What did Jesus warn us of false prophets?
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Mat 7:15)Jacques was a small time lawyer who used a high profile case to rise to local fame. When he was an attorney against Cleco he gave us every reason to mistrust Cleco. He only did it to shine his own star. Jacques was lying. Jacques was saying those things so that we would elect him. It doesn't matter all those other things that Jacques told us during the campaign. Smart growth? Cleco was the single issue that made his political run. Jacques used the Cleco issue and our high utility bills as his springboard. It worked. But Jacques wasn't going to hold Cleco to the truth. He just wanted to be mayor.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Mat 7:16)Before he was mayor, Jacques was the attorney for the Levee District. The same Levee District that bears no fruit, only thorns and thistles. Jacques is well aware of the do nothing Levee District. He himself has financial gain from emplyment with the do nothing Levee District. His father replaced Jacques as the attorney for the Levee District. Jacques expects us to believe that he wasn't a part of this playboy organization of good ole boys? Jacques expects us to believe that he doesn't have a conflict as the past attorney and his father as the current attorney at the Levee District? Jacques expects us to believe that he wasn't helping out his playboy friends by having the city hire Owen & White to do the levee certification work? Shame on us if we would buy this pack of obscene lies from Jacques M. Roy.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. (Mat 7:18)Everything that Jacques does is built around his own political gain. You know the type. A guy who would sell out his own mother just to get elected. We got a lot of those types in this country. Nothing good can come from this sort of selfishness. It is a tree that bears evil fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. (Mat 7:19)The TT has been giving us more and more reasons why nobody should read it. They are in love with Jacques. They believe his lies are the truth. They love Jacques the way that the Sanhedrin loved Barabbas over Jesus. Where do you think Barabbas and the Sanhedrin are now? This is what God has in store for those who lie, think only of themselves and prey on the good intentions of others.
