In Acts 20:29-31, Paul gives the severest warning that any leader could hear. Keep in mind that he does so with the deepest feelings his heart can emote. It is clear that Paul looked ahead to the time when he could not return to Ephesus or meet with the elders again. God had given him the wisdom to discern that after he left the elders, “fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.” If we stop reading there, we could assume that these sheep predators will come from outside the flock. Paul makes it clear that “from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted (misleading or perverted) things to draw away the disciples after them.” Let us probe further into this issue.
