Spiritual Fruit Inspectors?

Jesus said, “You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?  Matthew 7:16 Further, he says “Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.” Matthew 7:20  See also; Luke 6:43, Luke 6:44, Matthew 12:33, and Galatians 5:22



Jesus wants us to inspect the kind and quality of other’s fruit.  Doesn’t he?

How do we biblically deal with bad fruit in others?

How should we react when others want to inspect our fruit?

    Another good question….Does spiritual fruit include actively seeing God move in someone’s life, or is it confined to the fruits of the spirit + harvest (soul winning) as is so frequently taught?

    I ask this because fruits of the spirit can to an extent be “faked” around certain people, and nobody has the right to judge whether someone was actually saved (much less by a certain person) so how does one get past these potentially flawed judgements or “inspections” of ones fruit?
