In this day and age, manipulation and deception grow in access! You never know who’s telling the truth!
Soak in these words that the Lord Jesus candidly spoke, I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber (John 10:1, NIV).
A few breaths later, Jesus, as He was continuing to talk about the Shepherd and His flock, made this very clear: The theif comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it (abundantly) to the full (John 10:10, NIV).
Abundance is in the Truth, not in the pious put-on.
