Wolf found that shepherd's clothing is better

Wolf found that shepherd’s clothing is better

Paul the apostle had warned the church about these people – the ones I call “wolf in shepherd’s clothing”. In 1 Corinthians 11:20, Paul had wrote down the characteristics of these fake people.

  • they enslave you
  • they devour you
  • they take from you
  • they exalt themselves
  • they strike you in the face

These wolf set up lordship over your consciences, destroyed your freedom of opinions, made you subservient to their will. Just remember this old quote, “all fanatics are slaves to some fanatical leader”.

These wolf devour you and take everything from you. They are always rapacious. They seek the property, not the souls of those to whom they minister. Not satisfied with a maintenance, they aim to obtain all, and their plans are formed to secure as much as possible of those to whom the minister. When Paul writing it down, he had imagined just like lion that take over its prey.

You can see that behind their fake humble, they set themselves as a ruler and claim submission. Their arrogance steal the glory of Christ for themselves.

When the Bible say how they strike you in the face, it is not to be supposed that this occurred literally among the churches; but the idea is, that they really treated you with as little respect as if they smote them on the face.

So, please be alert! Hell has sent their agents and they wear shepherd’s clothing.[/en]

Rasul Paulus sudah memperingatkan gereja tentang orang-orang ini – mereka yang saya sebut “serigala berjubah pendeta”. Dalam 1 Korintus 11:20, Paulus sudah menuliskan karakter dari hamba-hamba Tuhan yang penuh kepalsuan ini.

  • mereka memperhambakan kamu
  • mereka menghisap kamu
  • mereka menguasai kamu
  • mereka berlaku angkuh terhadap kamu
  • mereka menampar kamu

Serigala-serigala ini menjadi pemimpin atas kesadaran dan cara berpikir Anda, mereka menghacurkan kebebasan berpendapat, dan membuat Anda tunduk kepada mereka – seringkali melebihi ketundukan kepada Tuhan dan Firman-Nya. Ingatlah kutipan lama ini, “all fanatics are slaves to some fanatical leader”.

Mereka ini menghisap dan menguasai Anda. Mereka akan selalu tamak dan serakah. Mereka mencari harta dari orang-orang yang mereka layani. Tidak puas hanya sebagai seorang penatalayanan, mereka mau menguasai semuanya, dan akan melakukan apapun untuk mengamankan orang-orang yang bisa memuaskan keserakahannya. Saat Paulus menulis hal ini, dia menyamakan mereka seperti singa yang menangkap dan menguasai hewan buruannya.

Di balik kerendahan hati yang palsu, Anda bisa melihat bagaimana mereka menempatkan diri sebagai penguasa, dan menuntut ketundukan mutlak. Arogansi mereka mencuri kemuliaan Kristus untuk diri mereka sendiri.

Saat Alkitab menuliskan bahwa mereka menampar Anda, ini tidak berarti literal, tetapi bagaimana mereka memperlakukan Anda tanpa menghargai sebagai sesama manusia, memperlakukan Anda lebih rendah, seperti tamparan penghinaan di muka umum.

Jadi, tolong waspada, berhati-hati, berjaga-jagalah! Neraka sudah mengirimkan agen-agennya, dan mereka mengenakan jubah gembala.[/id]
