The other day Lydia was surprised to see a wolf putting on sheep's clothing . . . Lydia was sitting in an attorney's office, looking for Godly counsel for her upcoming court date. The attorney sat behind his huge desk and grinned, "Yes, I, too, am a Christian," he said. Lydia almost fell off her chair. Here sat a man whose office required him to file lawsuits, swear oaths and seek vengeance. Yet he claims to be a follower of Christ!
Lydia decided to give him a religious test. She pulled out a form for him to sign that declared, "I am a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven and I give my allegiance to Jesus Christ. I renounce all allegiance and fidelity to every foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty whatsoever and to the world itself."
This attorney, who had already sworn loyalty oaths to support the state and federal laws, had no qualms about signing this declaration. He proved himself to be a deceiver, for no man can serve two masters. All he was doing was putting on a sheep's coat to gain Lydia's trust. He was not truly renouncing the world or he would have to quit his job. He was not Godly counsel. He was a liar, a liar from the beginning.
