What kind of "tree" brings forth murderers, child rapists, and thieves?

The heretical modernist tree!

The seminary’s were infiltrated by the communists starting in the 30’s see Bella Dodd’s testimony in the congressional record, then the homo’s and vietnam war rejects entering seminary’s in the 60’s & 70’s but mostly modernists

The holy church never teaches anyone to do such things

The unity of the holy church founded by Christ on Peter and the apostles is such that it cannot be harmed by the sins of men!

Automatic excommunication is incured upon the exercise of the intellect and will to teach error or Hersey or to commit grave sin!

So the bride is spotless and without blemish!

The members of Christ in communion with God and each other are in a state of sanctifying grace!

We deplore the sins and outrages of abuse, most of which is done by homo’s on young boys, in any group especially those calling themselves Christian, the communists began infiltration in the seminary’s in the 30’s and the modernist’s and homo’s in the 60’s and 70’s

This is a symptom of error and Hersey of
Modernism or theological liberalism, of the modern apostasy and nowhere does the true church teach anyone to do these things, nor do the Protestant sects which have the same issues!

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Considering what God said to Cain in Genesis 4:6-7, it seems that he might have had an opportunity to have not become the murderer - and this is in addition to Abel having found God's favour, and also Noah for that matter. So, although the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the tree that brought sin into the world, I don't think it can be said that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is responsible for bringing forth murderers, child rapists and thieves. In fact an additional point to notice is that God Himself has knowledge of good and evil, denoted by Genesis 3:22 where He says "the man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil" - which seems to suggest that it should be possible to have the knowledge of good and evil without it leading to murder, rape and theft.

Therefore the tree spoken of in Matthew 7:18 must be something metaphorical, allegorical, drawing upon poetic symbolism of carnal trees in order to describe the nature of the spiritual truths. So it is the spiritual truths that we need to be considering, and when we ask what are the spiritual roots of murder, rape and theft, we have been given some insights through the scriptures:

Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer—and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him (1 John 3:15).

As to rape and theft, they are of the same root: covetousness and selfishness, from being discontent and not giving consideration to the one from whom you are taking (Exodus 20:17, Matthew 7:12). If there is any church which produces these fruits, then it is because the institution itself makes way for it (Proverbs 29:12). I don't think it is fair to say that an institution itself is the cause of the problem (unless somehow the constitution of the institution makes way for it), and I say this because an institution is always implemented by leaders and those leaders are destined to change from time to time. With every change of leadership there comes a change of values, and if by chance an institution becomes led by those who would not hearken unto lies then it may be an institution that produces the proper fruit (consider Hebrews 7:12).
