False prophet

[15] Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

[16] Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

[17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

[18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

[19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

[20] Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

— KJV, Matthew 7:15-20

A false prophet is someone that has bad fruit.

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

— KJV, Romans 13:10

A false prophet has bad fruit, that is he or she worketh evil to his neighbour.

Notice that it says wolf in sheep clothing [15]. So start looking for the sheep clothing to find the wolf. That basically means that you are likely to find them in churches. This is why I advice people to stay away from organized religion.

How should we deal with a false prophet ?

Deal with them as with the evil man. That is depart from them and avoid them.
