravening wolves shall come in sheep's clothing." Now, what are these sheep's clothing's, but the external surface of the Christian profession? Who are the ravening wolves but those deceitful senses and spirits which are lurking within to waste the flock of Christ? Who are the false prophets but deceptive predictors of the future? Who are the false apostles but the preachers of a spurious gospel?35 Who also are the Antichrists, both now and evermore, but the men who rebel against Christ? [Tertullian Adv Marc 2.13.3 KROYMANN Aem., CCL 1 (1954), (p.490, l.29) BP1]
