If there is one thing that the world is sick and tired of the most it would be lying, thiefing, arrogant, hypocritical people who profess to be Christian but they are not!
And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.John 5:40-43
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2 Peter 2:2
My mother's Nelson Study Bible in Jude 1:12-13(verse 12) These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are] without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
(verse 13) Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.Jude 1 verses 12-13 has a subheading that reads "Apostates DEPRAVED and DOOMED."

Read John 8 about Jesus Christ encounter with counterfeit believers. David Wilkerson goes on to say,
Jesus warns us in John 8 about counterfeit Christians. He calls them LIARS.
Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying. John 8:55
When Jesus calls these counterfeit believers liars and a brood of vipers then they try to stone Jesus (Matthew 3:7-8(verse 7) But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
(verse 8) Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:Matthew 3 verses 7-8, John 8:59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.John 8 verse 59) so we know that something is wrong and that these people cannot be genuine Christians. These believers are hypocrites.
These people are hypocrites... My Word has not touched them. My Word has got no place in them yet. ....There are people today just like these Jews who can say 'I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe Jesus is God in the flesh.' They can believe every promise in the book. They believe everything, Jesus is Lord...they ... all as if to say 'so what' and move on. It never touches them. The Word doesn't do anything for them...They pick up their lovely ways and go their way. They claim to be believers but the Word has found no place in them and according to Jesus THEY'RE NOT SAVED....they can give 'yes, He is the Son of God. Every Word He preaches is true' but that Word does nothing in their heart. They don't accept anything into their heart. They are satisfied with the way they are. -David Wilkerson, Counterfeit Christianity-
These church people can put on a good holy act in front of their friends and the pastor but some of these people go to the supermarket after the service to pick up their cigarettes and beer. Some of these people are in a club getting drunk on Saturday night. Some of these people are shacked up together with illegitimate children and even teaching Sunday School or Bible study classes. Some just go around fornicating whenever the desire hits, or getting involved in affairs and adultery. These people are not even trying to live right because they already believe they are living right. They are living for themselves. Just whatever FEELS GOOD. The preacher does not want to offend anyone by telling them their behavior is sin. So often today the preachers are no better and perhaps even worse.
That is just what they are... FOLLOWERS. People "follow" anyone who will not offend them. People are always looking for a leader in MAN because they cannot think for themselves. People follow and worship their pastors without question. They assume that whatever they hear is true. They believe whatever scriptures they are given and never study them on their own. People and preachers are writing their own bibles and so few people recognize a counterfeit bible to the real one. Instead of reading the Bible for oneself people show up in a church house to hear someone dictate a message to them and since they do not read their own Bibles they have no clue where the discrepancies are or how far away from God they are being led astray. Instead of looking to God to guide them, people keep turning to man and to demonic spirit guides.
Jesus warned us again about these counterfeit Christians with a parable about the wheat and the tares (Matthew 13:24-30(verse 24) Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
(verse 25) But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
(verse 26) But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
(verse 27) So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
(verse 28) He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
(verse 29) But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
(verse 30) Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.Matthew 13 verses 24-30)... just because they are counterfeit doesn't mean they don't have great power and charisma."
