<<fake, sham>>

Something false is a counterfeit; it is not genuine but a distortion of the truth, designed to give a wrong impression, and is thus a form of deception. What
is artificial gives the appearance of being real yet misleads people.

People who know the facts about Christ and claim to be Christians yet do not live as He instructs are in fact false disciples, and He said they will not enter heaven, neither will all who “love and practice falsehood” (Mt 7:21; Rev 22:15).

  “Put off falsehood and speak truthfully…”                                               – Ephesians 4:25
