I am beginning to understand something about the church. There are MASSIVE COUNTERFEIT CONVERSIONS IN THE CHURCH....MASSIVE COUNTERFEIT conversions bringing into the church a counterfeit kind of spirituality. The gospel has been so watered down. I mean there are demons that would be comfortable in many churches today. There are demons that could say "Amen" to the message being preached in the pulpit. You don't believe that? Let me read it to you [James 2:19Bible quoteThou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.James 2 verse 19]. Even the demons believe that God is Lord and they shutter. -David Wilkerson, Counterfeit Christianity-

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. Titus 1:16

These church people profess to love God and others but their mouth and actions are phony. They have no genuine love and compassion for others. They love only for as long as the relationship asks for nothing from them. As long as the relationship will cost them nothing they will love. Well, there are no conditions with God. The Bible says that God's greatest commandment is to love the Lord with all heart, soul and mind (Matthew 22:35-39Bible quote(verse 35) Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question], tempting him, and saying,

(verse 36) Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?

(verse 37) Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

(verse 38) This is the first and great commandment.

(verse 39) And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.Matthew 22 verses 35-39

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 1 John 4:20

Counterfeit Christians are troublemakers. Professing to be Christian but they have become some of the most hateful, evil, gossiping, murderous and dangerous hypocrites on the face of the earth today (2 Timothy 3, 2 Corinthians 12:20Bible quoteFor I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and [that] I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest [there be] debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults.2 Corinthians 12 verse 20). I have a name for some of them. It is "black widows." A local businessman told me that church people are all these things and then he added that they are also cheats, thieves and liars. Whenever he learns that a customer attends church somewhere he holds onto his wallet, he said. The church goers in my town have a very poor reputation of being "the nasty, ugly people."

These abominable activities coming out of the church and the negative reflection on people who the world thinks to be Christian should not be. If we who call ourselves Christians do not like what we see going on then what do people who do not claim to be Christian think about us? Christian people are supposed to be representatives of Jesus Christ. The church is trying to be like the world but God told us to "be ye separate" (2 Corinthians 6:17Bible quoteWherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you.2 Corinthians 6 verse 17). What kind of example are we setting for the rest of the unbelieving world?

To call oneself a Christian and to attend religious services does NOT give anyone a license to sin. Church people are headed for a great and mighty fall. A pit far deeper than so many have set for others. The church people who compromise the gospel and participate in these evils the Bible talks about will become more and more disillusioned as they continue to reject the truth. Read Judgment begins at the house of God.

This lying is the worst kind of counterfeit spirituality. There's never been a surrender. There's never been a separation from the world. There's been no heartbreak over sin. There's been no laying down of the past life... Jesus said "You people really don't want My Word. You don't tremble at it. You don't really want to hear it. You don't stop and let it sink in. My Word means nothing to you. You say you believe in Me but My Word doesn't have any meaning to you whatsoever. You say you are My disciples but you are not. 'If any man love the world then the Father is not in him.'" -David Wilkerson, Counterfeit Christianity-

Counterfeit Christians refuse correction. They refuse truth. They make all sorts of excuses for their wrong behavior. They scream "don't judge" and they twist Scripture to suit their lifestyle (Proverbs 1:7, 23-32, Proverbs 15:10Bible quoteCorrection [is] grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: [and] he that hateth reproof shall die.Proverbs 15 verse 10).

"We are doing nothing wrong. We are not evil. We love God. I am doing absolutely nothing wrong in the way I am living my life. The devil is not in me. The devil is not directing me. It is the Spirit of God that's in me. We are the children of God. We are special. We're chosen... We are being directed by God." This is what the Jews were saying to Jesus.

Jesus did not buy it at all. Jesus said.........I made it clear who my children are. You say you're a child of the Father? You're a child of God, My Father? Well, my children, the sons of God, are free from ALL TIES to this world. My sons are not unequally yoked with unbelievers. My sons have no fellowship with the works of darkness. My sons have no communion with the workers of wicked iniquity. My sons refuse to take my -- into the dens of iniquity...My sons are separated from this world...They touch not the unclean thing (1 Corinthians 6:14-18Bible quote(verse 14) And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

(verse 15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make [them] the members of an harlot? God forbid.

(verse 16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

(verse 17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

(verse 18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.1 Corinthians 6 verses 14-18
). -David Wilkerson, Counterfeit Christianity-

We are seeing the great falling away written about in 2 Thessalonians 2:3Bible quoteLet no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.2 Thessalonians 2 verse 3. It has been Satan's plan from the beginning to dismantle the House of God. To create division and discord and chaos. The best way that Satan could find to draw people away from God was to enter the church and re-write the Bible omitting all teaching about hell or repentance so that it does not offend anyone. He draws people with demonic powers, sex, lying signs and wonders, counterfeit manifestations and telling people what their itching ears want to hear (2 Timothy 4:3Bible quoteFor the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.2 Timothy 4 verse 3). The church is full of pride, jezebel spirits and whatever appeals to the flesh. We have sorcerers and diviners masquerading as men of God. Instead of people getting filled with God's Spirit we have people getting filled with demonic spirits then people mistakenly call it "a great move of God." Some of these people claim to love everybody but they seek selfish desires and spew out hatred to anyone who confronts them with their sin.

Counterfeit believers are blind to the bondage and slavery that they're under. They are under bondage and slavery and don't know it and they get mad if you try to show them.... When Jesus told these believers that they could not be His disciples unless they allowed His Word to break their sins they got offended. ..."IF you continue in My Word (John 8:31Bible quoteThen said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed.John 8 verse 31) shall live in truth and the truth will make you free" Jesus is implying they are in bondage... You say you believe in Me but you are not free. If you really believe in Me then you must obey My Word and continue in My Word. Whosoever practices sin is the servant... a slave to sin. -David Wilkerson, Counterfeit Christianity-

Men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil (John 3:19Bible quoteAnd this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.John 3 verse 19). David Wilkerson summarizes this way "If you're gonna say that you believe in me then you are going to come to me and let me expose everything that's in your life then I can change you and if you won't come to me then you are not My disciple. You cannot be My disciple unless you take ALL OF MY WORD and let it work in you..... NO ONE IS A TRUE BELIEVER unless His Word has a place in their heart."
