Ravenous Wolves Like to Wear Sheep’s Clothing


Matthew 7:15-20


Jesus said we would be judged on our works.

He warned us to beware of false prophets.

If they come from God, they will bear good fruit.

If they do not, then hang on to your loot.


False prophets lead the good people astray.

Jesus Christ is the way; what do you say?

Wheat with the chaff and have a hearty laugh.

You can’t put sheep’s clothing on a giraffe.


It’s not enough to pray and go to Mass.

Let’s be faithful like Job and Abraham.

Tribulation comes to every nation.

Work together without hesitation.


Jonathan Winters as Maude Frickert and

Flip Wilson as Geraldine were funny.
