Nevertheless, how does one determine exactly who the enemy is inside the Church? How can we know who the false prophets are? Christ Himself gave us the answer.
Matthew 7:16 By their fruit you will recognize them.
Bishop Athanasius Schneider made the same mistake as the Pharisees. They ignored the fruits. In the Gospel of Matthew Chapter 12, the Pharisees accused Jesus of driving out demons through Beelzebul. What the Pharisees say did not make any sense. Satan will never drive out demons. According to Jesus:
Matthew 12: And if I drive out demons by Beelsebul, by whom do your people drive them out?
ONLY the Holy Spirit can drive out demons. And ONLY the Holy Spirit can convert a sinner. However, according to the jungle who quoted Bishop Schneider:
So the fruit of conversions is not a decisive criterion for me and I will not invite this good Protestant group which converts sinners and has a lot of children to my diocese to engage in apostolate. This is the illusion of many bishops, who are blinded by the so-called fruits.Bishop Schneider labeled the Neocatechumenal Way a "Protestant group". Yet, ONLY the Holy Spirit can convert sinners. It is impossible for man to convert on his own power. After all, even the Apostle Paul was converted by God. Like the Pharisees who could not see that it was the Holy Spirit who drove out demons, Bishop Schneider could not see that it was the Holy Spirit who converted sinners. Therefore, the Holy Spirit must certainly be working within this so-called "Protestant group" rather than his diocese. Satan cannot and will not convert sinners no more than he would drive out demons. Both the jungle and Bishop Schneider are blind to Jesus' words of Truth: "By their fruit you will recognize them."
