Got Tares?

The Bible says “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:24-30 (KJV)

Here was a field of wheat which that wicked one planted tares (weeds) and when the seed first took root all looked the same. However, when they had grown it became apparent there was not only good wheat but mixed in fake wheat or tares were evident. Rather than destroy good wheat trying to pull out the fake wheat it was decided to wait until the harvest and then gather the good wheat and store it and gather the fake wheat and burn them.

Tragically, there are many pews and pulpits filled with wheat and also with tares. For the pews it is often people trying to live with one foot in the world and one foot in the church. As my Brother Donnie Chapman says, “The Shackers, Slackers and Six-packers.” For the pulpits there are who preach a different Gospel than is taught in Scripture. Some teach a bloodless Gospel, some teach an inherited salvation, some teach a cult salvation founded on ritual, or works salvation. False doctrine is fatal doctrine. We must not fall for it. We must not wallow in such mire. We need the truth and Truth is a Person (John 14:6)

There is coming a day when all shall have to stand and give an account. Please be certain you are on the winning side with Jesus.
