We see it in spy movies all the time — the gut-wrenching twist when the best friend, close relative or family member turns out to be the double agent the hero was looking for. The shock, the pain, the horror rifles through our hero as the one he or she loved has turned out to be the enemy.
But what if there are double agents right next to us in the pews? Every Sunday, we sit next to them, break bread with them, sing praises and all the while, they’re working for the Enemy.
In the spy movies, the hero is aware there may be a double agent within the organization. He watches diligently, searching for the clues, assessing his team members, his leader trying to determine who could it be. Yet in our churches, we’re not as diligent. When the double agent enters it’s often because we allowed the church doors open to all without using discernment to see if this so called brother and sister in Christ is in fact who they say they are.
Jesus warned us of this some time ago. Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” However one has to wonder if the Church has forgotten this. When strange doctrines, teachings, and liberties come into the church that seek to change the nature of God, revision the work of Christ, and other heinous things, we need to understand there are double agents in the Church.
