"Counterfeit Christianity" Matthew 7:12-23 (Matthew: The Preaching of the King)

Have you ever been duped? Conned? Deceived? Have you ever been tricked into a counterfeit version of the real thing? As Jesus closes up the end of the Sermon on the Mount, He issues a real and sobering warning about the true nature of the Kingdom of God. Contrary to popular opinion, Jesus explains that it is possible to fall for a version of the God life that is no life at all. Jesus exposes the counterfeits we all face: counterfeit roads, counterfeit guides, and counterfeit spiritual success. May we all have ears to hear what Jesus is saying!
