Clear proof that multitudes in our day have been religiously brainwashed and deceived is revealed by how people commonly understand the teaching known as the wheat and tares (KJV). Please know the tares (or weeds) do not look like wheat, according to Jesusâ€™ teaching. Because this clashes with, and even negates, the teaching of eternal security, few have been taught this fact. Eternal security teachers want us to believe that oneâ€™s behavior has nothing to do with identifying who is saved and who isnâ€™t. Calvinism teaches that election is secret and some have been given only an evanescent grace (or counterfeit) by God! The Southern Baptists would say the carnal Christian acts just like the lost man but is not lost at all. Instead he is saved. Hence, Jesusâ€™ teaching in Mt. 13:24-30 is destructive to both fallacious versions, but has been twisted by false teachers to mean the very opposite
Matthew 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him,Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?..The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
