Know a Tree by Its Fruit

Allow me a little grace as I pick the fruits of Evolution’s “tree” and Creation’s “orchard.”

You will recognize them by their fruit. Grapes are not gathered from thorns or figs from thistles, are they? In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruitA good tree is not able to bear bad fruit, nor a bad tree to bear good fruit. — Jesus [Matthew 7:16-18 NET]

Creation’s orchard, God’s Word

Creation's Orchard

grapes and figs, good fruit

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control

see Galatians 5:22-23

Evolution’s tree, Man’s word

One response to “Know a Tree by Its Fruit”

  1. I have noticed a massive change in children toward their parents. Honor they mother and dad does not exist any more. Sad to say that the world has even taken my children despite spiritual upbringing. It gives me great pain
