Can you spot a spiritual counterfeit? Jude knew the real thing. In his New Testament writing he tells us how to spot a counterfeit Christian--apostates who may look like believers on the outside, but are not on the inside. Christians are not Christians because they are theological scholars, or ordained ministers. They're Christians because they believe in the real thing and live in that belief. In this message, Dr. Merritt details five ways to spot a spiritual counterfeit.

"They are clouds of happiness, clouds of inclusiveness, and clouds of tolerance. But they give no water of the gospel, no rain of Bible preaching, no showers of blessing from a pulpit pouring out the water of life. The only thing the apostate can bring is the drought of doubt. He has no confidence in the Word of God, and no message from the God of the Word." --Dr. Merritt
