My son and I were watching Border Wars yesterday and the drug agents seized over $400,000 dollars in one truck trying to cross back into Mexico!!! I thought it was going to be counterfeit bills, but it turned out to be real money!!!
Speaking of counterfeits I’ve noticed a growing trend in churches today. I see more and more “Bible studies” supposedly focusing on exposing false prophets, frauds, fakes, and counterfeit religions. I am deeply distressed by this tendency. Even Banks and Grocery Stores know that the only way to train their cashiers to spot a counterfeit is to train them to know the authentic.
The lesson is this: Teach the Truth only! Jesus is Truth. When training people to spot counterfeits don’t teach them about counterfeits. When training people to spot counterfeits train them to be aware of counterfeits but to know the authentic. Then they will easily be able to spot a counterfeit because they know what the True looks like. Just like in the video above…hold the bill up to “The Light”….and know what a real bill looks like. Then it will be just like second nature spotting the frauds.
I see Satan
diverting leading well-meaning(?) church leaders down a path that Jesus warns not to go down. A little yeast works through the whole “Dough”!
“Beware of false prophets. They come to you disguised as sheep, but in their hearts they are vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15
“Why don’t you understand that I wasn’t talking to you about bread? Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees!” Then they understood that he didn’t say to watch out for the yeast in bread, but to watch out for the teachings of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Matthew 16:11 & 12
