Q. What is a worker of iniquity according to the Lord and how do we avoid being numbered among them? I am a Christian who has put his faith and trust on the Lord for eternal life but Matthew 7 still scares me a bit
A. In Matt. 7:15-23 Jesus was talking about false prophets. The Greek word translated iniquity means “lawless” or “wicked.” Jesus used the term to describe these false prophets.
They apparently performed counterfeit miracles which they used to deceive people. In Matt. 7:23 Jesus also said he never knew them, which means they had never been saved.
If you’re a born again believer, you don’t have to worry about becoming one of them.
