Ferocious Wolves

Powerful words to consider: “hypocrites”; “child of hell”; “blind guides”; “fools”; “whited sepulchres”; “full of… iniquity”; “serpents”; “generation of vipers”; “murderers” "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”--pretty strong words to come from Jesus—the sometimes described meek and mild. I have borrowed from Jesus the idea of “ferocious wolves” to describe people of our day. Another term that is often used is “shark”. Generally we are speaking of people who, like the Pharisees, put on a surface show of righteousness, even cordiality, kindness, and caring, which turns out in fact to be deceitfulness replete with self-righteousness and a sometimes meticulously concealed hyper ferocity of hatred and rapacity. We are living in a time of “muddy rainy weather.” God grant us discernment.
