“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
The Bible warns to test those who claim to be Christians.
The Bible also warns of false apostles, false workers, false spirits, seducers, false Christs and false teachers–among others.
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
What does the Bible say about those who inhabit the end times churches?
Grievous wolves, ravening wolves, wolves in sheep’s clothing, seducers, evil men, false prophets, false Christs, ungodly men, “men…speaking perverse things,” false teachers, “them which cause division and offences contrary to doctrine…by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple,” false apostles, deceitful workers, “ministers of Satan” who present themselves as “ministers of righteousness”: this is who the Bible warns will be in the churches.
—End Times Churches: Broken Beyond Repair
Jesus Himself warned of the tares (Matthew 13:24-30,36-42), which LOOK like wheat (Christians), but are really weeds.
But after all the warnings, people are STILL taken in by those who claim to be Christians.
Laura Ingraham: Conservative Christians don’t have a shot at the White House – Newsflash: Real Christians aren’t focused on the White House or the earthly power it represents.
It is a very different story with CINOs (Christians in Name Only) however. It’s all about building or participating in earthly kingdoms.
Counterfeit Christians are all about riches and power and other things of this world, many of them claiming “Look at all the good I can do!”
Yeah, look at all of the so-called “good” they do while disregarding the Word of God.
“And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.”
The man of sin will play these CINOs like a violin when he arrives on the scene.
And the counterfeit apostates will be loving it.
Counterfeit Christians are easy to spot.
As are tares, pretenders and other Christians In Name Only.
IS the reader caught up in the things of this world?
THIS does not only mean material goods, it also means ANY appetites/lusts which are catered to and seeking/enjoying the approval of this world.
It is not yet too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
